Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter Deliciousness (Giveaway!)

I received Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter product to review via my association with Fit Approach. All opinions are, as always, my own!

Good day, lovely people! Thank you all so, so much for all of your congratulations and kind words about my race this weekend. I had such a great time, and it was so cool to run my streets! Legs are feeling good–still a bit tired, but no soreness to speak of, really! And don’t forget about the JHill Giveaway and Sitewide Discount!

If you are coming over here for the first time from Fitful Focus, welcome welcome! If you are joining me here, first, I say thank you, but be sure to check out my guest post today on Nicole’s blog: So You Ran a Marathon, Now What? Head over there after you read to see what I recommend you do after you cross the finish of your goal race.

Not a bad place to start…

Either way, today, you get lots of awesomeness: double Suz, a little bit of fitness, a little bit of healthy living, and the chance to win one of my favorite products!

So, over here, let’s talk food!

The Intersection of Desire and Reality: Fats and Flavors

I have no problem with fats: I think that they are an essential part of our diet. It is no secret that I rely on peanut butter throughout marathon training: I need the healthy fats for recovery and calories for refueling.

A late brunch at Yolk Cafe Streeterville. The Iron Man egg white omelette and Irish Benny eggs benedict. Excellent pre marathon fuel! For more on Chicago Marathon and places to eat in Chicago, check out Suzlyfe.com

And sometimes before running! (This was loaded with avocado)

That said, as I have also touched on before, my body doesn’t process fats as well as the normal person, and my palate reflects this: I am not a big rich and heavy foods person: you can keep your oily cheeses (I only have eyes for my The Laughing Cow!), your fatty meats, your unctuous “gourmet” indulgences. There are seriously times when I have to look away from the shows showing gluttonous foods. 

And thus leaves us at the intersection of desire: I would love a good mock Pad Thai! With reality: I would be in some serious hurt if I ordered that at a restaurant.  My savior? Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter!

Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter 

Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter is a fantastic, gluten free, and vegan alternative to typical peanut butter and nut butters. High in fiber, protein, and flavor, and low in fat, Might Nut is beyond versatile! Learn more at Suzlyfe.com

Powdered peanut butter is a great friend to Suz: it gives me all the flavor, protein, fiber, and texture of regular peanut butter, but it allows me to control the fat content. Thus I can make Alex my mock Pad Thai with regular Peanut Butter & Co peanut butter (maybe even with their spicy version!), while I can make the same sauce for me using the Mighty Nut powdered peanut butter in a way that my body can digest. 

But Mighty Nut powdered peanut butter isn’t just for us “special” folk. Not many people want to cook or bake with protein powder, so powdered peanut butter is a fantastic high-protein substitute. 

The ultimate healthy "indulgence" : Vegan, Gluten Free Chocolate Hazelnut Peanut Butter made with Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter is full of flavor, fiber, and protein and perfect for toast or any other healthy snack you might want to spread it on! Find the recipe at Suzlyfe.com

Want to make flavored peanut butter but don’t want to go through the rigmarole of getting out your blender and peanuts? Mighty Nut Powdered peanut butter offers you a perfect chance to display your creativity (I’ll show you how in a moment!). 

So let’s find out a bit about Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter:

  • Gluten Free
  • Non-GMO Certified
  • Vegan
  • Made in America
  • Per Serving (2 TBSP)
    • 5 g protein
    • 1-1.5 g fat

  • 4 flavors:

I chose to have some fun with the Mighty Nut Flax and Chia. I’m usually pretty good about getting in my Omega-3s and fiber, but I loved that this had it built in. :

We’ve blended our powdered peanut butter with tasty flax and chia to add fiber and nutrients to this yummy mix. With 5g of protein per serving, Mighty Nut Flax & Chia powdered peanut butter is an easy and delicious way to add protein to any meal or snack. Mighty Nut Flax & Chia can be rehydrated and used as a spread or dip, or as an ingredient in baking, cooking or smoothies. Source
