peanut butter sandwich

Hey everyone,

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but does a peanut butter sandwich (just peanut butter on whole wheat bread) contain all the amino acids required for muscle growth? I′ve read that if you combine legumes with cereals you cover all your protein needs, but I was thinking that perhaps there isn′t enough peanuts in a spread of peanut butter to give you everything you need.

Any help appreciated,

jim

glass of milk to wash it down will do the trick

It′s not what you do in one meal that matters for amino acids, but what you do all day. You can have one meal that has an incomplete AA profile, but as long as you have a couple of other meals with complete AAs, you′ll be fine. I wouldn′t sweat it as long as you′re not just eating peanut butter sandwiches all day.

Yeah, I usually have some sort of dairy product with that. Maybe some yogurt, cottage cheese, or milk. Low fat. Works good on a cut if you spread the butter thin. But I never tried on a bulk. Also try natural almond butter and cashew butter. Good stuff!
