This is definitely NOT a vlf food, but there have been a couple of posts from
peanut butter lovers or people who are trying to move their loved ones in the
direction of lower and lower-fat diets. For this purpose, I tried something
I ran across in Prevention. It's not exactly the real thing, but it's a help
for those of us who can't find defatted.
Drain and rinse a 15oz can of small white beans and smash with a fork. (I
found the back of a spoon to be more efficient AND great therapy.)
Thoroughly mix in 2T peanut butter (just one regular serving!) and store in
I figure this reduces the calories by about 2/3 and the fat content per
serving by about 80%. The taste is milder and the texture very thick but if
you put it in a sandwich it's not as noticeable. Still too high for LF
purposes, but a step in the right direction for the SADists we love.
