Leading a healthy lifestyle always tops in my bucket list but eating greens is not enough for those who are born with a palate of sugary and fatty spreads. I believe that dieting is a struggle, and if you are as bipolar as me when it comes to sticking to one, then you’ll need to find something that add sparkles to your boring vegetables and chicken breast diet, and I think I found a snack that perfectly fits the need.

Meal replacements have been around for ages now, from healthy shakes to power sips that boost your energy, to countless flavours of protein shakes. For me, I could go on without shakes and protein cocoa bars, but I cannot live without my peanut butter spread. So this week I’m taking you to Fat Fit supplement and nutrition store for my personal favourite protein peanut and almond butters. Prepare your taste buds for a yummy explosion with Nuts ‘N More.

Nuts ‘N More is a USA brand that makes tasty protein-filled peanut butter and almond butter spreads in a selection of flavours, some of which you’ll be surprised they even exist, and guess what? They taste just like your typical peanut butter, only healthier and tastier. These protein-based snacks have great nutrition value, which is 7 grams of protein per tablespoon, and it’s also low in carbohydrates, making it a great option for those in a low-carb diet. On their line of flavours they have, you will find interesting combinations that will take your morning breakfast to another level. Flavours such as cookie butter, pumpkin spice, chocolate, salted caramel, white chocolate, toffee crunch, cinnamon raisin, chocolate almond, and of course, plain peanut butter among others can be found at the store.

The best part about these butters is that you can actually try them before making a purchase. I tried four flavours so far. I had a container of chocolate, toffee crunch, cookie butter, and cinnamon raisin. My absolute favourite is cookie butter. I love cookies, and now to be able to spread it on my bakes is a true joy. Chocolate peanut butter gives you a blend of cocoa and nutty flavour. It’s not your Nutella, but for the sake of a healthy replacement, it’s worth it. Then you have the cinnamon raisin. The strong flavour of cinnamon mixed with peanuts is a match made in heaven, definitely becoming a staple in my diet. The last flavour I tried toffee crunch, it’s a sister to cookie butter, worth



trying too. I can’t wait to try white chocolate and salted caramel, these two look super interesting taste-wise.

Now that you know where to get your low calorie spread, let me warn you that you can easily over eat peanut butter. Though it’s low in calories, it doesn’t mean it’s empty calories, so take it easy and have a couple of spoons max when eating, at least that’s what I do.

Forget about your sunny side-ups and hash potatoes, and enjoy this creamy treat on a toasted brown bread for breakfast. Sometimes I would blend it with my protein shake or coffee, and it tastes delicious.
