It is indeed time to refresh some of Nora’s mainstay foods. This morning I discovered that we were nearly out of our peanut butter-butter mix. This is a quick and easy way to deliver a lot of fat and it’s perfect for delivering her crushed multivitamin (1/2 of an adult Centrum every other day. Guess what–kid’s vitamins have carbs!)
Adding the flaxseed meal adds fiber. All of the carbs in flax meal come from fiber, so adding a bit of flax doubles the fiber (0.8 g fiber per serving) without added net carbs. Sneaking in as much fiber as possible helps with the inevitable constipation on this diet. And it gives the mix a little thickness that is nice for serving.
Serve it with a few apple slivers (12-15 g gives you 2-3 thin slices, 1.5 g net carbs), or on a flacker.
Peanut butter-butter (makes about 20 tablespoons):
1/2 c butter (softened for easy stirring)
1/2 c natural peanut butter (I use creamy Adams)
1/4 c Flaxseed Meal
Mix well and serve. 1 Tablespoon per serving.
Net carbs = 0.8 per Tbsp
