    Peanut Butter fall into the "OK" category?

    Primal Fuel
    Hey all!

    What's your point of view on eating a tablespoon or two (nomore) of beanut butter , every other day?
    I am talking about natural non-processed peanut butter without added sugar and other preservatives.

    Thanks in advance

    If I cheat it is with a few peanuts. I love almond butter, but it makes me gain weight.

    It's a legume, so not primal. But the amount you describe should be an OK 20%.

    I don't particularly like most "substitutes" but almond butter does taste better than peanut to me. (Though I don't understand people who say that after tasting almond butter, peanut butter tastes like repulsive crap and they'll never eat it again. Different strokes, I guess.)

    One great thing about almond for me is that I can get locally grown.

    I was eating up to a jar a day until I stopped recently. This amount definately gave me GI-issues. If this isn't the case for you and you can get high quality and generally control your intake (lot of if's ;p) I would treat it as any other nut/seed butter

    I'd just get almond butter. I don't see the point of peanut butter when there's is something that's easy to get and just as good. At least in my opinion. Of course, I still think nuts are something to eat in moderation so I wouldn't go crazy on the almond butter, either.

    PB isn't worth it for me personally, especially compared to almond butter.

    At the amounts you are taking it is not too big of a deal. I think the others are just pointing out that there are better options like almond butter out there.

    People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

    I use a little natural peanut butter in the evenings with celery to fill up and skip dinner.
