I thought I could go back to keeping peanut butter in my house, but I was dead wrong. My boyfriend is an enabler, albeit an adorable and loving enabler, who gave me his peanut butter since it was not “easily spreadable”. Good thing (?) I just eat it with a spoon. I can simply eat an entire 16 oz. container of Skippy Reduced Fat peanut butter with an orgasmic smile on my face. That’s about 2400 calories right there. DOUBLE my daily allotted calories for my fitness plan! This week I attempted to only eat about half in a seating, but in the past I could house that entire container like a pint of ice cream while watching “Hoarders.” Sure, moments after I’m done I’ll have a feeling of nausea and regret followed by extra miles at the gym, but I felt it was worth it in the past. Today I don’t feel the same way. I don’t want to give up peanut butter, but I think switching to individual packets will be the best way for me to manage portion control. I also found some Reduced Fat JIF To Go packs in case I find myself wanting to dip something besides my mouth into the creamy deliciousness. I do have to make sure not to keep to many in the house or they will all be gone in one day! Don’t worry, I’m working on my discipline in therapy, but it’s been an ongoing battle. This may not be the most cost effective plan, but it will aid me in resisting my unhealthy urges. Ultimately that is most important to me.
I also found these individual Nutella packets online! This can help many Nutella addicts out there, myself included!
