For the LOVE of Peanut Butter

tumblr_m0uqvhIyiI1rovrq5o1_400

I love peanut butter. I eat it on everything and anything, even straight out of the jar. However, I do not love how high in fat it is. I hate to waste my allotted fat for the day on one meal, so I’ve done some extensive research trying to find some alternatives. Here are the top low fat peanut butter substitutes in my book, best price and nutritional content.

This product reduces the fat by removing most of the oil. You mix the powder with water to create the peanut butter consistency you are used to. This product is also amazing for baking. You can buy this at Whole Foods, GNC, and directly online.
