The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Anyone make home made PB?

    The only place i've seen natty PB is on the net. No shop in newcastle sells it - they've all go added salt. I'd get it from the net, but i don't see sense in having a 300g £4 jar of PB being delivered to my door, so i was planning on making my own.

    I can get the nuts, but what oil is best to add? I read safflower oil, but could olive oil be used? any other oils that would work or is the choice of oil merely just for flavour?

    my natty pb is just roasted peanuts and salt.

    i'm thinking roasting the peanuts (you can do this in a skillet) will heat them up enough to release their own oils. then drop it in a blender and mush them up and you're all set.

    really?

    i was under the impression that you blizted the peanuts in a processor and gradually added some oil until a nice paste is formed.

    well spank my ass and call me Charlie.

    you shouldn't have to....peanuts have a lot of fat in them already.....i suppose if you have some skinny peanuts you could add a little canola in as you whiz it...but i don't think you'll need to do that......

    kinda like tahine...(sesame seed paste). that's just plain old sesame seeds, but after mushing thm up they become pretty oily....

    I was contemplating adding almond oil, cause there's a nice taste to almonds.

    Have you ever tried making your own yates?

    almond oil would actually be pretty cool, chigs...i think. i wonder if olive's taste might be too heavy though?

    well the amount of oil you add would depend on how thick or runny you wanted it.

    if you make it thick, then chances are you prolly won;t have added enough olive oil to disguise the taste of the peanuts. It may even compliment it nicely, but you're right, too much olive oil = overkill.

    LMAO...you shouldn't have to add any oil...there should be enough in the peanuts themselves. My natty p/b says "just peanuts" for the ingredients

    without oil:

    Place 1 1/2 c. peanuts or any variety nuts (leave skins on for increased fiber content) in a food processor or blender and "pulse" blend for 10 seconds at a time for about 1 minute. Add 1 T. boiling water (or 1 T. canola oil). Blend on high an additional 3 minutes (stopping every minute to push mixture back down). Try making almond butter or walnut or try macadamia nuts even... or mix them up.
    (makes 1 cup)



    with oil:

    Unlike nuts and seeds that are digestible raw, a peanut is a legume and like other beans it requires cooking to be digestible and flavorful. Most peanuts are sold pre-roasted. However, if you have raw peanuts, roast them by spreading in a thin layer and bake at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes for shelled peanuts, and about 25 minutes for unshelled peanuts. Stir as necessary to assure even roasting.

    Or, pan toast shelled peanuts in a wok or thin sauté pan. Stir constantly over high heat until the peanuts start to turn color. Then, reduce heat to low and continue stirring for 5 minutes or until the peanuts are uniformly golden.

    To make your own peanut butter process one cup roasted peanuts and 1/4 teaspoon salt (salt adds flavor, digestibility and helps keep it fresh) in a food processor, blender, meat grinder or nut butter machine until the nuts are finely ground. Add 1 tablespoon unrefined oil and continue processing until it reaches the desired degree of smoothness, adding more oil if necessary. For chunky peanut butter, stir in 1/4 cup roasted, chopped peanuts. Store, tightly covered, in the refrigerator. Makes about 3/4 cup

    I fell on a bag of peanuts one night and fell asleep on it. That seemed to work.


    I do believe a meat grinder will work. Best bet is a hand blender, like the kind Braun makes.

    http://www.kitchenkapers.com/braunhanblen.html

    Its a very good hand blender, but some of the other ones will chop up a Buick with ease. I have this one, its never given me any problems unless I try to chop ice cubes. Or children.

    Why not just throw some peanuts in a blender with some almonds. That worked pretty well for me. I think I added a little water but thats it.
