This week has been absolutely crazy, and it’s only Tuesday! I made it home after a 5 hour delay in Salt Lake City and spent most of Sunday prepping for the week. I’m scheduled to work close to 20 hours this week so I’ve been waking up at 6:30, working out, then heading to class. I come home after class to quickly shower and go to work until 8 and then I do my homework and study until about 12. Yikes!
Speaking of food, I realized I’ve tried many types of peanut butter and I’m willing to share my opinion on such a controversial topic. Here are the good, the bad, and the ugly of the peanut butter world my friends.
1. Adam’s All Natural
Bleh. I am not a fan. There is way too much oil at the top of this peanut butter to stir in properly, and it has a terrible texture. The creamy is grainy and runny. Mind you, bad peanut butter is still pretty delicious so I’d eat it if I had to, but I probably will never buy it again.
2. Justin’s Peanut Butter
I was super excited to try this because it’s very popular and it’s also crazy expensive, which I thought just had to mean it was great quality. It tasted delicious, slightly sweet and salty, but it was rock hard. It didn’t stir into my oatmeal at all and it ripped up my bread when I tried to spread it.
3. Central Market Brand Organic Peanut Butter
You do have to stir this, but there is very little oil so it’s easy to incorporate it into the entire jar! It’s a little bit too runny, but that actually makes it great to drizzle on oatmeal and it spreads easily across bread. The flavor doesn’t have as much sweetness as I like but it’s still delicious.
5. Peanut Butter Company White Chocolate Wonderful
This is the mother of all nut butters. Perfectly creamy and smooth, salty and sweet, no stirring required…heaven. It’s pretty pricey but I freaking love this stuff. Next time I’m going to forget the 3 extra dollars and buy it. It is AMAZING.
On Sunday I did a Nike cardio workout (squat jumps, split jumps, burpees and froggers all in a row?!? Kill me!!) Yesterday I warmed up with 30 minutes on the bike and then worked my biceps and triceps. Today was another nike toning circuit workout that I completed while watching Glee. (Does everyone in that show have to sleep together?!?) haha.
What’s your favorite kind of peanut butter?
