    Wow .59 for peanut powder!!! I must go to my local Asian market and see if they have it. Everything is always cheaper there- especially produce!!

    Fingers crossed for your email blasts. I feel your pain. πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for sharing about the peanut powder! I’m going to be living in Asia soon, so I’m excited to know that it might be a staple over there…

    PB2 is one of my very favorite things ever!! Love it! And I’ve found that I can handle the shipping by buying the 4-pack of jars, it lasts a long time and is well worth every penny. Have a great day!

    The idea of powdered peanuts kind of skeeves me out but I will take your word for it! Peanut butter-flavoured yogurt DOES sound delicious.

    I love mixing PB2 into my plain greek yogurt! I’ve also baked with it before (pb-banana bread, yum).

    I’m enjoying some 0% Greek yogurt + cereal + strawberries right now topped with a light layer of PB2! It’s my favorite topping for my breakfasts. So glad you found it for cheap (it does get pretty expensive)!

    Aren’t Asian groceries the best? The tofu is cheap too!

    LOL According to the package, it’s actually “Peanust Powder”.

    I ordered the PB2 samples once. Eh. I think the Asian version would make me a little nervous since they mis-spelled “peanuts” on the front. LOL Glad it worked out for you.

    Peanut powder sounds awesome! I make my own peanut butter and it’s really easy – you just put dry roasted unsalted peanuts in the food processor and process til butter. But if you would stop the process earlier you would have peanut powder! Way cheaper and still really easy! I can’t wait to try it!

    funny you say that, because i’m actually having my first PB2 experience right now! i mixed it into some overnight oats, and DANG, is it delicious. i like how the peanut flavor spreads throughout the entire bowl, and isn’t just in little pockets.

    That looks delish! I want to try PB2. I also happened to make a yogurt parfait for breakfast this morning. It’s so much fun to eat something so pretty for breakfast.

    I won a PB2 in a giveaway a year ago – its just eh, so I wouldn’t seek it out – not when there are so many good nut butters out there!

    Happy Friday! Since you are working from home this morning, you better still be in your pajamas!

    Your parfait looks so yummy! And I definetly want to try the Peanut Powder. Sounds like it would be amazing in a lot of dishes!

    I’m pretty sure that PB2 has been processed so that some/most of the fat is removed. Seems kinda ‘frankenfood’ to me. I bet your asian market ‘peanust’ powder is better!

      it has. also it has added sugar.
      and i think its pretty gross.

    OMG your idea for using Chinese peanut powder put this Asian to shame. I do SOO much shopping in Asian grocery stores and i didn’t think of buying peanut powder to substitute PB2 at all! Your GENIUS Meghann!!! Thanks for always being so inspiring, whether it be fitness or food. πŸ™‚ I love mochi rolled in peanut powder and crushed peanuts. Its reaallly good stuff. Even better if you make the mochi yourself and stuff PB ice-cream in the middle!! hehehe

    Happy Friday pretty one!!

    What style of Vera Bradley bag is your blue one? Ever since they’ve gotten rid of the Tic Tac Tote I’ve been trying to find a good replacement for a school tote. The last one I ordered was big enough for me to sit in! haha

    I love stuff like the peanut powder, too! Tien Hung is also my favorite Asian market and was very close to my aunt’s house!

    Here in Asia (or at least where I live in Japan), labels aren’t as important as in the US. Things are often left off of them left and right, according to many of my co-workers. MSG is left off of many things. The few migraines that I’ve had in Japan have come from products that likely have MSG but leave it unlisted. Ingredients are left unlisted just to simplify things, and of course it makes exporting much easier!

    There are probably more than peanuts in the peanut powder. The ingredients are probably all fine, but there’s probably salt added, etc. It’s still a lot healthier than most junk food (okay, 90%) in the US, though.

    Your “calzone” looks amazing!! thanks for the idea, I have some pita in the frigde, so I know now what I’m gonna do with them..hey hey!! I don’t have tempeh (never tried actually), but I guess turkey or chicken will do the trick!
    have a nice day…

    uh oh! I think one of the ingredients got lost in translation! since I can read chinese the asian ingredients list translates to: Peanuts, Fine ground sugar! not trying to scare you but thought you might be interested know~ Crazy, never knew that they could hide ingredients like that when translating it.

    I’ve totally got to find that peanut powder…I feel the same way about the PB2, I went to their website and couldn’t bring myself to spend that much $$ on something new!
