Peanutty!

So after reading Julie Go Lean's blog (http://www.juliegolean.com), I discovered the wonders of Peanut Flour. I searched high and low around Omaha and could not find a carrier. I searched on the web and found it on http://netrition.com. I paid $11.00 total for the product. Last night it arrived, and I am now on a Peanut feast! This product is awesome, for 1/4 cup serving it contains 110 calories, 16 grams of protein, 4 grams of fat, and 8 grams of carbs. Immediately I went to work with this tasty stuff!I made some frozen peanut flour candy (Julie Go Lean) with 1/4 cup peanut flour, 1/4 cup water and a couple of packets of splenda. Mixed the batter together and froze it for an hour. I added some into my nightly snack of yogurt...




This morning I put a couple of tablespoons into my yogurt, oats and protein powder mix. It really thickens up the mixture.




I am excited to try it in some pancakes and also make some "cookie dough" out of it. YUM!! I love finding new products to try, especially when they are healthy!!

Questions: What are your newest favs nutrition wise?



Do you ever wonder why you workout if it just makes you sore?
