It’s no secret that I love peanut butter. A lot.
I usually measure out my peanut butter by the tablespoonful, otherwise I would eat half the jar. No joke. Except usually that tablespoon turns into a heaping tablespoon or a tablespoon plus three more scoops right from the peanut butter jar directly into my mouth because those don’t count, right?
So, when I saw this Better’n Peanut Butter made with real peanuts for only 100 calories for two tablespoons, I was sold.
Until I tasted it.
It tasted gross. It didn’t taste like peanut butter. It tasted like gross butter. (No offense if you love Better’n Peanut Butter, but I don’t).
Lesson Learned: It’s better to have a little bit of the real thing than it is to have a lot of the fake thing.
Anyone want a jar of Better’n Peanut Butter? Only opened once.
After I got over my disappointment, I made a snack with real peanut butter.
Apple ring slices with peanut butter and granola. They were so good, especially with the honeycrisp apple.
I also found this new Extra Dessert Delights gum in rainbow sherbet. Yes, please.
It was good but not as good as some of the other flavors of the Extra dessert gum…which the dentist told me to stop chewing all day long. Which I told her to mind her own business. Except I only said it in my head.
It’s funny because a few days after I went to the dentist, I was reading the new issue of Health magazine and it talked about the benefits of chewing gum.
It reduces stress. It sharpens focus. And it curbs cravings. So there, Dr. Dentist. Chewing gum will make me less stressed, more focused, and skinny. I knew magic was real.
- 1 mile treadmill, walked
- BodyPump – 60 minutes
I got to the gym a little before Body Pump this morning, but my calves have been sore lately, so I just walked one slow mile on the treadmill. I have plans to meet up with the Biggest Losers tonight to run, so I wanted to take it easy on my legs this morning, not that Body Pump is exactly easy on the legs.
Questions of the day:
- A lot of something fake or a little of something real?
- Do you chew gum?
- Do you always do what your doctor/dentist tells you to?
