Use Less Peanut Butter


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

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.

    I measure mine too! And I do the same thing as you...4 tsps...this way I save on the calories in the serving size.

    I agree 1T not quite enough, but 2T is too much. I usually do 1T and a little bit more. It's also nice to know other people are actually measuring peanut butter. Every time I measure it, I think I must be a little bit insane. Apparently not.

    Yeah, I always only use one tbsp; two is just way too much.
