Depends: If the amount of peanut butter you eat is part of an overall balance in your diet, then it is a good source of proper oils and protein. Be mindful that some peanut butters are adulterated with oils from other sources so read the labels carefully. The addition of sprouted grain bread and fruits can help achieve balance and is a good dietary practice.
