Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Native to South America, peanuts have made their way through the American diet and are among the most abundantly grown crop. A serving, which is 2 tablespoons, is 188 calories, 7.7 g of protein, which helps keep your tissues strong and promotes immune function, as well as 16 g of fat, a concentrated source of energy. Be mindful that some brands contain additives (e.g. sugar) that can lower the nutritional value of food. It's best to opt for 'natural' brands that are minimally processed and do not contain (partially) hydrogenated oils. Chia seeds are a great alternative to processed grains, such as white bread, since they are a boost in fiber-10 g in only 2 T, protein, calcium, antioxidants and omega 3s, specifically they are one of the richest plant based sources of alpha linoleic acid, aiding in the reudction of inflammation, high cholesterol, as well as enhancing cognitive performance.
