If You Love Peanut Butter…

by healthyhitsthespot on January 15, 2014 · 14 comments

Good afternoon everyone! As I’m typing this, my computers internal fan is going nuts. Eeek. I also just realized that I’ve had it for 8 years this year. Please Apple, don’t give up on me!

Tuesday

Yesterday morning started off with an early breakfast at 6:45.

2 eggs, sourdough toast (2 small pieces because I love the small ones at the end) and 1 piece of chicken sausage.

After breakfast, I had quiet time (readers, I will blog all about my QT & how it goes in the next week), got ready, and met my friend Tiff for Coffee. Actually, more like tea :) I got a small Matcha Tea Latte with soy milk. I asked for it unsweetened so I could add my own swirl of honey. It was so good!

I want to buy some Matcha but it’s so darn expensive! Good Matcha’s? Anyone know?

For lunch around 1:00 I had an open-faced pesto turkey sandwich on Ezekiel. It was so good!

It had: slightly toasted Ezekiel, pesto, sliced tomato, a little bit of sliced onion, a few pickle slices, turkey, and iceberg on top for extra crunch

I also had salad on the side with a clean caesar dressing I found at TJ’s

When I woke Marco up in the afternoon I spotted his big ol’ box of Protein Bars and saw that he only had one Chocolate Peanut Butter left. At least I only took half ;) I’ll call this my Petite Treat cause let’s be honest… this is just like candy…

Just a little bit later I made my own PB smoothie to satisfy my PB craving. This was so simple, so clean, and so delicious! If you love PB, you’ll love this!

8 oz water

2 frozen bananas

2 tbsp. Organic PB

Only ingredient in your PB should be peanuts…. maybe salt if you’re being really crazy ;) Other PB’s have way too much crap in them

Dinner was had around 7/7:30. It was pesto pasta with tons of mushrooms and a side salad

After dinner, Marco and I signed up for Hulu so we could get our New Girl on! We already finished all of the episodes on Netflix.

We made a big ol’ bowl of popcorn that was shared between Marco, my Dad, and myself. Only ingredients: popcorn, sea-salt, + grapeseed oil, because that’s what we popped it in :)

I love the sugary peanut butter. It’s like crack. I rarely have it though, so it’s fine. My husband likes the straight peanut kind, but the texture is kind of weird to me.

Try out different brands. Some are better than others. I’d say it’s an acquired taste at first, because the name brands (with sugar and hydrogenated oils) are definitely addicting when it’s what you’re used to

I just bought Green Foods Corporation, Organic Matcha Green Tea powder, off iHerb for about $14. I’ve been replacing my morning coffee with it. I do about 1/2c boiling water and 1/2c Unsweetened vanilla almond milk and sweeten it with liquid vanilla stevia. It’s pretty yummy!

That’s awesome Shannon! TeaLeaves just sent me some to try, so I’ll definitely be posting on how I like it. It’s $52, but chefs around the world are using it. It’s supposed to taste incredible!

I love peanut butter too strongly! I always do the house – only a peanut and anything else (all because in Russia not to find organic peanut butter in shop)

Okay, and I’ll let you know on the blog how the TeaLeaves is. Pricey, but supposed to be the best. And I like my Matcha to be high quality because of the benefits :)

I make my own peanut butter at home in my ninja. Ingredients are unsalted peanuts,that is it! My kids and husband are hooked it is much better than all of the processed peanut and nut butters out there.
