Yes or No to Peanut Butter?

Snap Fitness

There is some debate on whether peanut butter is good or bad for you. Peanut butter IS good for you assuming:

1. You don’t have a sensitivity or allergy to them (this can be tested by doing an ALCAT test or elimination diet to determine sensitivity).

2. You consume natural peanut butter where the ingredients are peanuts and salt. Examples: Parkers Farms or GoodLife Peanut Butter.
