TODAY I’M MAKING:
I’ve barely had time to shop for gifts, so I’m taking care of my Christmas gifts by preparing and packaging these goodies for friends and family. I think these would also make great gifts for teachers, hair dressers, babysitters or if you’re headed to a Holiday party, this would be a great gift for the party host!
Giving the gift of peanuts also provides a great source of nutrition. Here’s why:
- Peanuts are a superfood! 1 ounce of peanuts provides 7 grams of plant-based protein and heart healthy nutrients that can keep you healthy under pressure this Holiday season.
- Peanuts are affordable and portable. I love peanuts because they make giving the gift of nutrition more affordable and portable. If you’ve shopped for nuts recently, you know that they vary in price and quality. But with peanuts, I know that I’m getting a great nutrient rich snack without overspending. And as I’ve been finishing up the semester with teaching, I’ve had to rely on healthy snacks like peanuts to fill me up until I can eat a real meal!
- Peanuts are a great snack to keep you satisfied longer. I believe choosing nutrient rich snacks especially during the Holiday season is important when temptation is around every corner! With 2.5 grams of fiber per serving, peanuts are packed with fiber to promote fullness and better digestion.
