Standard Peanut Butter
Peanut butter can be a great health food as it's filled with protein and healthy fats, but it can also be transformed into something so bad for your health. Turn around your peanut butter jar and read the ingredients from beginning to end. The first ingredient should always be peanuts. The only other ingredient should be salt. A lot of peanut butters you find on the shelf are filled with corn syrup solids, sugar, and hydrogenated oils.
"Non-natural peanut butters can have small amounts of trans fats," Jim White, RD, ACSM, owner of Jim White Fitness and Nutrition Studios, tells POPSUGAR. These refined fats and sugars found in jars of peanut butter you probably consumed heavily as a kid may deliver you protein but are also delivering a bunch of processed ingredients you're better off without. Next time, look for a peanut butter jar with minimal ingredients.
