I.freakin.love. almond butter/peanut butter/cashew butter. Ever since my days as a vegan I am able to easily eat an entire jar of the stuff in one sitting! In fact, I stopped buying it around June of last year because I was eating so much of it. Since going primal last July, I've had basically no cravings for nut butter and I have maybe had half of a jar over the last seven months. So lately I've been trying to increase carbs and it has inspired me to start enjoying a larger variety of food. I decided to go out on a limb and buy a jar of almond butter! Well, I bought the jar yesterday, Monday morning and I had 3 T with breakfast. This morning I had 2T more with breakfast and I thought I was doing really good with not eating the entire jar! and then the clock struck 6. I wanted a snack before my workout because I wouldn't be eating dinner until late. So i decided on a banana with some almond butter. I ended up downing about 5-6 T of the stuff. NOT A FUN WORKOUT EXPERIENCE. So, anyone else dealing with this? Have you figured out a way to enjoy it in moderation? I already eat a really high fat diet so I'm pretty sure its not going to be fixed by adding in more fat, I think I really just love the stuff and this wouldn't be a problem if I wasn't currently trying to lean out a bit.
No announcement yet.
Nut butter binge!
