Peanut butter, my beloved

Saturday, December 29, 2012

Peanut butter my dear friend, my comfort, is it time to say goodbye? I've been steadily reducing from 2 tbs to 1 tbs and now I'm at 1 tsp in my oatmeal. But if I could just get used to not having it in my oatmeal I could save some calories and fat. It's not even the natural peanut butter It's reduced fat skippy. You know why I like the reduced fat? Because it has more sugar...I'm so gross. I used to collect empty jars of it and used then as decorations. I think I had 30 empty jars being used as vases at one point.

Maybe I'll make that a new fast break. Eating almond butter instead. Or maybe natural pb. But they taste so bla without the sugar. Should I just allow myself that 1 tsp a day?

    there is nothing wrong with a limited amount of peanut butter. It can be a part of a healthy diet. as long as you are not going over on your calorie or fat allowance. all things in moderation emoticon

  I say go for it! If you deny yourself it may trigger a binge.

    I love peanut butter too. Just seeing the title of your blog has me wanting to go grab the jar from the cabinet.

but I've eaten a healthy breakfast and I'm not the least bit hungry, so I will do my best to abstain

for now emoticon

    peanut butter is a big downfall for me as well
i buy the bigger jars and go thru one in a week....
i had no problem trading oatmeal for raisin bran, then trading raisin bran for prunes and yogurt...
but giving up peanut butter is a bigger issue
and i know the calories, fat and sugar i would save
i know i would probably be better off getting protein from fish or eggs or cottage cheese
but that is on my new years list, to cut back on peanut butter emoticon

  I say yes, limit it, until you can live without it. If that day doesn't come, it's okay!
