Aunt Bea, have you ever tried smearing some of that peanut butter (MY favorite PB too) on pieces of apple? Ooo, yum!
I do the apple thing in the fall when they are firm and crisp.

I pour the oil off when I open a new jar so it is thicker than usual, also a few less calories.

I usually just eat it off the spoon!

I sometimes do peanuts, some dark chocolate chips, raisins tossed with chilpolte chili and sea salt in one of those pyrex little cups (1/2 cup). Otherwise, if I snack, I usually grab some raw almonds or an ounce of cheese or raw veggies/fruit or 1/2 c plain Greek yogurt or air-popped popcorn topped with curry powder or nutritional yeast, smoked oysters, a hard boiled egg. If I have made some roasted chickpeas, I'll munch on those, but I don't buy junk food, so I don't have those things in the house, so no temptation, and I don't buy ice cream. If I want ice cream, I make it. Because I eat my big meal in the morning, I don't find that I need to snack between meals--I only eat lunch and supper when I'm hungry and don't snack between those meals. Works for me.

Pour the oil off? What a great idea! Never thought of that...and it takes FOREVER to mix it in properly when you open a new jar. I had taken to storing them upside-down so that it was easier to mix from the bottom up.

My confession is after I make a PB&J sandwich I lick the knife clean before I put it in the washer. Funny how all that peanut butter sticks mos to that last knife full...

I store it upside down too, CG. Aunt Bea, pouring the oil off is brilliant! Whoda thunkit?

I like a small plate of a few Tostitos topped with shredded low fat cheese, nuke on low till melted, top with salsa and yogurt cheese or low fat sour cream. Instant nachos. Drained black beans are good on them too, also corn kernals or jalapeno slices.

I like pretzel sticks dipped in either Nutella or jalapeņo mustard, depending on my mood. Or nachos. And of course I lick the knife. It gets cleaner that way. ;-)

Now I do like the sound of pretzel in Nutella...bit of sweet and savoury

Munching on a couple Triscuits to go along with my *ahem* dessert beer. (Heck, if I'm going to have a dessert beer I should keep some Lambics on hand... ) Pretzel sticks would have been better but it seems like they evaporated from the pantry ...into Himself's tummy.
