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:
All-natural, peanut butter
Deep-roasted peanuts for extra flavor
No hydrogenated oil
No partially hydrogenated oil
0g trans fat
Excellent source of Omega-3 ALA
(320 mg per serving, 20% of 1,600mg daily value)
7g of protein per serving
Here are some fun recipes for those peanut butter freaks out there:
I never even used to eat peanut butter, and I stayed clear away when I was a kid…Now I love it.
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!
Grilled turkey and bacon wrap on low carb tortilla
Inside: spinach, laughing cow cinnamon cream cheese, tomato, and chopped hard-boiled egg
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?
