You see, a study published in JAMA Pediatrics suggests mothers-to-be who enjoyed a peanut-rich diet had children with significantly lower allergy levels. As long as the mother isn't allergic to nuts, she can safely eat them throughout her pregnancy (and yes, I know that the peanut is a legume, but it has the word nut in it, so I am grouping it in with all the other nuts.)
So moms-to-be, go ahead and have that handful of almonds, that macadamia nut cookie or even dip that celery stick into the peanut butter jar. It's good for you and your baby.
Anyone have any good peanut butter recipes? My husband thinks peanut butter is an ingredient and not a meal on its own, so please share them with me in the comments.
