I loved reading your responses on your favorite peanut butter. Seriously…I now have a long list of peanut butters to try! Here are a few of my observations from your responses:
- I am not alone in my nut butter addiction. I was surprised to see several of you don’t even buy certain nut butters for fear you will plow through a jar in a matter of days. I’m happy to hear that I’m not the only one who has to have some type of nut butter every day! (My favorite was the commenter who said it was part of the food pyramid. Amen!)
- I MUST try to make my own nut butter at home.
- Flavored peanut butters are very popular – White Chocolate Wonderful, Cinnamon Raisin Swirl, Chocolate Peanut Butter…so many delicious sounding combinations!
- Peanut butter is not a complete source of protein because it doesn’t contain all 10 essential amino acids but if you have a small glass of milk alongside you’re in business!
Here are the top vote getters.
Let’s keep the peanut butter love going. What is your favorite way to eat peanut butter? I think my all time favorite is peanut butter, honey and banana sandwiches. Mmm…
Moving along! Today was crazy busy but awesome. It started with a 5 a.m. wake up call to teach BodyPump. I somehow got scheduled to teach three 6 a.m.’s this week. Good thing I love early morning workouts, huh?
I had overnight oats at my desk when I got into work. Quick tip…I like to put the mix in freezer while I’m getting ready for work so that they are extra cold (but not frozen) when I eat them.
My work day flew by and before I knew it, it was time to head over to Vivace for a baby shower for a co-worker.
We enjoyed some delicious appetizers and drinks and wrote notes on newborn diapers to encourage the new parents during those middle of the night changings when the baby comes!
Fig, prosciutto, gorgonzola and arugula pizza.
Artichoke and goat cheese bruschetta.
It was a beautiful evening to sit on Vivace’s awesome patio with a view of the Charlotte skyline.
We had a contest to guess the number of M&Ms in a jar and guess who won!?
There were 1,210 M&Ms in this jar!!! I came closest with a guess of 1,100. I planned on taking these to work with me but Brandon is insisting that they stay at home. This is going to be trouble…we already plowed through way too many tonight!
How cute is this cake!? My co-worker is having a boy and they are doing a beach themed nursery.
Mommy-to-be in the middle! I am so lucky to work with such fun and amazing people!
I am also so lucky to have a sweet husband who makes dinner while I’m out baby showering!
He stopped by Earth Fare this evening and picked up some of their housemade chicken sausages to grill. We had spicy Italian, some sort of Mexican blend and spinach and feta. Sauteed spinach, orzo and French bread on the side.
Off to bed – teaching 6 a.m. yoga tomorrow!
