Peanut butter isn't just for PB&Js, though it was made for that role. You can also use peanut butter in a variety of dishes and dips, especially those with an Asian influence — think curries, satay and even Pad Thai. It's a great source of protein so when you eat it as a spread on fruits and vegetables, you're getting a double dose of health benefits. Add it to smoothies, spread some on a cracker or just eat it with a spoon — peanut butter is a must-have for any pantry. You can also head to your local natural foods store and get additive- and preservatives-free peanut butter that's ground fresh right in front of you. If the natural version isn't sweet enough, add a little honey to it for a taste your family will love.
