Peanut Butter Apocalypse

If the world were to end tomorrow, I would spend that day eating peanut butter. Crunchy, creamy, Peter Pan, generic, organic, mixed with nutella, mixed with honey, I would do it all! If I do say so myself, this is a pretty bold statement. Nevertheless it is the absolute truth! I came upon this epiphany today as I was studying in the library, munching on a bagel smeared with the lovely creaminess that I call peanut butter.

Why is peanut butter amazing?

Well, first of all the taste. I mean, hello? It's peanut butter :)

It also is a powerful source of protein, which means that it will keep me filled throughout my Abnormal Psychology lecture, Motivation (yes that's a class) lecture, and a visit to the library for some necessary but dreadful homework.

I also found an article on peanut butter stating that the people who eat peanut butter regularly on average have lower risks in developing cardiovascular diseases and have a lower count of LDL cholesterol. Which is slightly awesome, if not amazing. A healthier heart means more power to love.

Peanut butter is also very versatile. From peanut butter and jelly to peanut butter and graham crackers. The creamy spread goes with so many common household food items. A friend of mine puts a spoonful of peanut butter at the bottom of her cereal bowl, pours in some cheerios and milk, and tops it all off with a banana. The result? A delicious little surprise at the bottom of her cereal bowl that starts her day off with energy (I have never seen her without a smile on her face or a pep in her step, I owe this all to her peanut butter love!)

The benefits of peanut butter are truly endless!

 I have to tell you though, I am only in it for the taste :)

    I went through this phase way back in the day when I would put peanut butter on popsicle sticks and then freeze it. It was slightly weird but good!
