Peanut Butter what has happen to you?!?

I am a super huge fan of peanut butter and it came as a shock that peanut butter was affected by salmonella. The great thing is there is alternatives to peanut butter that taste great and also are lower in calories.

PB2 is a very yummy powder peanut butter. Powder peanut butter?!?!?? Yes, this isn't a typo. What you do is dish out 2 tablespoons of the PB2 and then mix in 2 tablespoons of water in bowl. It forms into a yummy peanut butter like paste. Now, I will put this on Fiber One bars, vitatop brownies, or even eat with apples. The calories are 50 calories for 2 tablespoons. Check them out at http://www.bellplantation.com/

Another alternative is Better 'n Peanut Butter. This alternative is okay but I enjoy eating it mixed with something else. Like if you are making a peanut butter and jelly sandwhich. http://www.betternpeanutbutter.com/ They also just came out of a chocolate peanut butter jar. I haven't tried this but this stuff can be find at many groceries nationwide. 2 tablespoons is 100 calories and only 2.5% fat!!!

Last but not least I found out about this peanut butter from http://www.hungry-girl.com/. http://fitnutzbutter.com/index.html is the website. I haven't ordered this peanut butter but I have read rave reviews and it is low calories. It is only 1 weight watcher point! Woo Hoo!


  1. you know how much I love my PB2!! I order it by the case and I use it every morning to make the "paste" and put it on my english muffin. I've also mixed it with flaxseed in the past just to get some extra benefits. Also, you get a regular size PB jar and it's actually DOUBLE that amount because you add water to it to make the PB. So when ordering don't be upset once you get the containers.

    Betternpeanutbutter I'm not as happy about. It's good too, but a bit on the sticky side for me.

  2. Yeah with better N' Peanut butter that stuff is sticky!! I have been known to just eat straight from jar (much easier) but hell that is any peanut butter. LoL I havent bought that stuff in awhile. The other thing about that stuff is the fact it goes in the fridge.
