I eat PB2. It's a powdered peanut butter. I reconstitute with water or sugar free torani flavored syrups...YUM!

I really love PB and peanuts. I think of them as my "treat" and if I make it non-taboo, them I don't feel deprived. I usually stick with the creamy store brand b/c I'm not picky. I've tried the PB&Co flavors and they are good. I like Better 'n' PB, but its not what you would expect. The texture and flavor are different, but its half the calories (and protein). Its expensive, so I don't buy it. Naturally More used to be good, but I don't like the seeds they added to the recipe. Tastes weird. It has more protein, which is good, but the taste has gone downhill.

Yes, I do. I used to use Peter Pan until I found out the second ingredient was sugar.

I now use the natural kind. Mostly right now it is Crazy Richard creamy.

I put Peter Pan Crunchy Peanut Butter in my oatmeal every morning. You do have to watch your portions. If you can control your portions I see nothing wrong with having Peanut Butter.

I have used the powdered PB and the chocolate flavored PB before. It was okay in smoothies, but I prefer the real thing.

Natural, organic and unsalted. Peanuts are the only ingredient; you have to stir it but it's worth it.

1/22/12 9:49 A

Yes. Mostly skippy creamy because I can buy it in a big, cheap tub at costco, but I also like Bee's Knees peanut butter - it's more natural, and it has a little dash of honey in it. I use a tablespoon of peanut butter in my breakfast smoothie every morning, and I'll occasionally have a pb&j on wheat bread for lunch.

I don't believe that there are any foods that need to be off limits - you just have to be mindful of how you use them.

1/22/12 9:32 A

Gave up nut butters because I just couldn't control my portions AND I've learned that there are many different types of nuts/seeds that provide some awesome nutrient values!

Flaxseeds: Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Fiber, Magnesium
Soy nuts (which are actually soy beans!) : Vitamin K, Iron, Omega-3/6 Fatty Acids, Good Protein Source
Almonds: Vitamin E
Walnuts: Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Pumpkin Seeds: Magnesium, Iron
Sesame Seeds: CALCIUM, Iron, Fiber

So I just mix them into pastas, salads, stir fry...sprinkle some sesame or flaxseeds on eggs in the morning.

If I have a craving for pb I make my own..grinding up any of these nuts adding a lil bit of splenda and a little bit of oil to make it semi-pasty.

I used to use the fat reduced, but then figured out it has a lot of sweetening (like corn syrup), so I switched back to regular. I have PB about once a week. I always measure it and have between one tsp and two tablespoons.

I have one friend who lost 100 pounds and the main change she made in her life was to give up peanut butter. So, I'm careful with it.

I'm sure the health food store version is better for you, but I find it doesn't last and I end up wasting most of it or overeating it. I have not tried the PB2, low fat version, but might next time I'm trying to lose a pound or two. On maintenance I think regular in moderation is best.

I eat peanut butter at least a couple of times a week --- usually at breakfast time instead of regular butter --- and I carefully measure how much --- and now can get away with less than 1 tablespoon for an entire English muffin (that's half of what is considered a serving size, but still a whoppping 95 calories, but I feel the extra protein --- and the good fat make it worth it).

Never- not enough to enjoy it in or on anything in moderation.. I like essential fat on my bread and to stir fry my meals- there is simply too little daily allowance to have peanut butter as a treat.
Nutella and peanutbutter is over kill too- so many hidden calories in so little food doesn't fill people up..

Skippy creamy. Sometimes I'll just eat a spoonful of it, otherwise I'll eat it on toast or as a sandwich with butter or grape jelly.
