Peanut Butter and Almond Butter… which is healthier? And do you have to keep peanut butter and other nut butters in the refrigerator?? Today I’m chatting with Registered Dietician Kath Younger from KathEats.com to compare PB and AB. Which should you be eating?
I felt like I was getting sick on Friday. Nooooo… so I tried to stop it with all the magic stay healthy tricks I know. I hit up the store for the supplements and have the Sleep Works at home if I have trouble sleeping or when my schedule is off from travel.
Gargling salt water (warm salt water)
Plus extra sleep, taking extra rest on my running schedule, healthy food and repeat.
And now the main event…
Peanut Butter versus Almond Butter – Which is Better?
Registered Dietician Kath Younger from KathEats.com breaks down Peanut Butter versus Almond Butter. She shares the benefits of each and her preference for whether or not to keep them in the fridge.
Is one healthier? Do you need to keep them in the fridge?
Peanut Butter – lower in calories, higher in protein … More affordable
Almond Butter – higher in fiber, more mono-unsaturated fat, more iron and vitamin E, 2x magnesium than PB, 10x calcium, …. More expensive.
If budget is not an issue and you like both PB and AB… you should choose almond butter because of the slightly better nutrition profile. But the differences are not that significant that one of them is going to change your life if you’re eating a reasonable amount.
Kath is famous for her love of oatmeal. Several of her pictures feature the ‘drippy’ nut butter she mentioned on the podcast. If you love oatmeal p0rn check out the page on her blog dedicated to oatmeal…
