I only eat natural peanut butter. No salt or anything added. Just peanuts made creamy. It's so good I usually can't stop when I start eating it. So I try to limit it to once or twice a week. It does stick with you for a while. I refuse to eat anything processed, so if they didn't sell this, I wouldn't eat it peanut butter at all. I like to snack on strawberries or grapes at night if I need to.

I made hummus this week, which is ground chickpeas and tahini. I added a green pepper and some onion to the blender, so it gave it a nutritional boost.

Baba ganouj is also another way to get a vegetable in ... it's an eggplant dip with tahini.

Both recipes can be found with a google search. I eat both dips with sliced vegetables or sometimes pita or homemade corn chips (corn tortillas cut into wedges and baked).

I have never been a nut eater but have recently been taking almonds and dried plantain chips for snacks at work. I have found I don't get drowsy like I used to and no longer have a need for coffee to stay awake. I work graveyard so staying awake was always an issue for me.
