Peanuts- More Than They Are Cracked Up To Be

While it was recently peanut butter lover’s day, it is also National Peanut month. While there are many who suffer from peanut allergies, if you do not, there are some amazing peanut recipes out there. I have found this link to ten absolutely delectable recipes. It includes snacks such as Homemade Crunchy Peanut Butter with Maple Syrup, main dishes like the Bakes Smoked Salmon, Miso Peanut Butter, Crunchy Salad and Lime, sides, and desserts! If you want to go a little more well known, I also found this delicious Pad Thai recipe.

Peanuts are not just good for you, they have a plethora of beneficial properties, including lowering your risk for heart disease and diabetes, reducing inflammation, and lowering blood pressure. The Peanut Institute’s website has all kinds of interesting facts on this, and also important resources to back up their facts. Don’t wait, start getting those benefits now (provided you are not allergic).
