here's a little thing that made me happy today...

As some of you know, peanut butter is one of my trigger foods. I can go into a mindless coma eating spoonfuls of the stuff, and boy, does it wreck havoc on my food plan.
My friend Brenda and I were talking the other day and she told me about some instant peanut butter-just add water-that is fat free. She said that it wasn't the kind of stuff you wanted to eat by the spoonful, but it was good for a pb fix. I stopped at TJ looking for the stuff, didn't find it, but found "Better than Peanut Butter" there.
Oh my, 2 grams of fat in 2 tbs, 4 grams of protein, 13 carbs, 2 grams of sugar, no HFCS, 100 cals in 2 tablespoon full. And the best news is, it tastes great! Not eat off the spoon great, but 1 tablespoon spread on 1 thin bun toasted with a dot of sugar free jam absolutely fabulous, delicious, and craving satisfying. It is my new favorite thing, for 110 cals I can indulge my peanut butter cravings without blowing my healthy eating! It just made me happy!
