It’s Friday, so its time for another food fight! Every Friday we look at an ingredient, a decision or a process within the real foods sphere. This week we are going to look at if you should buy peanut butter organic, conventional or natural and why.
We love peanut butter and use it in a variety of dishes. Check out our recipes for Peanut Butter and Molasses Pancake Sauce, Peanut Butter Balls, and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. Maybe you’d like Peanut Butter Fudge, Peanut Butter Blondies, and Three-Minute Peanut Butter Ice Cream. All are real food and real delicious, and some even contain hidden fruits and veggies!
Friday Food Fights
Food Fights might be as simple as why you should choose sea salt over iodized salt. It might be more complex, such as what soaking is, how to soak and why you’d want to do it. Grass-fed vs grain-fed. Pastured vs cage-free eggs.
What if I can’t afford the best, what’s the next best alternative? All of those decisions that are out in the real food world that are enough to make your head swirl. We’ll take it one bite at a time. Information is always easier to digest when it’s in small pieces.
We’ll start with the easier and move to the complex. As always, we will do so in a good, better, best format, with an eye on the budget. Some weeks, it will be a blog post, other weeks a video.
In last week’s food fight, a couple of readers asked about peanut butter. Is it something that should be purchased organic or are the natural peanut butters on the market ok? So in this week’s food fight, we’re going to answer that question. Next week, we’ll cover organic versus non-organic sucanat/rapadura.

Have you covered Peanut Butter before? I usually get the Smucker’s natural peanut butter because of the ingredients (peanuts & salt) but it is not Organic. I have wondered if it is necessary to purchae Organic peanut butter though? Any thoughts on this? ~Debra
