Nowadays people are very busy with their routine life. We hardly get time to eat good stuff on regular intervals. Unfortunately many of us don’t concentrate on the diet during their work hours. It’s a fact that people generally go for tasty food, rather than the healthy foods which improve their health conditions. We hardly bother about the amount of nutrients contained in our food which we eat in our daily life. Usually our food contains 34% fat, 11% proteins, 65% carbohydrates, but as per RDA diet, our intake must contain 30% fat, 15% protein and 65% carbohydrates which have difference of 4-5 % in fat and protein percentage. There may be a little difference in the percentage but it may have a considerable effect on our health.
Though the intake percentage of proteins is less in our diet when compared to other nutrients, proteins play a crucial role in the fitness maintenance. It is mainly preferred for sports persons and patients as they give instant energy when consumed. Mainly the consumption of protein must be more during pregnancy, childhood, and adolescent periods, as it is the growing age for infants in mother’s womb and children respectively. The most suggested time for consuming protein is in the morning and post exercise.
In the vegetarian food, proteins are available in grains and pulses, nuts and nut butter, fruits, vegetables and dairy products (casein). In the non-vegetarian food proteins are available in egg, fish and meat. Though in all the above mentioned products proteins being consumed are not up to the desired amount. Whereas peanuts are rich in proteins, and consuming very less quantity of peanuts can give you huge amounts of protein instantly. As many of us may not prefer to consume raw peanuts every day, peanut butter has been introduced in the markets which is tasty and is easy to store at room temperatures and can also be consumed daily in the breakfast.
Incas were the first to grind peanuts to make peanut butter and from then it has spread like the fire in the forest because of its health and fitness benefits. It can also be prepared at home and can be stored at room temperature so that it can be free from artificial storing preservatives.
If you don’t have enough time and energy to follow the above procedure to make a peanut butter, then simply buy a quality peanut butter from the market. One of the best available products for peanut butter is Sundrop peanut butter, which is available in two different flavors.
Peanut butter has high amounts of proteins, as 2 spoons of peanut butter contain 8 gm of proteins.
