Who likes peanut butter... ya'll may know aboot this... PB2... it's great stuff and it's 85% less fat than regular peanut butter. You can find it here in the foods database. After the peanut oil is extracted the solids are packaged. More than likely, these used to go as waste to livestock feed or maybe as a flavoring agent. Then some brainiac sez..."hey there's gotta be idiots out there that'll pay for this..." and I yam that idiot. I just hope I am not alone in my stupidity. Actually PB2 is a great way for me to get my peanut butter oatmeal fix for 190cals. I scored mine on If my rant is not enough... they make CHOCOLATE PB2... same calories, same price...(btw, I do not make or sell PB2, I just eat it!)
Very Happy

It's good. I used to mix it with yogurt, and it would remind me of Peanut Butter Cheesecake.
DISCLAIMER: I expect to lose this weight over the next 6 months to 5 years. I'm not going to feel like a failure if it takes an entire month to lose 1 pound. I'm going to feel like a success when that happens! I may offer advice that I'm currently not taking myself. Feel free to call me on that!

Is PB2 the powdered kind? I am a peanut butter FREAK but can't find one that is low cal enough for me and that still tastes legit.

PB2 is powdered...I had never heard of powdered peanut butter but someone told me about it so I bought a jar. I bought it at a health food store (in Pittsburgh @ Soergel's Orchards in Wexford). I have used it in some pretty nutritious shakes & liked it.

I think I got mine from Amazon, if anyone's not able to find it locally. Or maybe - but pretty sure they both offered it inexpensively. Yay internetz!

Netrition is my favorite e-tailer. They have a TON of low carb foods, the prices and shipping are super reasonable and everything gets to me in about 3 days.

I found PB2 at Hy-Vee and I've used it in protein shakes and oatmeal. I've tried just mixing it with water and using it on it's own and it's okay, but I like it better mixed in things. I'm wanting to try it in some baking this winter with all of the cookies and things that I make, at least that might take some of the calories and fat out, but I don't know how it will work because there is no oil like regular peanut butter. All I can do is try I guess.
Goals for 2015:

I LOOOOOVE MY Pb2, plain and chocolate!!! I use it in everything! Right now being apple season in NY I use the Choc one, thin it a bit more and mix a teaspoon of vanilla greek yogurt in. Makes a great dip! I have used it in muffins, Muffins in a minute, oatmeal and other hot cereal, yougurt, protein shakes, a kick but aisan pb sauce for chicken and the list goes on. Yes it is very pricy but to someone that has to cut where they can it's been a godsend. You can order direct if all else fails from their site but I have found that alot of healthfood store carry it, the Bell Plantation site as a locator on it too. The freeze dried bags are the way to go. I even got 3 ppl at work hooked.

I am PB2 lover as well. It isn't an perfect substitute for the real thing, but for the calories and the easy way you can blend it up it's a great thing to have around....@thynes I've put it into a homemade spicy Thai peanut chicken soup. Was amazing.

I'v made a peanut dressing w/ PB2, soy sauce, garlic powder, and apple cider vinegar! Love it mixed w/ frozen banana and almond milk. Love it on tortillas... I have not had real peanut butter in at least 6 months! I'm afraid to try real PB again b/c I don't want to ruin my love for PB2!

I've purchased on amazon, but have found it in a health store near my work, so I can get it cheaper there. They sell it at whole foods too, but it is more expensive there, of course!

Hmm, will have to see if I can find some of this at my health food store.
