I still have yet to meet a client who doesn’t love peanut butter (unless of course they’re allergic), and just about all of them are afraid to eat it because they can’t just stop at one spoonful (yes, you’re not the only one who eats it straight out of the jar). As a result many households are peanut butter-less, which in my mind is a sad state of affairs because not only does it taste great but it also provides you with folate, vitamin B3, reservatrol (the same antioxidant that is found in wine which can fight cancer), protein, heart protective fat and fiber. Sure 2 Tablespoons add up to 190-200 calories and 16 grams of fat but put that between two slices of bread and you have a healthy lunch or spread it among two stalks of celery and you have a crunchy satisfying snack. So, the trick with PB is to watch your portions, this way you can enjoy it but you can also enjoy your skinny jeans. So when I came across www.justinsnutbutter.com I simply FREAKED! Portion controlled packets of peanut butter (they carry other nut butters too) that come in two sizes 1 TBSP portion (about 80-90 cals) or 2 TBSP portion (190-200 cals) and they are portable! So you can toss them in your bag, diaper bag, car, gym bag and eat it on the run! You don’t even need a knife to spread it, just tear off the top and squeeze it out (yes directly into your mouth is totally acceptable)! What makes them even better is that they are all natural and some flavors are organic so you don’t have to worry about added yucky ingredients. Justin’s often sends me samples of their new products (a perk of the job) and I must admit their new 90 calorie hazelnut chocolate combo (nutella anyone) is to die for! So where can you find these puppies? Simple, either at Whole Foods or on-line (your best bet) www.justinsnutbutter.com. They are a small company but growing rapidly and are sometimes sold out of certain products so log on now. See you can have your peanut butter and eat it too! enjoy!!
