Tips for making sure you have the freshest and healthiest peanut butter:

  • Ideally, if you could buy your own nuts and grind them up, you can be sure there are no chemicals, preservatives, sugars, or anything else you don’t want your kids eating.  And if you want to add a little sugar, try this delicious recipe for nut butter!
  • An alternative, and just as healthy: Look for markets that have a peanut butter dispenser/ grinder.  This has been the cheapest way I’ve seen to get all natural peanut butter (I believe my store has it for .10 per ounce).
  • Lastly, when buying commercial peanut butter, as always check the ingredient list.  If peanuts are the only thing listed, BINGO! Buy it!  waffle sandwich2waffle sandwich with child

This looks delicious, my kids would love it… I would love it! My favorite snack lately has been apples or strawberries with Justin’s brand Natural Maple Almond butter. Have you tried that?

Hi, I was just enlightened after watching a small video with Healthy Iva. She was teaching me that canola oil is very bad for your health. I was surprised to learn that as that is my second oil on the shelf next to olive oil. I will be doing further research on the topic.BUT in the meantime ~ listen to Iva and don’t use it!

Hi Patricia,
I understand your concern. There is much hype out there about canola oil being a bad oil. However, I have read the “research” that the anti-canola people site, and I do not find it credible. Just know, you will find LOADS of people supporting the hypothesis, but that doesn’t make it true. There is evidence that canola oil does not contribute to heart disease, high cholesterol, and even diabetes.
The canola council has links to many of the research articles here: http://www.canolacouncil.org/canolabib/default.aspx
Also, check out this mayoclinic Q&A here: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/canola-oil/AN01281
Also, some of the myths about canola oil are debunked here: http://urbanlegends.about.com/library/blcanola3.htm

I do realize, many people still won’t accept canola oil as a healthier alternative, and that is totally fine! The less we use of all processed oils, the better!
