Low Fat Peanut Butter…a new food addiction.

on March 9, 2012

So I may be late in finding this amazing low fat peanut butter, but I had been reading some weight loss forums and heard a lot of buzz. What am I talking about? No, not “Better n’ Peanut Butter”…this is better than “Better n’ Peanut Butter”!!!

I am talking about PB2 people!!!

PB2 is powdered peanut butter (made by Bell Plantation www.bellplantation.com) that is all natural with no preservatives and no chemicals to make it reduced fat. The process used to make PB2 removes 85% of  the fat calories. Just scoop out two tablespoons and add about a tablespoon of water (I usually add a tad bit more to make it creamier), mix it up and *POOF* you’ve got delicious peanut butter.

Now, for those of you who are used to the regular peanut butter you get at the grocery store (i.e. Jif, Skippy, etc.) this will not taste like that. Instead it will taste purely like peanuts! A few years back I had purchased peanut butter at a local farmer’s market and I fell in love with it…of course it had a ton of oil in it, but nothing else, no sugar, preservatives or chemicals. It just tasted so NATURAL! And PB2 tastes exactly the same as all natural peanut butter, just without the oil, so it has a bit of a different texture. They also sell a chocolate PB2, but not sure if that really will taste as good as it sounds…if I ever get adventurous maybe I’ll try it out!

All in all, this stuff is definitely the best reduced fat peanut butter I have tried…EVER…and believe me I’ve tried em’ all. Some more good news….for those Weight Watchers users out there 2 tbsps. of PB2 is only 1 point! Compare that to regular peanut butter (2 tbsp = 5 points!) and reduced fat peanut butter (2 tbsp = 5 points) and you can see how truly amazing this is!

It is rare that I get excited about a healthy food, but when I do…look out. After I lose my remaining 36 lbs (and I’m done dieting….I think I just like to say diet because you’re not supposed to!) PB2 will defitely be coming with me on my next journey to eat healthy. Get it…first I diet to lose this weight than I take what I’ve learned and start eating healthy and natural.

I will leave you with this photo of my delicious breakfast (Fiber One English Muffin with 2 tablespoons of PB2). And I highly recommend you get on the internet and order this stuff….like right now!!
