How to Cut 31 Grams of Saturated Fat from Your Diet
6. Spread Peanut Butter, not Cream Cheese
Peanut butter and cream cheese are both tasty additions to a piece of toast or a bagel. But choosing peanut butter over cream cheese will save you 3 grams of saturated fat: 2 tablespoons peanut butter contains 2.5 grams saturated fat while 2 tablespoons cream cheese has 5.5 grams.
