I Love Peanut Butter But I Hate Extra Calories...

I am still on my challenge folks...only 5 days left.

Am I killing it in the gym? Yes!

Do I need a vacation? Yes!

Did my Mom say I was looking buff? Yes!

Do I notice a difference in my fitness level? Yes!

Do I love Peanut Butter? Yes!!

Is peanut butter healthy, but high in fat and calories? Yes!!

Since I love to learn about new healthy trends, I'm going to tell you about Peanut Butter Powder.
It's peanuts, with all the oil squeezed out.  A bit of salt and sugar added, and you have this delicious creation.

Since it's all the rage in the fitness community, I had to order some!

Is it amaze-balls? Yes!

It tastes just like a natural peanut butter, only CREAMY! You mix it with water to make it peanut butter, or you add it to smoothies, protein shakes, or my fave, slice a granny smith and just dip it in the dry powder! Or, substitute it for peanut butter in a billion other things!

I'm in love with this product, because it is delicious. It is dry, so it won't go bad as fast as peanut butter will. And, I can have a serving every day, and it won't count as half a meal's calories for me like other peanut butter's will!

Now, excuse me while I go eat my 2 tbs. of peanut butter, and enjoy every single second!
