YES! This is for you if you are below a healthy weight, putting on pounds can prove difficult. A common -- and wise -- tip for gaining weight is to eat calorie-dense foods that provide a large amount of nutrients in small servings. At 90 calories per tablespoon, peanut butter is an ideal candidate. To gain weight with peanut butter, look for every opportunity to fit it into your diet.
Incorporating just 1 tablespoon of peanut butter per meal, on a six-meal-a-day diet, adds over 500 calories to your daily caloric intake. Mix peanut butter in hot cereals, spread it on fruits, vegetables and crackers, slather it on toast or sandwiches or eat a spoonful after your meal. Do not eat more than six servings of peanut butter per day to avoid consuming unhealthy amounts of fat.
Having smoothiesis is an easy way to sneak in more weight gain before or after your meals. Make smoothies with fresh fruits or vegetables, a bit of frozen yogurt or ice and a dollop of peanut butter for a nutrient-rich drink.
Peanut Butter Alternatives: Although peanut butter is a good choice for weight gain, experiment with other nut butters -- or nut butter blends made from multiple types of nuts -- for flavor and nutritional variety. Almond and cashew butters have approximately the same number of calories as peanut butter. Almond butter offers more bone-strengthening calcium, while cashew butter has a little more brain building omega-3 fatty acids. Cashew butter is lower in protein though, with just 4 grams per 2-tablespoon serving. Use these nut butters to add calories in the same way you'd use peanut butter.
