I could eat six of this wonderful super-food and be around 1500 calories! This would still allow me to get 90g of protein a day, 72g of HIGH quality fat and 192g of carbs to get me through my workouts. It's a great source of Omega-6 and has more Omega-3 in 2tbsp of the PB than in 2.5 pounds of tuna. I found this out a long time ago. 7-Day Motivational Thread Starting 3/7/11
Sounds like a plan. And you do love your PB&J's. Why not eat something you love and benefit from it? At least short term.
