Who agrees that peanut butter is just the gift that keeps on giving? It’s delicious, incredibly nutritious, and so easy to get your hands on.
All-natural peanut butter is packed with protein as well as LOTS of vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, potassium and zinc. It also has a sneaky way of making any meal taste AMAZING.. What’s an acai bowl without the peanut butter?!
Now, we have always loved peanut butter here at the RY HQ, however it’s become somewhat of an obsession recently thanks to our partnership with the Pic’s Peanut Butter team as part of our Autumn Box.
Ok, remove the 'somewhat'. It’s definitely an obsession.
Pic’s Peanut Butter fits our bill of all natural with no fillers or additives. Just 100% Aussie peanuts, and added to the jar immediately after roasting (which is where that delicious taste comes from)!
So, as inspired by this obsession, we thought we’d share some of the ways our team have used their Pics this season.
1. Frozen chocolate peanut butter treats...
Say whhaaaa…?! You heard it right - simply whip your peanut butter, roll into little balls, drizzle with a quality dark chocolate, and freeze. A treat that is healthy, easy & super convenient. And super delicious! Trust us - these are the BEST 3pm treat…
2. To make the popcorn bars in our RY wellness mag…
On the topic of 3pm treats - these are also AMAZING.
These Peanut Butter Popcorn Bars by Jacqueline Alwill (www.thebrownpaperbag.com.au) created on behalf of Pics were featured in our Autumn RY Wellness Mag. We’ve seen so many photos of these being recreated that we thought it would be a crime to not share it again!!

3. To make a power packed smoothie...
If you think you’ve nailed your fave morning smoothie but you aren’t using peanut butter, we URGE you to think again. Adding a small spoonful means an extra nutrition hit, plus it tastes AMAZING!
A basic blend is:
4. Satay stir-fry...
This is where things get really versatile. We often think breakfast, but think again.
Everyone loves satay sauce, and you can make a very simple, healthy version at home using your Pics.
Simply grab half a cup of peanut butter, add half a cup of coconut milk and a few tbsp water, and you have a satay sauce base. Up the flavour by adding a couple of cloves of garlic, a tbsp tamari and a couple of teaspoons of sriracha for some spice. Marinate your chosen protein or add to a stir-fry.
5. Peanut butter dip...
We were going to leave #5 as 'straight outta the jar', celery stick or on it’s own. But this one is such a goodie that we couldn’t leave it out.
Mix peanut butter with greek or coconut yoghurt to desired consistency, and add some honey to sweeten if desired, and serve up with your arvo carrots & capsicum sticks. The hummus can wait until next week ;)

With a wide range of emotional and physical benefits there's a lot of hype around essential oils and with good reason!
If you're new to the world of essential oils and are wondering what all the fuss is about and how you can you use these wonderful bottles of goodness in your life, then read no further!
When we come across a company who encourage consumers to use something as simple as enjoying a beverage as an opportunity to stop, breathe & refocus, it's no wonder we get excited!
Because focusing on wellness should fit into your everyday life.
Which is exactly why we chatted with Jay Tombleson, one of the Invention Managers behind True Water's refreshing sparkling drinks.
When you were in high school we bet waking up with a huge pimple on your face meant you'd spend half the morning trying to cover it with concealer and wind up late for homeroom! Plus clog your poor skin some more!
While for some of use those days are now few and far between, it's common for women with mature skin to begin breaking out.
The questions is, why is this happening outside of our teens?
