I Love Peanut Butter

I guess I’m on a food kick this week – I feel like talking about products that might assist in weight management efforts, which makes a nice break from my recent exercise posts.

I’m probably the last person to find out about this, but in case I’m not, I thought I’d mention a peanut butter alternative I just discovered. Man, I love peanut butter but it is NOT diet food by any stretch! My friend Allison recently told me about powdered peanut butter, and I finally picked some up – they only seem to sell it at Target and I don’t go there very often. But I did last week, and I grabbed some chocolate PB2 (it was all they had – hey I’m not picky!). You mix it up with water, 2 to 1 (2 tablespoons of PB2 powder and 2 tablespoon of water).pb2

Basically, it’s peanut butter that’s been reduced to powder, most of the fat and oil has been pressed out.

This stuff is amazing. In a 2 tablespoon serving there are 45 calories. For 2 tablespoons of plain old regular peanut butter there are 190(!). That’s a huge win! You can mix it up with any liquid to reconstitute it, however I tend to use boring old water. Then you can eat it straight (uhh, guilty), you can smear it on a banana for an afternoon snack (also guilty), make a sandwich, or you can put the powder in a shake or pudding (mmm…so delicious and peanut buttery!). Whatever you like to do with peanut butter!

I’m a fan!
