Packed full of vitamin B, vitamin E, magnesium, protein, zinc, and other nutrients, peanuts definitely pack a punch. Studies show that peanuts can help reduce the risk of diabetes, gallbladder, and heart disease. In fact, peanuts have shown to reduce high cholesterol as well.
For National Peanut Month, consider trying more peanut recipes. Here’s a great, 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies recipe from Rachael Ray that we love.
