Oh yes! Although it maybe high in fat it is a great way to add non-cholesterol protein. It's a satisfying snack with veggies like carrot and celery sticks or even with apple slices. If I don't have anything else around for breakfast I just put it on toast or a bagel. Oh.. and always Jiff creamy style of coarse.

I love peanut butter. A good quality chunky - not too particular about the brand. The only problem is - since I lost weight and cut out a lot of things on my shopping list and in my house - I can't have peanut butter in the house anymore either.. It has become a problem food for me. If I want some in the house, I buy individual servings. Otherwise, I wind up eating half a jar with a spoon.

I am eating Kirkland natural peanut butter now i use it in my greek yogurt or cottage cheese for breakfast

2/2/12 9:53 P

I put unsalted, roasted peanuts into the food processor and make my own peanut butter - it's delicious and does not have added sugar, salt or oil. But you have to be patient processing - it takes a little time... Plan B, is to go to Whole Foods and buy some freshly made peanut butter using their fabulous nut grinders!

No, it's not allowed on the diet I'm on. I found some cashew butter I plan to test out though! And our local independent market has a nut grinder, so I think I'll be trying some other nut butters. Macadamia comes immediately to mind. Pecan? Walnut? Pistachio? hmmmmm

So far as a store brand, I used to (and still) love Jif. Off limits now, though.

I love peanut butter! I use Peanut Butter & Co - Smooth Operator.
It's natural peanut butter with no partially hydrogenated oils. There is 15g of fat per serving which may be kind of high to some people, but just enjoy it in moderation -- every healthy diet needs a little fat!

I use Smucker's Natural. Last time I went to the store, it looked like the cheapest option that was "ground nuts with a touch of salt." I looked at other natural peanut butters, but they had foreign oils and added sugar.

Most of the time, I'm stirring it into something that involves chicken, tomato, and/or hot sauce.

Any peanut butter that doesn't require stirring or refrigeration after opening has saturated fat added to it. Hydrogenated vegetable oil is the usual saturated fat but now we know that the trans fats in hydrogenated vegetable oil are bad for us; worse than butter, tallow, and lard in fact. Anyone who eats the old fashion style of peanut butter that requires stirring and refrigeration knows what a hassle it is. The peanut butter on the bottom turns to sludge and stirring the oil on top into the almost solid peanut butter on the bottom is a workout! Once stirred keeping it refrigerated both keeps it from going rancid and keeps it from separating. "Natural" peanut butters (do any peanut butters exist in nature?) that do not require stirring use palm oil as its saturated fat to stabilize the peanut butter. Palm oil is naturally saturated so it does not need to be hydrogenated to make it more saturated. Most people do not consider palm oil to be a health food but it is probably much healthier than hydrogenated vegetable oil. Better still is the old fashion stir and refrigerated peanut butter.

I use generic Walmart smooth peanut butter. They've just put out a no-stir natural p.b. but it doesn't really look any healthier than the other stuff.

I'm addicted to peanut butter. It gets eaten more with a spoon than it does spread on things for me. I get mine from a company called All Natural Peanut Butter & Co. They have different flavour combinations in their peanut butter, most of which I always have at my house.
White Chocolate Wonderful, Dark Chocolate Dreams, Mighty Maple, Bee's Knees (Honey), Cinnamon Raisin Swirl, The Heat Is On (Spicy), Smooth Operator (Regular smooth). I used to eat Kraft Extra Creamy until I discovered this lovely company. Their's is more expensive, but worth it.

I never use to eat much peanut butter, until I decided to cut back on sugary foods, replacing jams with the nutty spread.
At first, the more processed smooth kind was okay to eat. That's until I started spending time on sparkpeople. Natural peanut butter was mentioned quite often, so I thought I'd give it a try. Off to the supermarket I went and brought some Sanitarium natural crunchy peanut butter. It's 100% peanuts, isn't too expensive for my budget & is now my preferred kind of peanut butter.
I like it spread on bread/toast or mixed in with my morning porridge.

Also, thanks to sparkpeople, I discovered other foods like greek yoghurt, LSA and lentils :)

I can't eat peanut butter... it's a major culprit of my weight gain. I absolutely love it, but I can go through a far in a few days if I don't control myself... it's terrifying how I can actually do that! So I just can't eat it anymore, or I won't be able to stop.
