Peanut Butter Bonanza

Peanut butter, the all-american favorite.  It has a delicious nutty, saltier flavor with a deep richness.

Almond butter, a modern option.  It was a smoother, milder, sweeter taste that extends itself to many uses.

These should taste good mixed together then, right?  No, not really.  Their delicious individual tastes basically cancel each other out.  I had half a jar of each when I has at home in DC for christmas.  Instead of bringing both jars back to Virginia Beach with me, I figured I would mix them and it would be delicious.  Don’t get me wrong, it was ok, they are just both better individually.

I also have most of a jar of P.B. Loco Cookie Dough peanut butter.  This was nice for a little snack, but I knew I wouldn’t get through the jar anytime soon.  So I decided to mix them all together!

Lots of nut butter

Honestly, this wound up great!  The chocolate of the cookie dough PB brough out just enough sweetness to make this delicious.

On another note, there is a jar of almond butter in the background of that picture.  I found yesterday in the store–what’s awesome is that its CRUNCHY.  I’m a crunchy fan, and to date, all the almond butter I had tried had been smooth.  Count it!

I also purchased my Half Ironman training plan from pro triathlete Ben Greenfield the other day.  It is a 36-week plan that prepares your for an Ironman distance, but can be modified to the half Ironman distance.  I bought at  Ben has a great website as well,, where he provides great advice and information on nutrition, fitness, and health issues.  He also does a weekly podcast where he answer’s listener questions and usually features a triathlon or nutrition expert for a specific topic.  Check it out and I’ll keep you all updated on my training:
