    Why I Love Peanut Butter

    I'm at it again! This time I'm ranting about peanut butter.

    I hate peanuts (and PB) the version of a PB&J I grew up with was butter and jelly on toast… man that stuff was heaven. To be fair though, I don’t really like any nut or nut butters.

    My first American PB&J was a huge disappointment, same goes for cream cheese... and pancakes… basically everything my American friends couldn’t believe I had never eaten and forced me to try.

    I also love peanut butter, but I've mostly given it up since I started eating Primal. Too much omega-6 to indulge in on a regular basis (but this is true for all nuts other than macadamias). I think I recognize the jar in your hands (TJ, yes?) They have the best price on PB for sure. I think it was like 1.79/jar when I used to load up on it.

    Dude, I need to develop that dislike. I've gotten a lot better over the past year or so (basically I jut don't buy nuts as often), but I still love all kinds of nuts and nut butters.

    you primal blasphemer you!

    I never had PB & J growing up. I like natural peanut butter, but I hate peanuts. Weird I know. But nothing tastes worse to me than Thai with peanuts or peanut sauce. But a spoon of PB on apples...yeah I like that.

    What about the aflatoxin concerns? (It's a carcinogenic mold that grows on peanuts.)

    I admit that I enjoy peanut butter, but I find almond butter very nearly as good. I don't really eat peanut butter anymore.

    Y'know, if someone put a gun to my head and said I had to eat one of two things or they'd kill me - catshit or peanut butter - there's an outside chance I'd eat the catshit but I'd probably take the bullet instead. The peanut butter would never be considered.

    Only slighty exagerated; I hate peanuts that much.

    It’s not exactly a dislike, I just grew up without them so I never developed a taste for them I guess. I’ve eaten walnuts, macadamia nuts, almonds, peanuts, etc and just didn’t find them special. The info regarding some of the bad stuff about them (which I don’t think we need be so alarmist about) just makes it easier to not eat them.

    Nutella though… I know it’s not really a nut butter so I’m not comparing it, but just saying I can eat that all day long, and have, many times.

    PB fits nicely into the 80/20 rule, right?
    It is best eaten w a spoon.
