There’s no doubt that I love peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter…doesn’t matter, I love them all! Whether smeared on toast or a banana, as a dip for apples or celery, or just on a spoon, lately I felt like I was overdoing it a bit. I didn’t feel like I could simply cut back so instead I decided to just cut it all out for a week. It wasn’t an easy week, but it was definitely necessary. Here’s a bit of what I ate:
Through my partnership with Sweat Pink, Manitoba Harvest recently sent me a packet of their vanilla and chocolate hemp protein powders. Oh man, were these ever delicious! I first shook them up with a little water and almond milk and they were delicious. Then I mixed them up in a smoothie and they were just as delicious. I swear the chocolate tasted like chocolate milk. Mmm…mm…mmm…. Use promo code sweatpinkpro70 for 20% off your order!
Apples taste just as good on their own without nut butter. Just in case you also forgot. 😉
Lots of salads with veggies and salmon.
I don’t often buy fake meat products but decided to treat myself to some Trader Joes veggie sausages which I put on top of some zucchini noodles with pesto.
And of course, my go-to eggs with veggies and topped with tomatoes fresh from my parents garden.
Does it get any better? I mean, seriously? 😉
I love nut butters and they have been re-introduced into my diet but I am more aware of how much I’m eating and doing my best to cut back and eat a more reasonable amount.
Are you a nut butter addict?
How do you keep it in control?
