I used to love to snack on Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches before I went on this weight loss journey. I have since cut back on sugar and carbs so I started snacking on an open face peanut butter and fresh strawberry on whole wheat bread on occasion. I love the protein you get with peanut butter but am not a fan of the calories or fat content.
I recently heard about powdered peanut butter and got to review the Chike PB brand. By eating Chike PB instead of regular peanut butter you save about 140 calories and 14 grams of fat per serving.
First I used the peanut butter in my morning protein shake and made a chocolate peanut butter shake. Since the peanut butter is in powder form it mixes really well in a shake.
You can also reconstitute is with water to make a spreadable peanut butter. All you have to do is mix 1 tblsp of water with 2 tblsp of the Chike PB until smooth. I had it with some fresh apples as a healthy snack.
