Are you a peanut butter freak like I am?

I realized yesterday that I didn’t eat any peanut butter at all?  WHAT, THAT”S CRAZY!?

So what did I do?  Of course after dinner I had to eat some straight from the Jar. And yes, I went back for a second scoop 🙂

Lily stared me DOWN while I ate it.  Whose dog doesn’t love peanut butter!

 I think they like it more than humans.  She looks kind of angry actually.


I like Smart Balance Peanut Butter because it tastes great and:

Deep-roasted peanuts for extra flavor

Here are some fun recipes for those peanut butter freaks out there:

Microwaveable Peanut Butter Cookie For One

Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal

Healthy Apple Nachos

I never even used to eat peanut butter, and I stayed clear away when I was a kid…Now I love it.

Yesterday’s Breakfast:

Scrambled eggs before I drove to work. (I’ve been eating the heck out of some eggs lately)

At work I had plain oatmeal with stevia, and cinnamon.  Topped with blackberries and walnuts. This was a good one!



My snacks were not that fun …

Beverly International protein shake with some almonds.

Fresh broccoli with yogurt ranch dip, and a granola energy ball (which I am now out of.. tear)  😦



An apple on the way home to hold me over until dinner.


I was supposed to go to crossfit but I didn’t get out of work on time…plus I can barely walk normal since my legs are so sore from the snatches yesterday!  So I took the day off, much-needed.


I snacked on some crab n spinach dip with carrots while I decided on what I should eat…By the time I actually made my dinner I wasn’t even that hungry anymore.  O well I could still eat!

After dinner I had some plain Greek yogurt, which I just cannot get myself to like!

I even topped it with berries,  nuts, and a little honey….

I still wasn’t a fan.. Maybe if I keep trying it I will learn to love it.  I ate about half and couldn’t finish the rest, sad.

I went to bed feeling a little frustrated because I felt like I ate way to much right before bed…

Oh well, I guess it happens and I try not to worry about it too much.  I know I am not going to gain a fat roll over night  😉

Does this ever happen to you? 

Whats your favorite flavor of Greek yogurt?

Do your pets love peanut butter?
