    Confession: I can eat a bung-load of peanut butter.

    {That’s code for a whole lot}


    It’s true.  That delicious tasting spread is like smooth goodness in my mouth & tummy.  I LOVE it.  I like chunky, but I prefer smooth and although I buy the healthier version, Adam’s Natural, peanut butter is not easy on my body or the number on my scale at weigh in day.


    It’s a great source of fat and a decent source of protein, sure.  But just 2 small Tablespoons packs a big punch.  210 calories, 17 grams fat, 6 grams carbs, and 7 grams protein.


    In phase one-fat burning-of Take Shape for Life, I can have one extra snack a day in addition to my 5 Medifast and 1 lean & green meals.  One of my options is 1 tablespoon of peanut butter.  Turns out that doesn’t get me too far.  I’m often left wanting more…and on rare {read: frequent} occasions, find myself eating more than a tablespoon…Like three or four.


    Needless to say, I like the stuff.  And it hasn’t been helping me reach my goals.  I desperately wanted another option.  I could give it up for good-because I’m all or nothing-but I didn’t really want to have to.  Finally, a friend mentioned something on Twitter that sparked my interest.

    PB2.  Powdered Peanut Butter.


    Say what??  Of course I was skeptical.  It’s powder, after all.  But I read reviews and talked to lots of friends who’ve tried it and LOVED it.  The common consensus seemed to be positive.  The only place near me that sold it was over an hour away and it took me about a week before I could pick up a jar.  I was excited, but still a skeptic.  The nutrition facts were this: 2 Tablespoons gives you 45 calories, 1.5 g. fat, 5 g. carbs, and 5 g. protein.  WOW!


    I tried it and have to admit mixing a powdery substance with water and seeing it become peanut butter was a bit weird at first.  But then I tasted it.  And it was DELICIOUS.  I was sold.  The regular version is my favorite, but the chocolate is tasty, too.  It’s not that chocolatey, if truth be told. I ordered a case of 12 the very next day through a great site called Netrition.  They have great prices & cheap shipping-especially if you pair it with other items like yummy coconut oil!


    I am a definite PB2 convert.  Love the stuff.  Use it every day.  And, to be able to have 2 Tablespoons for half the calories in 1 Tablespoon of the regular stuff?  Totally worth it.  Complete no brainer.  I like it by itself as a snack {with 1 packet splenda added}, but my very favorite thing to do is to add 2 T. to my medifast brownie and microwave it as directed.  Top with 1-2 T. fat free spray whipped cream {5 calories} & it is like pure perfection in my mouth.  Try it & let me know what you think!

    What about putting it into a medifast shake. I have been putting 1 T of Adams into my chocolate Medifast shakes sometimes and it’s great. I too love peanut butter I could seriously eat PB&J sandwhiches everyday for lunch.
