I love peanut butter but find that if I use the chunky version I tend to use at least twice as much on my toast and sandwiches as when I use the smooth variety. Go for the smooth kind and save a lot of calories!

I have found a great peanut butter in my market. PB2 powdered peanut butter. Do not say "yuck" yet! It taste exactly like peanut butter once you add a small amount of water. It has 85% less fat. It is located in the same area as the regular peanut butter.
I am a peanut butter lover could eat it all the time :) Well I recently found PB2 which is a pressed peanut butter. It basically removes all of the oil leaving you with a powdered peanut butter that you add to dishes or favorite drink!!! Way less calories and still get the peanut butter flavor :) Their website also has lots of great recipes. PB2 only has 45 calories so this cuts about 150 calories compared to regular peanut butter 224
A "serving size" of peanut butter is 2 tablespoons. I use 4 teaspoons instead. By cutting back a little bit, and using a no-salt or low-fat peanut butter then I am saving on calories while still getting my peanut butter fix.
