Okay, so I have a new favorite product. And I need to tell you about how amazing it is.

I looooovee Peanut Butter but anyone watching what they eat knows that you have to use it sparingly. 2 tablespoons of most peanut butter will cost you about 180 calories and 17 grams of fat and while most of it is good fat and it's full of healthy amino acids and a little protein, the calories and fat add up fast. Plus, who can stop themselves at just 2 tablespoons of peanut butter? It's amazing on everything.

Enter my new favorite thing ever - PB2. It's powedered peanut butter. Yes, powdered. But it's not full of strange chemicals or preservatives, just peanuts, salt and sugar. And it's made in Tifton! How could I not support a company from my home state?! And the best part? 2 tablespoons of PB2 has 50 calories and 2 grams of fat!
I know what you're thinking - diet foods are gross. And this is generally true, but PB2 is delish! You just add a tablespoon of water, mix it up and use it just like your old favorite type of peanut butter. Or you could mix it directly with strawberry jelly. Or with wait! They make chocolate PB2 too!

So it's a little more expensive than the Jif you grab from the store (about $5 for a jar) and mixing it with water is a little less convienant than tradiational PB, it's totally worth it to save 130 calories. Why waste them on peanut butter when you could be eating ice cream?!

Check out Bell Plantation's website for more information about PB2 and to order some samples or find out where you can get it locally.
