Her Thursday Things To Talk About: PB2
Date Night Recap:
Last night we went to my favorite Sushi restaurant in town. I love it because you get your own little room and sit on the floor with big fluffy pillows. I had been craving sushi for some time now, so it was of course perfect!
Some Jasmine Tea to sip on
I ordered a Salmon and Crab Roll!
We then went home and I had to study, only got in about an hours worth then knocked out! This is why……keep reading….
BREATH IN BREATH OUT!
I haven’t been feeling quite like myself these past few days. I have had a constant headache for about 6 days. I have thought of all the reasons for my headache(which I rarely ever have) and have narrowed it down to two things. One being the weather, we have had a lot of rain around here, and the second being stress. I see sunny skies in our future so if it is the weather it should go away, but as far as the stress thing I don’t feel stressed!! Well maybe I am more then I know. I hate taking medicine, but the hubby drugged me last night and I passed out at 9pm! All I know is when I woke up I felt like I had been sleeping for YEARS!!!!
I jumped out of bed threw on my running clothes and drove straight to the gym. I had an easy 3 mile run today, and I did some abs and burpees. I was going to do Mark’s challenge, but I forgot to write it down(don’t worry Mark I will be doing it this week).
When I got home I made a new protein smoothie using some PB2!
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1/4 cup TJ’s cheese style yogurt
- 1/2 banana
- 2 tbs of PB2
- 1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder
- 1/2 cup of oats
- 1 cup of ice
I topped it off with some Zoe Cranberry Currant Granola, mmmm….I think I need to add a little more sweetness of some kind next time. Was a little to bland for me. I normally don’t do a lot of smoothies for breakfast ,because they don’t seem to fill me up, but this one is packed with protein so I am hoping it will at least hold me over until my next snack.
LET’S TALK ABOUT PB2
Gina from Bell Plantation, so graciously sent me some PB2 a couple of weeks ago and I am loving it! Thanks Gina. I heard about it from other blogs, but had yet to try it. If you are wondering what is different about PB2, let me explain a little. It’s a peanut butter that comes in a powder form, which makes it easy to cook with and add to smoothies!
PB2 is made with premium quality peanuts that are slow-roasted and pressed to remove the fat. All you have do is mix with water and you get the same consistency as regular peanut butter.
No artificial sweeteners or preservatives are added to our PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter, Chocolate PB2, or Extra Virgin Roasted Peanut Oil.
Amount Per 2 Tablespoon Serving (*when mixed with water):
Fat 1.87 g!!!!!
Maybe Gina will even let me do a contest, let me see what I can do. Would you like to try some? Have you tried it, what do you think?
