Oh hey there, it’s me, Sassy. I know it seems like I’ve fallen off the face of my blog, but have no fear, I’m back. I needed a break and wanted to spend the time I was blogging on finding ways to expand and grow my business. It’s AMAZING how much there is out there to help grow and expand your business so to say the least I’ve been busy.
That all being said, one of my outlets (besides fitness) for stress is cooking. I love to meal plan, meal prep and cook. I love cooking for myself but I especially like cooking for others. So, lucky you I’ve been saving up a TON of recipes to share with you guys over the next few weeks. I’ve also been working with a few brands behind the scenes and will have some fun new giveaways and recipes coming at you.
We’ll start today with my high-protein peanut butter cookie dough dip thanks to PBfit who sent me some samples to try a while back.
I help all of my clients plan ahead. That is honestly one of the keys to success. If you fail to plan then you can plan to fail. It’s a harsh statement and sometimes overused BUT it’s the gosh darn truth. So, I hadn’t really planned ahead with the blog. Sure, I planned WHAT I wanted to make and write about but didn’t put it on paper on my schedule. So you know what happened?! Nothing.
The good news is that the PB&J Overnight Oats have been a HUGE hit and I have plenty of content from my 100 day challenge so it gave people time to catch up. However, I need to get back to planning ahead because I love providing you guys with education, content and recipes and I need to listen to my own advice. I even purchased this meal planner and this monthly calendar to keep me on track, if you’re interested.
National Peanut Butter Day
That all being said, I remember hearing that National Peanut Butter Day was this week. It got me excited because I love peanut butter and I thought “this is the perfect day to come back to the blog.” Not to mention PBfit had sent me samples that I had lost in the back of my HIGHLY UNORGANIZED pantry and I just re-found it.
I guess all it takes is some peanut butter to help me plan ahead and get things done, so thank you peanut butter, you’re the real MVP here.
Let’s celebrate National Peanut Butter Day with a brand spanking new recipe what do you say?! I say, HOORAY FOR NEW RECIPES THAT HAVE PEANUT BUTTER IN THEM. Okay, I’m excited and hope you read that as me shouting because that’s 100% what I was doing.
Ok, back up, what is PBfit you ask? Great question it is basically peanut flour. So, peanuts that have been ground up and are in powder form. The oil is pressed out of them so that the powder has 87% less fat and is still rich in protein. Why is this a good thing?! Because I find OFTEN that many of my fitness go’ers and athletes are LOW in protein and cannot figure out why they aren’t seeing improvements in their performance and/or body composition.
Protein is usually the answer. I had written off peanut powder for a while but decided to give it a shot. Yes, it is a processed food, however, it has real ingredients, is convenient and can 100% fit into a balanced real food approach. If you find you are always struggling with feeling fully satisfied and/or meeting your protein needs, this may be a good option for you. Mix it with greek yogurt and BAM! you’re all set.
High-Protein Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Dip
I get asked all the time for great options for snacks and pre/post workout food ideas. THIS my friends is going on your list. It is high in protein and pairs nicely with carbs like fruit and/or sweet potatoes. You can eat it any time of day and enjoy it as a snack, dessert, pre/post workout fuel, etc.
Ideally if you are using this pre workout you are consuming it approximately 2 hours before so you have time to digest it and utilize it. Otherwise enjoy it any time of day and treat yo self to this tasty peanut butter cookie dough dip .
I personally paired this with a sliced apple (that I sprinkled some extra PBfit on but you can enjoy it with a spoon, with a pear, with some carrots, maybe some celery, a rice cake, sweet potato, the possibilities are endless.
Pro Tip: top with your favorite nut/seed butter to make this even more filling.Print
