Hello Keto Friends; we've got a real treat of a blog for you today, as we’re going to be covering something a great many of you will likely have enjoyed as a pub-crawl nibble in the past; Peanuts. Specifically, we will be covering the benefits they offer on a Keto Diet, how incredibly versatile they are as a foodstuff.
First, the health benefits: Peanuts are incredibly high in protein, the amount of which alone counts for anywhere between 22% to 30% of ones recommended calorie intake. They are also incredibly rich in fibre and various antioxidants, which will help promote general bodily health and regularity- in fact, Peanuts have been linked to reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and can, in a balanced diet, help with weight loss. They are also loaded with both mono unsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, which promote healthy bodily growth and are absolutely guaranteed to help keep you energised throughout the day.
Their versatility is what makes them truly appealing, of course. Firstly, they can be enjoyed as a tasty snack in of themselves, something you can pick at for a quick pick me up. However, they can also be used as both a sweet and a savoury accompaniment or base for a sauce- for example, you can chop them up and mix them into salads, or you can pair them off with/coat with low carb dark chocolate with a high cacao content. You can also use them to make home made peanut butter, and you can use them to create Satay dressing or marinades for chicken or other meats. We are preparing a couple of recipes for you to follow that will be arriving next week, as a matter of fact, so keep your eyes out for that!
