Love wrote:I still do a teaspoon of tahini in my evening salad . That's all the fat I'm getting. I don't know yet if I'm going to outgrow that. At least my fat consumption is drastically reduced. I'd love to spread almond butter on a banana for a snack just once or twice a month, but it's kinda hard to just use small amounts like that. Oh, I guess I could grind it myself at the store for tiny amounts. I mean, if that's what we do when we're feeling wild and crazy just occasionally, we're doing pretty good, aren't we?
veggie lover wrote:Hmmm, well I don't have any weight to lose and I'm in excellent health. But I do admit, I probably eat more nut butters than I should. I'm an avid cyclist and often go on 35, 50 or 70 mile bike rides (or more!). I avoid all those store bought "energy" bars but I really like half of a peanut butter, honey and raisin sandwich mid ride. Perhaps I should eat a "Mighty Muffin" (Engine 2 recipe) instead. I also take a banana and/or a peeled and sectioned orange on bike rides. I like participating in a form of exercise where I get to eat while doing it!
