I was so excited when I got the text message from my friend Jessie asking if I had eaten breakfast yet and if I wanted to go out to breakfast to celebrate our birthdays, her birthday is on the 15th and mine is on the 16th. Yes! Yes! Yes! I threw calorie counting to the wind and ate pancakes, eggs, bacon, and hashbrowns. Yummy! I am so glad she thought to ask. It was a great start to my day and hopefully hers. :o)
I get these emails from HungryGirl.com. They give ideas for low calorie meals as well as lower calorie options for your favorite foods. It was here I found the low calorie pasta that I have grown to love. Since I have been watching my calories I have been looking for a lower calorie peanut butter. I love peanut butter and eat it often, I eat it on my pancakes, waffles, french toast, sandwiches, fruit, etc. It just makes everything taste better.
The other day I got an email from HungryGirl.com talking about peanut butter and bacon. I was so excited. They talked about two different brands of peanut butter that were around 50 calories per serving as compared to the usual 180 calories. I was very excited but a little wary when I found out it was a powder that you add water to. I found a store that carried it and thought it was worth a shot. My first reaction is that it is not horrible. I tried it on some toast. I think I added too much water so I am interested to try it with less water added. I am also interested to try it in a recipe. Can you say peanut butter bars? :o)
