PB2

I just wanted to share my new favorite food item with you all.

I LOVE peanut butter, but all the fat and calories, not to mention the ingredients I can’t read, let alone know what they are…not a fan of.

A customer of mine recently introduced me to PB2, and I will never buy processed peanut butter ever again!!

It has three ingredients…Roasted Peanuts, Sugar and Salt. And if you are a chocolate lover like me you can get it with cocoa powder. All you do is add a little water…mix, and Voila! You have rich, creamy peanut butter.

And even better…2 Tbps. of powdered peanut butter with 1 Tbps. water = 45 cal. with 1.5g fat and 5g protein. Can’t beat it!!

Delicious PB2&B with WASA Fiber Crispbread….YUM!!

Three-Cheese Pizza with Garlicky Spinach and Bacon

I got this recipe from the Weight Watchers cookbook “Tastier Than Takeout”.  It calls for turkey bacon and fat free mozzarella, but you can use the real stuff if you prefer.

INGREDIENTS:

3 slices turkey bacon, chopped

2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

1 (5-ounce) package baby spinach leaves

1 (10-ounce) prebaked whole wheat thin pizza crust

2/3 cup fat-free ricotta cheese

1/2 cup fat-free shredded mozzarella cheese

2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 450 F. Spray large baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Spray large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray and set over medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer bacon to plate lined with paper towel.

Add garlic to skillet; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until golden brown, about 1 minute. Add spinach to skillet a few handfuls at a time, stirring constantly and adding more spinach as it will fit. Continue cooking until spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes more. Stir in reserved bacon.

Place crust on baking sheet. Spread ricotta evenly over crust. Top evenly with spinach mixture. Sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan. Bake until cheese is bubbly, about 8 minutes. Cut into 8 pieces.
