Me, a blender and powdered peanut butter...

I can't believe the weekend has come and gone already! This one went faster than usual because it was jam packed with working out, shopping (6 hours to be exact) sushi and drinks with my girlfriends.

Speaking of shopping, my favorite purchase of the weekend wasn't a clothing item, or a pair of was a blender.


Yea I said it, a blender...THIS blender to be exact::

I was debating it for a good 30 minutes in Bed, Bath and Beyond. I kept asking my fiance if it was a silly purchase and a waste of money but in the end this little guy came home with me and I couldn't be happier.

If you're like me and you have no extra time in the mornings, this is your new best friend.
You can blend your shake right in the travel cup!
I know this may not seem exciting to some of you, but to me it was like Christmas had come all over again.

My second favorite purchase of the weekend?

Chocolate PB2

If you've never seen or heard of this product before, here is a little background information:
(taken from the website)
It is peanut butter in powdered form. PB2 has the same consistency as full fat peanut butter with all of the natural roasted peanut flavor, but with nearly 85% less fat calories. PB2 is made with high quality peanuts that are slow-roasted to our specifications and pressed to remove the oil. All natural with no artificial flavors,sweeteners, or preservatives. PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter is mixed with water to create a traditional peanut butter mixture. It also works and tastes wonderfully in recipes that call for the use of peanut butter.
 You can purchase a pack of 4 for $15.95! Which is a fantastic price considering I paid $6.75 for one at my local health food store-grrr (Click here to purchase!!)

The website offers a variety of products AND they have a recipe section which I suggest checking out if you are a peanut butter fanatic like myself :)

 I bought this to use in protein pancakes, shakes, baking, etc and it tastes amazing. 
Bonus: 2 tablespoons is only 45 calories!!!

 So my shake this morning(that took me 30 seconds start to finish)
2 scoops chocolate whey protein powder
2T PB2 chocolate flavor
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
handful of ice

So delicious, and so nutritious
