WIN-It-Wednesday: Better N’ Peanut Butter

Let’s get down to the basics. Peanut butter is good, and it’s good for you – but it has way too many calories and fat for a gal like me to eat every day.

That’s why I am more than thrilled to have found a new and improved alternative… Better N’ Peanut Butter.

Better N’ Peanut Butter is gluten-free, dairy-free, and contains no cholesterol or trans or saturated fats.

Better yet … it has 85% less fat and 40% less calories than regular peanut butter.

The three varieties that Better N’ Peanut Butter comes in is: Original (with less than 3 grams of fat per serving vs. regular peanut butter that has 16 grams of fat), Low-Sodium (with 95 mg of sodium per serving), and Chocolate (a unique rich & creamy blend of chocolate & peanut butter that, believe it or not,  still has 85% less fat and 40% fewer calories than regular peanut butter! Yummy!)

Better N’ Peanut Butter is just what a gluten-free gal like me needs, especially when bathing suit season is just a few short months away.

Any way you spread it, Better N’ Peanut Butter is just plain better.

That is why I am happy to report that Better N’ Peanut Butter is this week’s WIN-It-Wednesday sponsor on BeFreeForMe. Two (yes 2!) LUCKY BeFreeForMe members will win a variety pack of Better N’ Peanut Butters (one of each flavor).

How can you win?

I love peanut butter right out of the jar or on apples slices from our yard when they are in season.

I don’t have a 6 pack yet but I’m gettign there lol I also do ABS Yoga for Beginners. I like the yoga DVD because it not only works abs but it stretches you and works your legs. I also try to walk as much as possible. Even if it’s just around the corner. I love peanut butter on green apples. Odd I know but it’s something I was given in pre school and it’s been a favorite since then.

  35. Mary Jane Says:

    I like to do my exercise in the morning. Then I like to have peanut butter with jelly on toasted round roll, or I put peanut butter on a banana. It would be great to have a better healthier peanut butter.

    I walk to my childrens’ school, even when their dad (ex-h) takes them, so I can say “Good morning!” and still get a good walk/run in!! The girls and I love to make “Ants on a log,” where you take celery sticks, put peanut butter in the middle, and then sprinkle raisins or dried cranberries on them, like ants!!

    I love peanut butter and great to know I don’t have to do without anymore. I enjoy peanut butter with apple and celery. To Keep in shape I try to let the weather dictate my day.

  43. Katie Says:

    I allow myself to read a good novel (like one by Luanne Rice) ONLY when I’m riding my stationary bike. I’m always wanting to read more, so it gets me on the bike every day. As for peanut butter, I enjoy it on rice cakes for breakfast….gives me more energy than cereal.

  44. Donna S Says:

    I stick to staying in shape by doing only those physical activities I enjoy and by diversifying them to maintain my interest, ie. run in nice weather, spin or cardio class at other times, yoga to relax,stretch and de-stress, treadmill or gym workout inbetween. It depends on what mood I’m in.
    I enjoy peanut butter the most right out of the jar in its full flavor. But a favorite snack is peanut butter, fruit preserves and a banana on a warmed corn tortilla. Yum!

  45. Nikki M Says:

    I stay in shape by playinig with my Wii; and I llllooove my peanut butter straight out of the jar, all I need is a spoon. :]

  46. LeAnn Monteiro Says:

    To keep in shape I do a 40 minute routine of cardio, lower and upper body, then core and flexibility training. When I’m done I’m SO ready for something delicious to recover. I like to use peanut butter in smoothies with a banana and some protein powder…oh so yummy and good for you too. Sometimes I’ll make it with some instant coffee to add a little boost. You can’t beat it.

  47. Mary Y Says:

    I love peanut butter on my apples. Gardening helps me stay in shape!

  48. deb button Says:

    I love peanut butter and bananas

  49. Rosalie Bullard Says:

    I love Peanut Butter. I eat it right from the jar. I sometimes put the jar in the refrigerator because I like it cold. Peanut Butter is my favorite all time food. I bought some Amish Peanut Butter last year in Arthur, IL. Of course it was great but they also put marshamallow creme in their peanut butter. I am a walker and try to walk every day at least once or twice a day. I also have a treadmill but when warm weather, sun is shining forget the treadmill. I would rather be outside walking, seeing the scenery, getting the sun and fresh air.

  50. Nana Pat Says:

    My girlfriend and I walk three times a week for about an hour to an hour and a half. Before I go I always scoop some Peanut Butter into a little zippered bag and snip a tiny bit off of one corner. (I fold the corner over with tape so It doesn’t squish out.) As we’re walking I squeeze out a little and let it stick to the roof of my mouth so I can ‘savour ‘it while we walk. The PB is always gone by the time I get home; but you can bet I turn that bag inside out , just to get the very last lick! 😉

  51. Cherryann Says:

    I walk on my treadmill, and love peanut butter & honey on whole wheat toast, or celery, apples, rice cakes and by the spoon full 😉

  52. Debi Says:

    I walk as often as I can. Use the stairs in my house when raining out. I try to eat as healthy as I can.

  53. Angie Says:

    This may sound terrible and I wouldn’t have ever tried it myself, except for the fact that my hubby has excellent taste. Peanut butter and kosher dill pickle sandwiches! Seriously, don’t knock it till ya try it and y’all know you’ve eaten some pretty iffy stuff on your way to being healthier. I’d love to hear back from people who really do give it a shot.

  54. Reva Brooks Says:

    Since Spring has just arrived and I love to work in flowers and a vegetable garden, I get a lot of exercise just doing things that I love doing. There are truly a lot of different exercises you will be doing. You will use a lot of your muscles. I love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

  55. Betty Opitz Says:

    Didn’t know there was gluten free peanut butter. Anxious to try it.
    I love peanut butter in my oatmeal that I eat every morning.
    I turn 82 this Thursday & I still walk 1 hour practically every day on my treadmill & that’s how I stay in shape.
