And Now Peanut Butter Disgusts Me

Morning! Happy Thursday 😀 Can’t believe how fast the week has flown buy. I know I always say that, but I guess it’s always supah fast when things get busy. ahem.

Last night after training I client, I decided to try out running a four mile run. If my body wasn’t up to it, I’d stop. I’ve been going light on exercise this week just to give my body a bit of a break. However, I got through the four miles and called it done. I was at about a 9:15 pace – so an easy pace for my training, and it was just the heart pumping cardio I needed.

Once I left, it was already getting a bit late for dinner. So I flew in the door, begun slamming around pots, pans, knives, and ingredients and wound up with this:



This would be (never)homemaker’s peanut sauce over some brown rice and grilled, chopped portabello mushrooms:



it was ok. The sauce was just a little too much. Too … sweet? salty? flavory? I’m not sure what was off about it.

tofu marinated in EVOO, tamari, maple syrup, and apple cider vinegar:


tasty, as always

And sweet potato fries that I sweetened up with a marinade of honey, EVOO, water, and salt.


too. much. sweet.

These dishes were good, but not good all together, ya know?

Since tomorrow at the BIC we are celebrating November birthdays for the month, it’s encouraged that everyone bring in a dish to help the celebration.

So, i finally made Mama Pea’s dough balls.



And sampled the obligatory piece of dough or two before popping them in the oven.



Then it happened.

It came on all the sudden, like a bad cold.

I think I OD’d on peanut butter.

Even now, the thought of it repulses me. I know, I know. Blasphemy! What will this morning’s breakfast consist of?! I sure don’t know!!

What’s your favorite breakfast that doesn’t contain any nut butter?

It’s going to be a busy one at the BIC today. Deadlines! Deadlines! However, tonight is Power Yoga and then dinner with the girls! 😀

  1. I ate so many of the dough balls the first day I met them that I got sick. But now… they look good again. I think I’m going to make them this morning… bahahaha.

  2. hmmm… too much pb… that sucks!

    When I’m not feeling a “sweeter” breakfast, I go for scrambled eggs and toast. It probably happens once a week or so- just to mix it up. 🙂

  3. During heavy training I have def ODd on peanut butter. Which I never thought would be possible… I NEED to make me some of those dough balls.

    My fave non NB breakfast is a whole wheat english muffin with laughing cow cheese and hard boiled egg whites

  4. I like eggs, bacon, and roasted veggies. It is so filling and satisfying and not sweet at all. I have not experienced a PB or any kind of nut butter OD…and I hope I never do!

  5. Bagel sandwich?

    Mine are vegetarian but there are many choices.
    Bagel thin, cream cheese, pepperjack, slice of tomato
    Bagel thin, one-egg omelet, cheese

  6. I hate it when I OD on foods. I usually make a quick bowl of grits or something if I don’t want pb.

  7. SAD! I’m eating PB right now. But I know it can totally get gross after a while. I notice I don’t OD too much with Maranatha brand.

  8. I like chobani vanilla yogurt topped with granola and fruit. It’s good, contains no nut butter and makes my stomach happy until lunch time:)

  9. OH NO! I don’t know what I would do if I OD’ed on peanut butter. Probably switch over to almond butter full time. Haha, jk 😉
    Oatmeal with banana? Egg on toast with fresh berries?

  10. There’s is such a thing as too much peanut butter?!? I hope the feeling passes quickly 😉

  11. I’m all-about the fried egg sammy w/ cheddar cheese and Cholula on a whole wheat english muffin. It feels bad for you…but really, it’s not.

    I still need to make those dough balls. I’ve just been TOO lazy this week. It’s like a siren song though, really.

  12. Mmm . . . I could never get enough peanut butter. Not sure how I would feel about that sauce though. I love good old eggs and bacon for breakfast. Easy and delicious!

  13. Lately I’m eating WW mini bagel with FF cream cheese and Strawberry Preserves.
