For a quick and nutritious breakfast that will keep you (and the kids) going all morning, spread a whole grain waffle, bagel, English muffin or piece of toast with a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter. Unlike butter, jelly, or cream cheese, peanut butter is loaded up with plenty of protein, fiber, and healthy fats. Top with a sliced banana or a small handful of raisins--or grab a piece of fresh fruit to eat on the side--and you have a complete, well-balanced breakfast that will keep you satisfied, energized, and focused. Creamy or crunchy, it doesn't matter--but you want to choose a brand with a minimum of added sugar and salt. Look for peanut butter with no more than 2 grams of sugar and 100 mg of sodium per serving.

Then came the commercial invention of peanut butter in the 1920s, and shortly after that baking companies such as Pillsbury began publishing recipes for peanut butter ball cookies. A star was born.

When I was pregnant with my older daughter, all I wanted was peanut butter. It was a sudden, overwhelming need to slather tubs of the stuff on anything that came my way -- most notably the oodles of leftover chocolate mousse wedding sheet-cake that took up most of my freezer.
