Do you have a favorite peanut butter? I have to be honest and say that at points in my life PB was not a priority. I would just buy whatever was cheapest. I no longer think this way. Now, I look for more in my PB.
The other day I was wondering the aisles at Sam’s Club. I do occasionally purchase clothing – designer label with bargain price tag – and almost always purchase staples such as bread at Sam’s. I am not a huge big box or membership shopper but today, I needed bread, feminine products and bottled water.
As I went down an aisle looking for something – I truly cannot remember what, I saw this peanut butter. I stopped. It was not the huge size that is normally carried at Sam’s Club. It was not a double package. It also was under $4. This peanut butter is called Naturally More.
Now, a few days after opening the new PB, I am a huge fan and am going to put it to the ultimate test this weekend. First, why am I a fan? One of the biggest issues in American diet is the lack of fiber. Lack of fiber – or as your mother may have called it, “roughage” – causes all kinds of health issues. The biggest issue is constipation. Other health issues and diseases have been linked in various ways to lack of dietary fiber. This PB has 50% more fiber in it than regular PB. I also look for food items that have a good deal of protein in them so as to offer staying power. This PB has 25% more protein in it.
So, for the ultimate test, I am going to have bagel with Naturally More PB on it prior to my 20K race this Saturday morning. I have a true issue with getting enough food in my system prior to long runs in the summer. I don’t like eating when I first get up but I need to this Saturday as the race, which thankfully is local, starts at 7:30 am.
I strongly suggest you all look for, and try, Naturally More peanut butter.
