I think the majority of us can all agree on one thing: peanut butter is magical.

Some girls dream of love. I dream of being able to eat a whole jar of peanut butter without gaining weight. This is hilarious!

Okay, maybe not that magical but it’s still pretty fantastic. On a daily basis, my son asks me if he can eat “peanut butter with a spoon” (my famous and secret recipe ). The proudest day was when he asked me if we could cuddle, eat peanut butter with a spoon, and watch Netflix. Hmm…I wonder where he got that from.

Some fun facts about peanuts: 

  • 96% of Canadian’s eat peanut butter, 79% of us eat it once a week – I eat it more than that.
  • 85% of Canada’s peanuts come from the US, coming from 25,000 American growers.
  • To grow peanuts requires sandy soil and hot dry weather, so peanuts are a big import to Canada.
  • Peanuts have more protein than any other nut and a combination of fiber and healthy fats that keep your satisfied. They’re a great snack to have on hand when you’re watching your weight.

A tip when it comes to measuring out the peanut butter, it’s just a guideline. If you do a heaping amount of peanut butter (like I did) that’s more than welcome. The more peanut butter, the merrier!
