Hey for all you peanut butter lovers here is a link to a site. Its great peanut butter, I honestly don't taste a difference.

Its powdered pb that has had the oil pressed out, low calories, 2tbs is 55 cals. Check it out. I have started using it in my smoothies and for dip also.

Back ON topic, and a reply that is HELPFUL.

You can try fat free peanut butter. THe 'organic' type also works for me. Although it's not much less in cals.

I just try to incorporate it into my goals. 2 TBS is usually more than enough (1 tbs per slice of bread). Also, if I'm using it for dipping (apples are GREAT with pb), the 2 tbs works well.

Yes, the new PB2 powdered peanut butter is excellent, and only 55 calories and I'm a peanut butter addict.

Please don't take offense to this, but what's wrong with eating regular peanut butter? Shouldn't this be a lifestyle change? Not a restriction. Also, PB keeps you feeling full. What I like to do is eat whole grain bread w/ PB for breakfast and it keeps me full.

7:43 Exactly why and who is obnoxious? That seems like an uncalled for statement.

To the op the PB2 is great.

staying on topic

I agree w/ 8:46. I love PB, I know that it's high in calories, but the protein and even peanut oil are good for me, and as long as I plan it as a non-everyday thing (I even think of it as a treat), I can still enjoy it! If I spread it thin, 1 T is plenty on a slice of good bread, and sometimes I have an add-on like bananas or raisins. I do have to really limit myself, because if I really let go I'll just eat it out of the jar with a spoon (gee, I wonder how I got to my current state???)!

The powder peanut butter is great for cooking or just a variety of things, don't be so narrow minded. I eat whole wheat bread and real peanut butter for breakfast also.
