Peanut Butter & Jenny Presents: A Nutty Love-y

(Psst. Hi Gourmies- Jenny is going to share a little poetic insight with us today. Not only do Jenny and I share the same name… we share the same love. Curious? Read on.)

Some call it an addiction…

…I call it love.
I have had a love/love relationship with peanut butter ever since my days as a tot. I fondly remember bringing a PB&J sandwich to school everyday in my quintessential LLBean lunchbox with my initials embroidered on the front, of course. Those days, it was Jif – today, though my palate has matured, my undying some for the PB has not. Cinnamon Raisin Swirl, Dark Chocolate, Maple, Honey, Butter Toffee (to name a few) have grown to be the object of my affection. 
But why peanut butter? What is it about this nutty snack that makes me swoon at the mere thought of it? 
A few things…
1. It’s taste. PB is the great unifier, as it appeals to sweet and salty loves alike. Use it on oats, crackers, desserts, hell – even spaghetti. Whatever it’s canvas, Peanut Butter never fails to shine through in all of it’s nutty splendor.
2. It’s nutritional stats. Protein/Fiber/Healthy Fats/Omega 3s… enough said.
Peanut Butter is the “Edward Cullen” of foods.. sheer perfection.
Not a day goes by when I don’t consume at least 2 Tbsps of my nutty better half. As a result, I feel stronger, more energized, and healthier than I ever have in my life. It tastes fabulous AND makes me strong? It’s as though I have my own chef and personal trainer compact in a little jar. I love!
Though I must be honest, PB & I have not always had such a beautiful relationship. As we all know, there was a period in my life when I went through some issues and struggles and put PB on the back burner. But as a loyal and faithful companion, PB has remained by my side; waiting for me to come to my senses and realize how utterly amazing it is. Now that I have, I am never going back to life without.. PB&Jenny forever.
