Oh, Peanut Butter, How I Love Thee

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

emoticon but you have to go away for awhile.

I am finding that no matter how much I love you, you are getting in the way of my goals. I am not saying this is forever, I am just saying I need a little time to myself right now. I find myself thinking about your smooth buttery creaminess during the day. You are starting to take my eyes off of the prize.

Today, I chose to spend more time with you than my other pals and Carrotts, Peppers, Berries and Cauliflower missed me today. I was supposed to spend time with them and chose you when I had made plans with them.

So don't try to get my attention at the store. Your suave little label shall not entice me. No, not even if you're on sale. Someday I will let you back into the cupboard and we can begin our relationship anew.

Think of how much fitter and healthier I will be the next time you see me in the kitchen reaching up to grab your jar from the shelf. You wont even recognize me.

I will miss you but this is just something I have to do for myself.

    I am right there with you! I can't have it in the house bc I will eat a whole jar in a week! I don't think it's that bad for you, if you can moderate.

    I hear you on this one. Why does something healthy, natural, and yummy have to be so high in calories. For me mixed nuts, fruity nutty trail mix, and eggs.. I love them all WAY WAY too much. Sometimes you just have to put it down and walk away.

    I eat Jiff Extra Crunchy, 1 Tablespoon on a half sandwich made with Oroweat Oatnut bread, Oscar Meyer smoked turkey and 1 Tablespoon Smucker's sugarfree Blackberry jam...

Nothing better than that! emoticon

    I don't buy peanut butter or PB2 for the same reason. It gains control and I lose it or give it up way to easily. I can't seem to find moderation where it is concerned. Good thing is that I know this about me!

    Must get PB2! Thanks, Kat!

Amy- I use these things called corn thins by Good Grains. Like rice cakes but taste like corn chips. Actually really good with even more things than PB.

Yeep, my problem is certainly moderation with PB, Fenway. I have this on again, off agin relationship with PB. When I get outta control with it, I have to back off.

Thanks, everyone! Love this SP business! So uplifting!

    Oh my! There's no way I could give up my peanut butter. Right now I'm eating it for my lunch on toast, the toast is because I forgot to buy a couple packages of english muffins when we went to the store this time around for the month. I'll snag em next time. Love me some PB on English Muffins!

    if you love peanut butter, then you must try PB2. Only 30 calories in two tablespoons and Nothing artificial!!!!!!! Just peanut try goodness. Google it and then smear away!!
