Nourishment Notes

Peanut Butter

Rich in healthy monounsaturated fats, peanut butter provides an ample number of calories as well as antioxidants, like vitamin E.

Old Fashioned Oats

Oats provide beta-glucan, a type of soluble fiber that may boost the immune system.


Flaxseed is relatively high in calories and omega-3 fatty acids. These types of fats are helpful for reducing inflammation in the body. Flaxseed is also rich in dietary fiber.
