Peanuts an excellent source of protein
Peanuts are actually a legume, not a nut and as such are related to beans and lentils. And just like their cousins, peanuts provide an excellent source of protein. Peanuts provide 7-9 grams of protein per ounce. Peanuts also seem to help keep people lean. Studies have shown those who eat peanuts twice a week are over 30 percent less likely to gain unwanted weight than those who don’t eat any at all. Doing peanut butter? Pick a natural source that just contains peanuts and salt.
Whether your goal is weight loss or better overall health, there are some convincing arguments for including peanuts in your diet on a nearly daily basis.
