Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

But I'm back and feeling a little more like I have things under control. I think I'm finding

Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter #EatMighty

I have been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are mine and honest in nature.

Truthfully, I didn't know that powdered peanut butter existed until I started drinking protein shakes. I enjoyed the taste of peanut butter, but I was trying to cut calories. Powdered Peanut Butter was a great fit.

Mighty Nut makes a great powdered peanut butter, but it's not just for 'protein' shakes. I'm finding that powdered peanut butter can be used in a variety of ways.

You might be saying, what exactly is powdered peanut butter?
Might Nut Powdered Peanut butter is basically peanuts that have been roasted and then pressed. What is left is protein, fiber and a peanut buttery taste. It can be re-hydrated, or it can be used in its powder form. The original is 45 calories and 6 grams of protein.

Mighty Nut Powdered peanut butter comes in 4 flavors:

  • Original
  • Vanilla
  • Chocolate
  • Flax & Chia


I tried the original and the chocolate (shocker there on that one I'm sure).

I have always enjoyed chocolate milk as my recovery drink, but I'm trying to move away from syrups. So I thought I'd try a peanut butter, chocolate milk combo instead.



And I liked it! I tossed everything in the blender, and I now have a new recovery drink. I used whole milk, but you could use any type of liquid that you prefer. Basically it was:

2 Scoops Chocolate Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter
8 oz Milk
1/2 Frozen Banana
1/4-1/2 cup of coffee
Ice 

In addition to my new recovery drink, Lil Man and I made our 'healthy' version of ice cream. It's cold, creamy and enough of a sweetness to give us that sweet taste that we both love.



3 frozen bananas
2 scoops Mighty Nut Original Peanut Butter
2 tablespoons unsweetened Cocoa Powder
About a cup of milk or so or until the desired consistency
Blend in the blender

Quick, easy and a satisfying snack.
