Did you know that peanuts and peanut butter are low glycemic index foods? It's due to their high amounts of healthy oils, fiber and protein that help sugar to be released into the blood stream more slowly, keeping energy levels high and appetite in check.
When eaten in small amounts daily, peanuts and peanut butter can keep you satisfied from one meal to the next. Recent research from Purdue University showed that when peanuts or peanut butter were consumed for breakfast with a whole grain, they can help control appetite for up to 8-12 hours later. Peanuts and peanut butter also helped maintain even blood sugar throughout the day, preventing blood sugar spikes which can affect appetite and energy levels.

Others have tried-and-true game day recipes. For instance, I’ve never been to a South Carolina game without Bob and Janet Keen’s Lil’ Smokies pig-n-the-blankets. It just wouldn’t be the same.

Nestled in the heart of Bluffton, Belfair Plantation sits quietly off the highway eluding to scenic views and beautiful homes. The graceful entrance bids the viewer a taste of the charm that lies within.

Salad is usually an accompaniment. But what if you turn the tables and make it the star of the meal? The beginning of summer is the perfect time for such a light and refreshing option.
Many of us have participated in wine tastings. For a fun and equally informative change of pace, why not a lettuce tasting? A rut often accompanies lettuce—many diners eat the same one repeatedly.
