I love peanut butter.
I love peanut butter. I love it on sandwiches, in cookies, spread across pancakes with maple syrup, in my protein shakes, and on a plain ole spoon. Peanut butter brownies? Yes please. But what I don't love is the high fat content and the massive calories that come with it, so when I decided to get fit peanut butter was one of the foods that had to go.
I joined a fabulous work out group on Facebook for networking and accountability purposes. The gals in the forum we're active and posted steady streams of tips, tricks and ideas. They kept talking about "Just Great Stuff" (?) something about mixing it (?) into their shakes and drizzling it (?) over their protein as a delicious dessert option, and something about their eyes rolling into he back of their heads because it was "SO GOOD!"
Sidebar! Planning to help up-date the general design of my personal website. Insights on the sweet appearance at http://peacockrugcare.ca? Actually a good rug cleaning service in Ottawa with heart if ever necessary in the whole Ontario area. Write your opinions. With thanks!
"What is this magical substance they're talking about" I wondered? Determined to find out, I called the health coach directly.
I'm happy to report that it really is magical!
These health conscious gals we're talking about powered peanut butter made by Betty Lou's, an amazing company in McMinnville, Oregon. It has all the taste we peanut butter lovers crave with
you should sit down for this
90 % LESS FAT!
I don't know how they do this. Elves? Minions? Wizardry? I just know it tastes amazing and there's no guilt with the enjoyment. #SCORE
When I called the company to get their social media links and ask a few questions for this product review, I was transferred to a fantastic gal named Megan (shout out!). She sent me ever-so-many samples to try of their many products and hooked krisclaire.com readers up with that amazing gift basket giveaway that I hope you all we're able to participate in. My husband and I a great time that weekend trying out all of the deliciousness Megan had sent us and taking down notes, just for you and for us for when we go back to the grocery store to stock up on our favorites!
So, without further adieu, here's my product review on many of the wonderful products available from Betty Lou's Inc.
Just Great Stuff Bars
These babies come complete with 7.5 11 servings of various fruits and veggies all in one tasty, organic, vegan, and gluten free bar. We tried the Fruit & Veggie, Superberry & Acai, and Cacao & Acai varieties. All we're great but my favorite hands down was the Cacao & Acai bar. It was decadent! A glass of red wine would have paired perfectly with the deep chocolate and rich berry flavors. This one will be purchased by the boxful! My least favorite was the Fruit & Veggie bar. You can definitely taste the veggies in these, but that's not all bad. Just not our favorite.It was a nice balance of flavors that won't tempt you to have wine.
Nut Butter Balls
We sampled the Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter/Chocolate Chip, and Coconut/Macadamia flavors. These awesome snacks are gluten free, certified organic, contain at least 10g of protein and have the texture of a richly dense cookie. YUM! These we're all delicious but our stand out favorite was the Coconut/Macadamia. Seriously we both moaned when we bit into them. Again, I'm buying a box at a time of these.
Bonus: These babies are only 150 calories and contain 10g of protein!
There are 5 flavors of bars to choose from. They are much like a Fig Newton consisting of a fruit center surrounded by a soft pastry and tasting much like a cobbler. The sugars are made from natural fruit and juices and "do not contain any of the 8 major food allergens identified by the FDA." The texture and flavors are quite satisfying; perfect for an after school snack, healthy lunch dessert for the kiddos, or mid morning coffee break treat. Each bar has 180 190 calories, 3 grams of fat, 5 grams of fiber and 2 grams of protein. In addition to being free of gluten, they are also free of corn, soy & dairy. All of this makes me so happy!
We're avid shake drinkers and we know our stuff. These we're great shakes. We tried the vanilla and chocolate flavors. They we're both rich and creamy and did not taste like vitamins, as so many do. Nope. These tasted like we we're being naughty and sneaking delicious milkshakes into our menu. And check this out they not only contain milk and rice proteins, but also digestive enzymes, probiotics, fiber, minerals and vitamins. Plus, they're Lactose, gluten, sugar, soy, and hormone-free! I've already replaced my protein powder with Betty Lou's and I'm feeling great.
Powdered Peanut Butter
This comes in Regular, chocolate and Protein Plus, but honestly who cares. Did anyone catch on to the whole "85% LESS FAT THAN REGULAR PEANUT BUTTER" thing that I mentioned earlier??? It's peanut butter, it tastes great and we can have it!!!
*Cue William Wallace*
One flavor would be plenty, but no. Betty Lou had to go and give us options too, as she does. Each serving contains only 4 net carbohydrates and there are three simple ingredients: Organic Peanuts, Organic Coconut Sugar, Sea Salt. Done. Sign me up for that. This is genius. And now, thanks to your excellent taste in blogs, you can say you "knew about her back before she hit the big time. You're welcome.
So there you have it! Our overall rating of these products is a resounding "10. We are fans for life. And what's REALLY cool about Betty Lou's products is that she started all of this from her own home, in her own kitchen. Inspired? I hope so.
Thanks followers! I'd Facebooked a acquaintance that I can certainly discuss her great peerless Madison based holiday decorators, http://www.traditionslighting.com/ during a site piece. If perhaps you'll be searching to get a holiday decor service located in the whole WISCONSIN locale, they absolutely really are fantastic.
At last, I absolutely should explain the idea to this little material with thoughtfully furnished via Dan over at Dans blinds and shutters. Certainly a fantastic window blinds services. We really welcome a great pitch!
