No more Peanut Butter
I have decided that I have to purge my house of peanut butter. Today, I enjoyed an apple with some almond butter. Then I proceeded to use a spoon to finish the jar of almond butter while I caught up on some emails. This is a situation that repeats itself many times a week in my house. I love peanut butter and it's many derivatives. It is sweet and creamy and wonderfully tasty. But, I seem to have no will power when it comes to nut butters. So, today I took the two jars that I had in the pantry and tossed them in the trash. The biggest problem was that I couldn't even toss them out without first having a huge spoonful of each. I've saved one jar so that I can make Jaden his peanut butter sandwiches on Wednesdays when he goes to school. If I find myself dipping into that, I might have to toss it too. There is nothing worse that finishing a great run and feeling fantastic and then 30 minutes later, feeling disgusting because you have just stuffed your gut with a very high fat and dense glob of peanut butter.
