P.B.A.A.

It’s Friday.

First pump.

Round-off, flip-flop, back handspring, layout.

I was a gymnast in another life.

Fo sho.

I’m a member of Peanut Butter Addicts Anonymous and while I’d love to be 100% paleo, don’t come between me and my peanut butter.

It’s the only legume I’ll eat.

That, and green beans.

Not together.

However, I do try to put peanut butter on just about anything I can get my hands on.

My latest obsession: turkey burger patty w/ a mountain of peanut butter on it.

Don’t judge me.

My mom recently purchased a magic bullet.

Google it.

She told me that is what happens when you are sick in bed all day and subjected to watching infomercials.

I’m reaping the rewards of her infomercial obsession.

This powdered peanut butter stuff is perfect for using in smoothies.

It’s also life changing.

With 85% less fat than regular peanut butter, less sodium, and ummmmm…protein.

Duh.

I make a smoothie once in a blue moon, but lately, this magic bullet has me feeling the smoothie fever.

  1. I think you should try a green bean PB combo. 🙂 (When’s the next PBAA meeting b/c I need to be there.)

      Debra! I will let you know. 😉 Now that I think about it, an Asian inspired peanut butter green bean dish wouldn’t be that bad. Yum. I’ll work on it 🙂
