My name is Kimberly, and I am a PB2 addict! There I said it! It used to be that I was a peanut butter addict, but now- with PB2, I get my craving for PB handled without the added fat!
PB2 is a powdered peanut butter that offers 85% less fat than traditional peanut butter. Even more exciting, the process they use at Bell Plantation to create this amazing PB2 doesn’t involve chemicals, artificial sweeteners or anything you can’t pronounce!
So…a few questions that I know are burning in your brains….
If I’m using All-Natural Peanut Butter, and that’s considered a healthy fat then why the need to use PB2?
All-Natural Peanut Butter is a considered a healthy fat, as long as you adhere to the servings suggested by your nutrition plan, you’re good to go. BUT- sometimes, okay, for me, often I want a snack or a shake that has peanut butter in it. However, my meal plan doesn’t account for a “healthy fat” in that particular meal, maybe post-workout or I may be at a point where I’m only using healthy oils as my fat. So…with PB2 I can have all the taste of peanut butter, without the fat!
