Organic PB

Too Legit To Quit 

I hate to admit it but I'm one of those people that clicks on the "10 foods you should never eat" links
 
 when they appear on my facebook newsfeed or yahoo homepage. I've noticed something, the
 
same foods pop up over and over on these articles.  The one food that shocked me the most is peanut
 
 butter. Being the peanut butter lover that I am, I decided to dig a little deeper into the issue.  In doing
 
 multiple searches over the past week I've learned that non-organic peanut butter is one of the worst
 
things we can give our kids. Peanut butter often contains high amounts of pesticides and fungus.
 
However, if you buy organic you must refrigerate it after opening or a fungus can form once the jar is
 
 open. The cold air apparently helps stop this process from happening.
 
In an effort to be more healthy we bought organic peanut butter and almond butter last week. OH MY
 
 GOODNESS, what a difference!!! The flavor is totally different. It's so delicious that we just kept
 
staring at each other and eating another bite. Which is how we've already finished the jar of almond
 
butter and the peanut butter is half way gone, yes, it is that good. If it helps I have been eating it on
 
35 calorie rice cakes at least :/  Ok that's a lie, I've been eating it on the 60 calorie chocolate crunch
 
rice cakes every morning for breakfast, sooooo yummy!
