Try almond butter, it's better for you anyway.

Oh good GOD no! And if it did my life, as I know it, would be over. Seriously.

It might be the fat content. Animal fat does that to me. Can't eat fried food for that very reason.

Even the littlest bit makes me nauseaous.  I did find Sunbutter and I love it.  Just like peanut butter except it is made with sunflower seeds.  It is awesome!

So do not eat it.. lol...

On a differnt note - try other nut butters.  i can eat 1 tsp of PB, but almond butter - no problem.
I can only  eat natural (ground penuts) - no sugar or other stuff added PB.  Any commercial PB and I am in trouble.
i have no problem with using PB2

I can eat about a tsp of the good stuff, creamy jiff, and feel okay. More than that and I'm not doing well. Now, PB2 works well for me and I mix that with yogurt and shakes.

PB2 is peanut tasting powder.  I think it is mostly peanut flour.  You can add it to other foods to add the flavor of peanuts or peanut butter.  You could use it in a smoothie or yogurt, etc.  I had to purchase it online.  I do not know if it is out in stores yet or not.
