I am not much of a peanut butter eater, unless said peanut butter is Jif reduced fat. I love the taste and texture of the reduced fat version. I know it is not really any good for someone trying to lose some weight, but I often feel powerless against the siren song.
A couple weeks ago, I got completely ensnared. I could not stop pulling out a spoon to get a yummy dollop. One after another, after another…even though I could feel my clothing getting tight again. It was just so yummy. Then a friend told me about all the sodium in it…I knew I had to resist when I gained 6 lbs in a week.
But oh the agony of my lost love.
I held strong and I did it. I cut myself down from spoon after spoon in a day to less than one a day. And thankfully my body was nice enough to forgive me for the sodium onslaught and go back to normal. But I know my weakness.
So this week found me buying crunchy peanut butter. I hate the taste, the texture, everything about it. Yay!!!
I am trying to make other good choices. I am logging my food, eating lots of protein at breakfast, added in low fat cheese as a snack. I need more ideas.
What are your real food go-to items? Do you have recipes you can share? Help me get my eating on the bandwagon. I have some goals that running alone won’t win…
