Dr. Oz: Benefits of Peanuts
Dr. Oz talked about benefits of peanuts on his show. Peanuts can lower the risk of heart disease and Dr. Oz said we should eat 20 peanuts at least three times a week. The easiest way is to add peanut butter to your diet. That’s right: Dr. Oz is giving the okay to include peanut butter into your diet, so stock up! He even handed bags of peanuts out to his audience members.
Dr. Oz spotlighted a place in New York City called Peanut Butter & Co., which is known for all-natural peanut butter and menu items like peanut butter banana soy milk smoothies, ants on a log, and a sandwich with peanut butter, pineapple, and grilled chicken.
Dr. Oz talked to Chris, a woman who calls herself the Peanut Queen and who grew up on a peanut farm. She shared her Peanut Butter and Strawberry Parfait recipe, which I’ve reproduced below. Enjoy!
