From peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to a nutritious topping for your morning bowl of oatmeal, peanut butter has been with us through thick and thin, from childhood to adulthood.
If you don't have a peanut allergy, you probably already have a favorite kind of peanut butter, whether it's smooth or crunchy, sweetened or salty, regular or organic, store-bought or homemade.
Use it as a spread, dip apples in it, or even add it to sauces and salad dressings. However, here's something you probably weren't aware of: peanut butter has one major drawback.
You probably learned as a child that peanut butter is healthy. It is a good source of protein, healthy fat, and fiber, as well as a decent amount of iron and magnesium.
Peanut butter can help you feel fuller for longer after any meal or snack. But here's the kicker: peanut butter lovers who are more sensitive to it may experience an inflammatory reaction as a result of daily consumption.
Even if you have never been allergic to peanut butter before, consuming it on a daily basis can lead to a peanut intolerance, which isn't as bad as an allergy but is still unpleasant to deal with.
Fatigue, rashes on the skin, acne, and weight gain are all signs of peanut butter intolerance. Therefore, obtaining bloodwork is recommended if you have experienced some of those symptoms and consume peanut butter on a daily basis.
The good news is that food intolerances can be reversed, unlike allergies. You can successfully reintroduce the offensive food after a period of time by removing it from your everyday meals for a short time and diversifying your diet.
People who enjoy eating the same foods day after day for months or even years are more likely to suffer from food intolerances. Even though we already know that these things can be changed, you don't really want to have to eliminate foods from your diet, do you?
Modesty is essential. You can still enjoy peanut butter on a regular basis if you like it, but maybe try having it every other day or every two days or so.
You'll be able to take advantage of every advantage without having to worry about any negative side effects. When it comes to peanut butter, it turns out that "too much of a good thing" is a very real thing.
