In honor of National Peanut Butter Day, we suggest paying homage by adding a scoop of your favorite childhood snack to your protein shake.
Perfect for those looking to add muscle, two tablespoons of peanut butter contains on average eight grams of protein, which helps to build muscle. It also contains six grams of carbs, which helps your body utilize that protein. Studies have also shown that the saturated fats found in peanut butter can reduce your risk of heart disease.
Besides boasting numerous health benefits, it also adds flavor and thickness to your post-workout shake.
Whether creamy or crunchy is a better option; that debate still rages.
