Quick Tip: Peanut butter

Recent studies have turned peanut butter into a health food by showing that peanut products can actually lower your LDL or “bad” cholesterol as effectively as olive oil. But go for the old-fashioned or “natural” kind.

Other brands that use partially hydrogenated oils to give their butters a creamy consistency and keep the oil from separating can raise your cholesterol. Other nut butters are equally as good so try almond and cashew nut butter.
