NEWS FLASH:  I love peanut butter! Okay, I know that’s not news, I just had to put that out there (again). Peanut butter on a spoon.  I’ve been there, you’ve been there, we’ve ALL been there.  And while (natural) peanut butter is totally healthy, it IS really high in fat and calories. “Moderation is key!”  Yeah, […]
