When can we have Peanut Butter? ?

This question is best answered by your doctor or nutritionist. All doctors have their own program of what you can and can't eat. However, keep in mind that Peanut Butter is very high and fat so keep that in mind once you have the OK to have some. One item you may want to consider, if on a stage where you are drinking shakes try PB2. This is an ingredient to add to shakes with ALL of the FAT removed. It's in powerder form. Adding it to a chocolate shake tastes just like a reese's peanut butter cup. Enjoy!

I used a little Peanut Butter blended into a Protein Shake while I was on pureeds, didn't have any problems, but I don't think it would be good to have straight peanut butter till released to whole foods. Best bet is always to ask your dr or nut since they seem to have varying policies on everything. Good Luck.

I didn't eat Peanut Butter till I was at goal. It's very calorie-dense and doesn't offer much in nutritional value, in my opinion.

Now that I am at goal, it's a treat food. I like it on graham crackers. Sometimes I put cut up banana on top.

I was having some (creamy, not crunchy) the first week as it is an easily digested soft Protein, so it should work well for whenever your doc permits soft Proteins (and arguably purees.) I dropped if fairly soon thereafter in favor of denser proteins as I could tolerate them due to its high caloric content and didn't have it much until maintenance.

I love Peanut Butter, I eat it a lot. I do have PB2, but the regular stuff is my fave. I love fat, I eat a lot of it!

This is something to take up with your NUT, because every office handles this differently. I am not allowed Peanut Butter but my NUT is totally on board with PB2. Like others have mentioned it is powdered peanut butter. It has 85% less calories & fat than regular peanut butter. You can mix it with a small amount of Water to use it like peanut butter. It is great mixed with shakes. My favorite way to use it is in plain, fat-free greek yogurt. I mix 6 oz of the greek yogurt with 1 packet of Truvia & 2 tbsp of PB2. Very delicious!

i dont use Peanut Butter but instead i use PB2 of any other powdered Peanut Butter. I started using them at stage 2 soft foods.

Like ^ she said. Pb 2 has 85 percent less fat and when mixed tastes just like reg to me. I also love the chocolate pb2! Makes a great add into Protein shakes

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
