If You're a Budget-Minded Health "Nut" (Er, Legume)...
Despite all the new nut butters on the market, it'd be a crime to disregard classic peanut butter. It's delicious, goes amazingly well with everything from strawberry jam to dark chocolate, and is actually pretty nutritious. It's higher in protein than almond, cashew, hazelnut or sunflower seed butter; and is a great source of monounsaturated healthy fats. Best of all: It's widely available and wallet-friendly. For the most nutritious bang for your buck, look for peanut butters that contain only two ingredients: peanuts and salt.
