No food is perfect, though; there are some cautions with peanuts. Hopefully, you are not one of the 1% that is highly allergic to peanuts.
Make sure you are using good peanut butter. Read the label. Natural, old-fashioned organic peanut butter with no hydrogenated fats and sugar is the best. Choose peanut butter that contains only peanuts and salt. This kind is full of peanut flavor and doesn’t contain additives and is better for the environment too. Refrigerate it and turn it upside down in the fridge so the peanut oils and solids can re-mix.
This is good peanut butter with no unhealthy additives and is organic too.

Find out the health benefits of the other ingredients I used for this recipe:
Spinach was a superfood even before there was the term superfood. I’m referring of course to Popeye the Sailor Man. One can of the green stuff and he turned into muscle popping tornado of energy. Even without Popeye’s recommendation, spinach contains more nutrients per calorie than any other food on the earth. It is loaded with vitamins like A, K, D, and E and a host of trace minerals and is a good source of omega 3 fatty acid.
Banana – Bananas are healthy for you and that’s a good thing since they are the most popular fruit in North America.
Everyone loves bananas. There are more songs, jokes, and silliness with this food than with any other plant on earth. Bananas are superfoods!
