    Is there a reason why almond butter is allowed but peanut butter isn’t?

    Hi Vanessa,

    Peanuts are not on phase 1 due to their fat breakdown, and most peanut butters harbor extra fats and sugars which is why it isn’t allowed in phase 1! Hope this helps!

    Thanks Lauren! That helps. Although I did buy powdered PB that has less fat but lots of flavor. I was hoping to use it in smoothies.

    I see! Yeah it isn’ recommended in Phase 1 sadly… I love peanut butter so its tough to wait until phase 2!

    I bought the Peanut butter flavored Quest. I hope it is acceptable. I didn’t think about the peanut butter aspect but the calories, carbs and other criteria were met according to specifications in the book so I thought it would be ok. Was I wrong?

    Same here, I just ordered some of the Quest PB flavor protein powder. I figured it’s fine because it’s actually protein powder rather than powdered peanut butter. But maybe not?

    Peanut butter flavored Quest should be fine, just make sure it falls within the protein powder guidelines in the book.

    Love getting my PB fix through the quest powder. Their other flavors are great too for when a sweet craving hits. I’ve even mixed half a scoop of the PB with a half scoop of the chocolate for a “reeses” treat.
