Is peanut butter okay?

 

Peanuts are actually not a nut, they are technically a legume which makes them not the most Keto-Friendly option.  Peanuts also contain a higher amount of carbohydrates compared to nuts and they contain lectins which can be promote inflammation.

Additionally, most peanut butters have sugar and/or hydrogenated oils added making them even worse for overall health.

Peanut butter is a low carb food, meaning it can be tolerated in moderation on a Keto Diet, however, it is not the best food for overall health.
