In honor of it A) Being a weekend, B)Being the weekend before Valentine's Day and C)Being 10 pounds from Two-ville (below 300lbs.), I am going to share a new find with you! I know you are jumping up and down, screaming from the rooftop, crap your pants happy about this but try to contain your excitement until you see the nutritional info cause...it gets friggin better! Are you ready...I mean can you really handle the excitement? Here it is...POWDERED PEANUT BUTTER!
Hmmm doesn't sound great does it? Just keep an open mind, because that is exactly what I had to do when I saw it in the health food store. It is an all natural, no chemicals, powdered peanut butter. They literally remove the oil from the peanut, which in turn removes about 85% of the fat. All you have to do is add water. I feel like an astronaut just saying that you need to "just add water" to get the creamy full effect, but it's true. Bonus...they also make a chocolate version. If you are counting calories or looking for a low calorie, low fat, more natural way to get in some good protein, here you have it.
It must taste like completely dry doo-doo right? Nooooo, this stuff is for reals for real. Although it sounds like I jest, it is really delicious or I wouldn't be inclined to share. First, let's talk nutritional comparison...
|Total Fat||17 g||Potassium||0 mg|
|Saturated||3 g||Total Carbs||6 g|
|Polyunsaturated||2 g||Dietary Fiber||2 g|
|Monounsaturated||2 g||Sugars||2 g|
|Trans||0 g||Protein||8 g|
Hugeeeeee difference! Also, I haven't even mixed it with water to make a creamy PB. I have simply added it to my Valentine's gift from Evan to make a delicious snack/meal replacement:
|Serving Size 2 tbsp (12g)|
|Amount Per Serving|
Calories from Fat 13
|% Daily Values*|
|Total Fat 1.5g||2%|
|Saturated Fat 0g||0%|
|Trans Fat 0.01g|
|Total Carbohydrate 5g||2%|
|Dietary Fiber 2g||8%|
Use 1 scoop of the chocolate truffle Nectar protein powder and add in 1/2 banana, some milk or light yogurt and 2 TB of the PB2 (I used the chocolate PB2) and you have yourself a yummy tummy approx. 200 calorie, 1 gram of fat and approx. 30 grams of protein snack/meal. Plus it doesn't have a long ingredient list with all the stuff you can't pronounce. It is simply guilt-free, god-damn goodness in a glass! And that's all I got. Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
