PB 2 Convert

Sunday marked the day I discovered the single, most deadly substance known to man: PB 2 with Chocolate. Now before you all collectively give me a “Girl, no you didn’t,” remember that I can have chocolate on Sundays (and I do take full advantage). So on Sunday I decided to give the PB 2 a whirl.

As soon as I smelled it, I was convinced this was what heaven must smell like. After the first bite, I actually began eating it with a spoon. (I’ve been known to do worse.) After I contained myself, I prepped a big bowl of oatmeal by dumping the powder straight in. I combined this with almond milk for possibly some of the best oats I’ve ever had. If you haven’t tried this stuff, you’ve been warned. Not only is the calorie content shockingly low, but there are only 3 grams of sugar in each serving. Huzzah!

Gorging aside, my end of the month running goal is rapidly approaching. I’m to have 228 miles logged by April 1 and so far, conditions look perfect to wrap up that mileage just in time. As of today, I’m at 221.10 with at least two more scheduled runs to come. Wish me luck! We’re only 243.9 miles from Rome!

My Healthy Tip of the Day brought to you by the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports:

Foods aren’t good or bad.

A healthy eating style is like a puzzle with many parts. Each part — or food — is different. Some foods may have more fat, sugar or salt while others may have more vitamins or fiber. There is a place for all these foods. What makes a diet good or bad is how foods fit together. Balancing your choices is important. Fit in a higher-fat food, like pepperoni pizza, at dinner by choosing lower-fat foods at other meals. And don’t forget about moderation. If two pieces of pizza fill you up, you don’t need a third.
