Peanut butter has multiple health benefits — it has an enviable combination of protein and fibers. The driving factor in this growth is that consumers today are consciously aware of their nutritional intake.
Our lives are packed with multiple routine activities, mainly the athletes, gym-goers, etc and protein intake becomes essential for sustained energy. A 2017 survey shows that 73 percent of Indians are deficient in protein while above 90 percent are unaware of the daily requirement of protein.

“Even eating 2-3 tablespoons of peanut butter can give you 35 percent of daily recommended protein intake,” suggests Anand Patel, Senior Marketing Manager, Das Foodtech Private Ltd. that offers Pintola — a ‘high protein peanut butter’.
Protein today is a major part of many low-carb diets. If a workout is a part of one’s weight loss plan, then building and repairing of muscle post-workout is equally important, he says.
“Peanuts are considered a good source of protein by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), providing 7g of high-quality, plant-based protein to your diet in just one ounce (or about 30-40 pieces).”
One can add peanut butter in their morning smoothie with a handful of oats or berries, to a peanut butter sandwich or healthy no-bake peanut butter and muesli cookies, etc, he suggests.
“Peanut butter can help in weight loss, but the key is to have it in moderation because it is extremely high in calorie count,” he emphasizes.
“While peanut butter’s macronutrient ratio fits one’s low carb diet perfectly, beginners who have just started living the healthy lifestyle should make it a priority to measure their peanut butter consumption to avoid overeating.”
A daily serving of peanut butter or peanut powder can have positive effects to help you toward your health goals, and can be the absolute snack for people venturing on the ketogenic journey, he concludes. (IANS/KR)
Today marks the 114th birth anniversary of Harivansh Rai Bachchan, a renowned Indian poet. He is popularly known for his poem ‘Madhushala’.
Early life of Harivansh Rai Bachchan
Harivansh Rai Bachchan was born on the same date in 1907 in the village of Bahupatti, United Provinces of Agra and Oudh in British India. From the year 1941 to 1957, he taught English at the Allahabad University, and after that, Bachchan spent the next two years at St. Catharine’s College, Cambridge, completing his PhD W.B. Yeats. Interestingly, when Harivansh Rai started writing, instead of using his real surname, Shrivastava, he started using Bachchan.
Career of Harivansh Rai Bachchan
It must be noted that Harivansh Rai Bachchan was well fluent in many languages including Hindustani and Awadhi. Though, Bachchan did not know how to read Persian script, still he was very much influenced by Persian and Urdu poetry. Omar Khayyam was one such personality who influenced Bachchan big time. Some of the most celebrated works of this stalwart are Madhushala (1935-36), Agneepath, Khadi Ke Phool (1948), Dhaar Ke Idhar Udhar (1957), Jal Sameta (1973), etc. Bachchan was awarded with the esteemed Padma Bhushan in the year 1976.

The new master plan extends from the Ring Road with proposed industrial corridors along both sides. Around 114 development projects approved by the state government have been incorporated in the master plan.
Amid construction of the Ram temple, Ayodhya is undergoing a makeover with modern infrastructure and facilities. The town soon will have grand gates called 'Ram Dwaars' at all entry points along with gardens with invoking the ambience of 'Treta Yug'.
