Peanuts are a great source of protein. We need protein to help us build muscles, tissues, enzymes, and nutrient-carrying protein molecules.

Hungry? How About Some Powdered Peanut Butter?

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueFood

Powdered Peanut Butter

Okay! So! It might sound weird at first, but when you start to hear about the versatility of powdered peanut butter — you might be sold!

If you want some spreadable, old fashioned, peanut butter, all you have to do is add some oil and water. Boom. Normal spread.

If you want to liven other things up, just add a spoonful!

We're talking:

Ice Cream
Coffee
Milk
Cereal
Etc.

Boom. Peanut buttery taste!

What a neat idea! Jars of it go for about $8 bucks right now, but if it gets popular, we totally see that coming down.

WE want some! It also has 85% less fat calories!

Democrats Attempt To Pass Food Safety Bill

Filed under: Food

Democrats attempt to pass food safety bill

Democrats are aiming to vamp up the Food and Drug Administrations powers to keep food safe by passing a bill that allows $1.4 billion to increase inspections of food facilities, place stricter standards on imported foods and give the agency broader authority to order a recall.

The bill stalled after the Senate overwhelmingly passed it last week because the bill contained fees that are considered tax provisions and under the Constitution such legislation must originate in the House.

The bill would also require larger producers to keep detailed food safety plans and follow stricter standards for keeping food safe, which is leading many supporters to say passage is critical after widespread outbreaks of salmonella and E. coli in peanuts, eggs and produce.

Republican opponents of the bill say the new FDA oversight would be burdensome for farmers and also blocked the bill for months because "it wasn't paid for".

What do U think? Do U support this bill or do U think it is more wasteful spending by the government?

Mr. Peanut Gets A Makeover

Filed under: Robert Downey Jr.Food

mr-peanut-gets-a-makeover

When we first heard about Mr. Peanut getting a makeover we were skeptical. But then we heard that Robert Downey Jr. is doing the voice-over for the animated character in a new commercial and now we're totally stoked about it!

The new version of Mr. Peanut will be a little more realistic — he will be brown instead of yellow and will wear a gray flannel suit (instead of being stark naked).

The funny new commercial will come out tomorrow, and we can’t wait to see it!
