Happy National Peanut Butter Day!


I am writing to you from my couch to wish you a a wonderful day dedicated to this addictive and delicious food!  Why my couch?  Well, let’s see…Monday was CrossFit, Tuesday 90 second running intervals along the indoor track, and this morning another indoor track for a 45 minute run!




Needless to say, my body is screaming at me!  I have muscles that I didn’t even know existed that ache, but I feel GREAT!  Welcome back to strength training.  I wasn’t able to fit another CrossFit or Hot Yoga into my schedule this week, but I more than made up for it with running. 


So…back to the real reason for this post…Peanut Butter!

Or more specifically National Peanut Butter Day.  I’d recommend starting with your own homemade version.  Then use it in one of the amazing recipes below.
