Your question was: Peanut butter substitutes for Nutrisystem?.
Wow, that was a great idea from Pam. You could also slightly alter her idea by using 1 Tbsp of PB2 as a free food, or 4 Tbsp of PB2 if you use it as your protein, rather than using your 1 tsp of peanut butter. (I hear you're not supposed to use multiple free foods at the same time, so it might be best to go the 4-Tbsp-as-a-protein route since you'll be doing the jam as a free food). If you're not familiar with PB2, just do a quick search on these forums, there have been several threads on it lately!..
I miss my PB&J sandwiches too. Hubby and I both like to eat a celery stalk spread with peanut butter and that covers one of the veggies at dinner as well as the fat, and also gives me some PB happiness.
I love the tuna salad and usually eat it on my sandwich thins but next time I'm going to use Pat's suggestion and get a whole PB&J sandwich. Thanks, Pat...
I had a PBJ sandwich last weekend for lunch - I used about 3 tablespoons of PB2 on 2 slices of 40 calorie/slice light whole grain oatmeal bread (that had 3 g of protein in the bread), and used a strawberry preserve I found that had 5 cal per tablespoon. Delicious!..
PB2 is amazing, and highly recommended! I LOVE peanut butter and banana on toast (yeah, yeah, sorry)...
I saved half of my protein from lunch until dinner, and had the chicken breast on my salad..so I could have the extra carb serving. Then I used one of these http://thomasbagelthins.com/ in combination with my fruit (banana) and 2 tbsp PB2...and.. OMG.. I thought I was cheating!.
I used my entire tub of PB2 already... (I only bought one to try it), and I can't wait until my next order gets here!.

I am a former "2-3 pb and banana sandwiches a day" person before NS. I have found that just the teaspoon of PB with a little jam on a roll is perfect! Just the taste of the PB without as many calories and fat! I have that now and then, and it's a special treat!..
Even though we have given you good ideas about this, here is another take on the matter:.
This might be a good time to wean oneself of those "must have" foods..
Just a thought...

That said, the samples are $3.99 for 4 servings. I would think you'd be better off just ordering it from netrition, pay the $4-5 shipping, because you will most likely like it. Even more if you like "lower sugar" peanut butter (like the white labeled Jif, which is my favorite)...
