Sunland Inc. Peanut Butter

Posted on

Sweeeet LORDDD.  This Peanut Butter is in a league all its own.  Thank you so much to Brittany for hooking me up with some Sunland Inc. Peanut Butters to try & feature on the blog.  Let me just preface by saying, never in my life have I tried a peanut butter as decadent.  It tastes completely sinful.

The flavor infused lineup.

Sunland Inc. I was sent four of the following infused peanut butter flavors:  Banana, Dark Chocolate, Raspberry, and Cranberry Vanilla.  Sunland Inc. also makes Almond Butter, Natural Peanut Butter, along with other flavor infused versions including Cinnamon Currant, Spicy Soutwestern, Sweet Molasses, Thai Ginger & Red Pepper, Caramel, Cinnamon, Onion Parsley, and Hickory Smoked!

They also hooked me up with a little bag of their Roasted In-Shell Valencia Peanuts!

They were absolutely fantastic and totally unique.  Different than any other peanut I’ve ever tasted.  These little gems have a sweet, intense flavor that really distinguishes their roasted taste!

The flavor infused peanut butters were simple indescribable, but for readers’ sake, I’ll do my best.  Ooh. Eem. Gee.  Seriously the best peanut butter I’ve ever had.  I think the Banana and the Dark Chocolate were tie for my favorites.  They were each VERYYY creamy and spreadable.  Phenomonal melted as well. 

I used them for everything!  I think I might’ve become a little obsessed.  Anything and everything you can imagine tastes good with this peanut butter.  Apples, carrots, wraps, oatmeal, cereal, bagels, celery, cucumbers, turkey, and the list goes on!  Love, love, love this stuff.  I even ate it straight from the jar.  My will power has NEVER been so tested.

Made from All-Natural Roasted Valencia Peanuts, the nutritional facts for each 2 tbsp. serving of these peanut butters varied from 170-180 calories, 13-16g of fat, 2-3.5g saturated, 6-7g protein, and 2g of fiber

Do yourself a favor and check out there online store where you can order your own jar of heavenly peanut butter!  I swear you will NOT regret it.  Just one taste and you’ll be convinced!  Thanks again, Brittany!

I can’t believe the first week in March is already coming to an end…It’s like the older you get, the faster time goes…

I’m still not feeling too great, so last night in between biking sessions, I honored my cravings.

Bagels

When I got home from work around 4:30PM, I had a bagel thin with banana peanut butter, a peach,  and a few baby carrots.  These things are awesome!  I just picked them up at the store yesterday on my lunch break at work and they definitely did not disappoint.  I knew they would be similar to sandwich thins, but they DID have a chewy bagel taste to them. SO yum.

Then I got on the stationary bike and set up a Facebook account for Freckled Foodie while I was biking.  I took a break around 5:45PM to chat with the family while they ate their lasagna dinner. 

I ate a Voskos yogurt at the table with a Diet Swiss Miss packet mixed in for some faux s’mores yogurt.  Woo hoo for 24g of protein!

When I finished, it was back to work on the stationary.  It’s actually quite convenient because I can catch up on all the TV and facebook that I don’t do during the day.  Two hours is all I need.  Plus I get some cardio in! Perfect.  Although, I AM really excited to start running outside again.  It’s getting warmer, folks! [knock on wood]

After a total of 600 calories burned, I was done.  I showered and made some veggie soup with the help of my steamfresh california blend (broccoli, cauliflower, & carrots), canned mushroom, minced onion, minced garlic, & water.  Deeelish.

Green sludge.

I packed my lunch for today and showered up.  Then, I made some dessert!  A protein cookie

Banana Nut BSN Lean protein powder + water.

After mixing the protein powder with some water until thick, I stir in my fiber one, mold into cookie form, and refrigerated for a lil bit until kind of firm like a cookie!  Best dessert EVER.  I’ve also been eating these for breakfast 🙂

What better to drink with a cookie than milk?!  Unsweetened Chocolate Almond Breeze, of course!  (with a lil bitta Splenda).  I couldn’t help myself they were on sale when I stopped at the store! 

Yay for Thursday!  Make the most of this one.  Be sure to check out the awesome $40 giveaway for cookware.com on Lisa’s blog!
