Bars are your best bet for protein on the go: no messy powders to mix, cups to fumble with or questions about how much you’re getting. They come in every flavor imaginable, and the price is usually right. But there is one drawback. Next time you unwrap a store bought bar, take a look at the label. Chances are, you can’t pronounce all the ingredient names. And if you try to count them? It’s pretty likely you’ll reach 10, if not 15 or 20.

Peanut butter. Creamy or crunchy — it doesn’t matter to me. I can enjoy it spread on a piece of soft bread, fruit or simply heaped onto a spoon. Everyone here at Vitacost knows about my penchant for peanut butter; some would even say it borders on obsession. When I heard about powdered peanut butter, I’ll admit I was bit skeptical. But being a lover of all things peanut-flavored, I thought I’d give it a try.
Peanut butter in chili? If may sound strange, but trust me – once you try it, things will never be the same. This kicked-up, vegetarian chili recipe is packed with protein, fiber and plenty of other good things. Plus, the addition of PBSLIM saves a ton of calories over conventional peanut butter.
Saturday mornings wouldn’t be the same without pancakes! This weekend, skip the super-sweet syrup and serve these crispy, rich Coconut Corn Cakes with a side of your favorite nut butter. No milk or eggs are needed, and a scoop of protein powder added to the batter makes a delicious and healthy breakfast treat.
