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).”
