A healthy morning will ensure an equally healthy and energetic day ahead. Which is why, having a nutritious breakfast is very important.

But there is one component which can ensure you begin your day on a healthy note — peanut butter!

According to Chetan Kanani, co-founder of Alpino Health Foods, “Peanut butter is one of the most-popular protein-rich food items available today. If you are wondering how to choose the right variety, you must ensure that the product is free of trans-fat and added sugar”.
