Nuts for Nut Butter

It’s probably no surprise I love nut butter. I mean, you guys see how much of it I eat on CNC. I basically plow through about a jar in one week all by myself (ok, maybe 1.5 jars). Mal might eat a serving or two, but, typically, I dominate the jar. What can I say, I am nuts for nut butter!

Breakfast

Mal (surprisingly) finished off the jar of Teddie Peanut Butter yesterday afternoon, so I used the nearly-empty jar for Overnight Oats in a Jar. In the mix: rolled oats, almond milk, cottage cheese, and fresh blueberries.

After breakfast, I spent a few hours working and then Mal and I took Murphy to the dog park.

Do you want to go for a ride in the car to the park?

Snack

My breakfast didn’t hold me over very well this morning, so I mixed up an iced coffee with protein powder and almond milk as a mid-morning snack.

Janetha recently hooked me up with a new protein powder from fitmixer that I’m absolutely loving. The flavor sorts of reminds me of vanilla cake. It’s so delicious!

Mal, Murph, and I had a nice time at the park. It was a beautiful day!

Our trip to the park was a success because Murphy was totally pooped on the ride home.

Lunch

When I got home, I threw together a quick lunch: scrambled eggs with kale and mozzarella.

I also ate a couple of handfuls of almonds as I walked out the door to drive to NuVal.

NuVal recently moved to a bigger and nicer building. It’s gorgeous inside!

Snack

After spending a few hours at NuVal, I headed home and made an afternoon snack, which was a sliced banana with granola, dried cranberries, and a big scoop of peanut butter. It hit the spot.

Question of the Day

What food are you “nuts” about? You know, the food that you eat a lot of and totally love it.

P.S. Local dog owners: On Sunday (7/1), a food truck for dogs is coming to the SoWa Open Market in the South End. Fun! Murphy really wants to go! For more info: http://www.sowaopenmarket.com/special-events/

  1. I’ve always liked peanut butter, but never went through jars that quickly. Then I was introduced to Trader Joe’s Roasted Almond Butter w/ Flax Seeds, and that was that–I plow through a jar of that in a week by myself! I don’t think I can ever eat plain Jiffy peanut butter again. This almond butter just takes things to another level!

  2. I love Greek yogurt! I will find anything and everything to mix in it – I would eat it for every meal if I could. Maybe it’s a food phase?

  3. I am SUPER OBSESSED with peanut butter!!! I eat a jar a week. I honestly think its a sad day without it. I’m also obsessed with oatmeal, sweet potatoes, and ice cream….I must have them everyday!

  4. Wow, I could go on and on! I am one of those girls that goes on kicks, one week I will love something and eat it ALOT and than I can’t even look at it. Right now it is probably Kale Chips, so yum, rainer cherries and raw vegan chocolate… I love nut butter too! Have you tried pecan or walnut, depending on what you mix it with it tastes like cookie dough. I can’t keep it in the house…

  5. I’ve been tearing through nut butter, too. I’ve been mixing it with plain Greek yogurt and using it as a dip for fruit. Delicious! 🙂

  6. I absolutely LOVE crunchy peanut butter, my roommates make fun of me and say I could literally live off of it. Recently I’ve tried to slow down on it though because I was eating too much haha. I really want to try the Teddy nut butter, but haven’t gotten over to whole foods to pick up a jar- I know if I go in there I’ll end up wanting more stuff and spending WAY too much money (the prices are sky-high). I am also nuts about pistachio’s (unsalted). I love just relaxing on the couch and having this snack.

  7. You should write a series of dog training posts!
    I just adopted a pug/boston terrier and she’s the best but has some odd behaviors.
