Nutter Butters, Jif by the spoonfull, homeade peanut butter cookies, honey roasted peanuts, Reeses Peanut Butter Cups................the list is endless.
When I was pregnant with my middle child I survived on peanut butter. Really. Everything else gave me heartburn. And after she came out? Everything gave her heartbearn............except, you guessed it.......peanut butter. So, for 6 months while breastfeeding I ate peanut butter.
I know it is packed full of protein. But, I am like a crack addict with it. I even eat Capn Crunch Peanut Butter flavor. *Sigh*
I don't wonder why the scale hasn't budged in 4 days..............I know why. PEANUT BUTTER.
As I am looking through all my food logs I am seeing a trend. Peanut butter has made a re-appearance. I know there is healthy peanut butter out there. I have tried it. But, YUK.........dry and nasty. No, I like the really bad Jif. The full flavor with the loaded oil. The kind that stays on your hips once it passes your lips.
Why am I writing this? So, I can be accountable to all of you.
My goal this week is to cut peanut butter out. I don't know whether to cut it out completely or limit it to maybe 2 servings this week. Any suggestions would be helpful.
Right now I am going to go convulse in a corner..............because my peanut butter withdrawls have already started.
