Including peanut butter in your 'fit' goals

You’ve heard the saying “New Year, New You”, right?

With the beginning of a new year, people are eagerly making New Year’s resolutions to better their lives. Among the top New Year’s resolutions comes the opportunity to become a healthier human, but not only healthy, rather fit. Per NBC News, there were over 62,776,640 searches to how to lead a more successful and healthy life for the start of 2017. That’s a variety of people that are interested in rejuvenating their lives and making a positive change!

With all this talk about becoming a healthier, more fit individual, the gym is getting busier. What these gym junkies may not realize is that peanut butter is an amazing way to refuel your body post-workout! It is recommended that a 2-tablespoon serving of peanut butter after a workout can provide 6 grams of carbohydrates and 8 grams of protein. Studies at Iowa State University have suggested that gym junkies that “consume 20 grams of protein after a workout can provide maximum muscle repair and recovery”. Muscle repair and recovery is crucial in building and maintaining muscle growth in the body.
