Thanks to CleverGirls and Planters Peanuts for sponsoring this post on the Power of the Peanut. I apologize if you have a peanut allergy, this is not for you.
My husband travels a lot and does not care to eat at the airport. However, this also causes him to miss meals and then get a snack that does not provide any nutrients just empty calories. I have been trying to tell him to enjoy the gift of nature and grab a bag of peack some from home. .
I am not sure how he can go the whole day without eating. I get light-headed and know I need something or I will get crabby. Here he is taking up to 4 flights a day, meeting with clients and being called on his cell phone for answers without any nutrients?
Did you really know the power of the peanut? Check out this new campaign from Planters to learn just what nature has to offer in this small but mighty snack. Have you seen any of the Powerofthepeanut.com new videos out there? You need to check this one out in particular, A Gift from Nature Two perfect halves, in it for the long haul.
I have viewed some criticism from the video, like why would a peanut( you know Mr. Peanut with the hat) encourage you to eat peanuts. Sort of like a particular chicken restaurant that uses a cow as their mascot. I am not sure what a peanut’s counterpart would be? Do you have any ideas?
But really this campaign is really about what a big impact a small little peanut can give to you and best of all it is not processed but a gift from nature. If I have a big workout or come of the tennis courts and it is not quite time for a meal, I am going to start grabbing a handful of peanuts because I know this is not empty calories but calories that will keep me going and provide my body with nutrients my body needs.
SO next time you pass the nut aisle at the grocery store, think of the Planter’s Peanut Spokesperson, and “get wholesome” and remember the best food comes from Nature.
