Today is that special time of year when Marines put down their crayons and enjoy their second favorite meal. Peanut Butter! It's national peanut butter day and we couldn't be happier here at American Grit. Our Marines and soldiers alike have brought in tubs and tubs of peanut butter so they can chow down throughout the workday.Unless you have a severe peanut allergy (in which case DO NOT ENJOY NATIONAL PEANUT BUTTER DAY) peanut butter is one of those things that's not really a condiment, not really a meal on it's own, it's spreadable, but you can also eat it straight from the jar, or make great sandwiches with it (you can use jelly or do that cool thing why syrup and peanut butter). Peanut butter is far and away one of the most versatile foods on this entire God's green earth!

For something so simple, you'd think it'd be super unhealthy, but it's actually not too bad for you as long as you're staying active and exercising. In fact, many athletes and bodybuilders utilize peanut butter in their protein shakes before and after a hard workout. An average serving of peanut butter has six grams of carbohydrates and eight grams of protein, with 188 calories. These nutrients help the body recover from or prepare for intense activity when combined with a normal protein shake.What else is great about peanut butter? We're glad you asked. Have you ever heard of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups? Without peanut butter, they wouldn't exist and quite frankly that's a scary world you're asking us to live in.

National Peanut Butter Day

In 1895 Kellogg brothers refined the process of making the creamy goodness that is peanut butter today. Shortly after Dr. George Washington Carver discovered more than 300 other uses for peanuts. Take a moment today and enjoy a classic old-fashioned PB&J sandwich or eat it by the spoonful, either way, enjoy National Peanut Butter Day!
