Is It Really THAT Simple?! Peanut Butter...

Since being diagnosed with cancer many people have suggested that I try to eat more whole foods and try to cut out added sugars, preservatives etc.  I have been experimenting with this a little, but I welcome any and all advice or suggestions! 

One thing I have been doing is making my own peanut butter.  I had no idea it was so easy!

All you need is...

- a food processor
- peanuts

Just put the peanuts in the food processor for a few minutes until it becomes creamy then put in an airtight container in the refrigerator. 

My kids seem to like it even better than the store bought stuff!


  1. That's amazing! Does it taste sweet enough? I buy Natalie the Peter Pan whipped creamy because it has less carbs and no high fructose corn syrup.

    1. It is not as sweet as the store bought kind, but sometimes I add a little brown sugar :) I am surprised at how smooth it gets, even though it has to be in the refrigerator!
      We are continuing to pray for you and sweet Natalie! I hope you all are doing well.

  2. I used to nanny for a doctors family whose wife had breast cancer. They did this as well. They ate EVERTHING that was organic. Almost everything had to be kept in the fridge because it has no preservatives in it. I'm not sure what it is about organic/whole foods and beast cancer but just wanted to let you know I've heard that before too. Read your blog and thinking about y'all! If y'all ever need any help with the kids let me know.

    1. Thanks Julie! I appreciate your thoughts and words. I hope you are doing well!
