OK, so I have been on this rant about eating healthier and how my cupboards are ridding themselves of the garbage that is lined with preservatives and such forth, but pray tell, there is a culprit lurking in the wings. It's peanut butter. Correct me if I am wrong but but peanuts are supposed to be good for you. But thee other day I opened up the cheap-o peanut butter that was in our pantry and I about had a fit. I read the ingredients
2) Sugar (but I bet they tout that it is not HFCS)
3) Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (WHA T THE HECK!)(Rapeseed, Cottonseed, Soybean)
4) Dextrose (I know this is some form of sugar)
6) Monoglycerides (Again, what the heck are these puppies)
Here was the weird part. Savanah and I had gone shopping this last visit and purchased a brand that was more natural, with no HFCS and one that we could read all the ingredients and actually know what they were. There were still sugars in there, but not the highly processed ones you find in everything else.
We used to be huge peanut butter eaters, but like other things since eating healthier, we have cut back on many things. We have went from 2&1/2 dozen eggs per week to under 1 dozen. That's a major improvement. So this will be the last jar of garbage peanut butter in our home and on to bigger and healthier butters.
Stupid peanut butter companies
