Peanut Butter: Not Just for Sandwiches

Peanut Butter: Not Just for Sandwiches

Peanut butter (and almond butter) is a staple of my fitness life.  I use it for both pre-race and post-race fueling and before and after many of my other workouts.  In fact, I love peanut butter so much that the National Peanut board contacted me and asked me write a guest post about how I use peanut butter as a part of my active lifestyle.

Milwaukee Marathon 2011

My post not only details my history with pre-race fueling, it also gives you an amazing dinner recipe that includes a homemade peanut butter sauce that will taste great on just about anything.  Want the details?  Head over to Peanuts: Energy for the Good Life and read all about it.

And feel free to share here or there the different ways peanut butter or peanuts have fueled you!  Do you add it to oatmeal?  Use it as a snack?  Add it to savory dishes?  Tell me!  Obviously I want to use peanut butter as often as possible and welcome any and all suggestions.

    I'm a 30-something who decided to get off the elliptical and expand my fitness horizons. Since moving to Chicago in 2008 I've run marathons and biked miles. I've done group fitness classes and lifted weights on my own. And now I want to share my fitness finds with you!
