Using Miniature Peanut Butter Cups

This will not be an option for everyone and it did take me time to find candy that was acceptable to me. I don’t use Reese’s because of the chemical preservatives in them. I also find the peanut butter very gritty. You can find all natural quality miniature peanut butter cups from Trader Joe’s on Amazon if you do not live near a store. I duly note they are really half this cost at the store so I make a lengthy trip and stock up once in a while.

Start with a wired handheld cheese slicer. Trust me…you want this. Most knives will break the peanut butter cup into pieces and it’s not very useful after you do that.

Then cut it in half slowly, carefully. You should be able to slice it right through the middle and end up with an intact lid.

Use a 1/4 teaspoon measuring spoon to scoop out some of the peanut butter. Put that in a small dish or dessert cup.

Pour in your chelator from the capsules. I have mine in pre-measured doses in a supplement caddy that is labeled with dosing times. (See here)

Add in other supplements you want in small amounts. I have added some vitamin C powder and vitamin E from a gel cap. It helps the powders blend into the peanut butter easily. This way it is not dry or powdery when eaten.

Mix it all together using the back of the teaspoon until it’s well blended. Then smear the peanut butter back into img_20170117_164817the chocolate cup bottom with the back of the spoon.

 

 

Put the top back on and it’s done!   If we have to leave the house I put one in a small container and put it inside a lunch tote with an ice pack. I almost always use vitamin C and/or E in each dose which acts like an antioxidant for the chelator. Plus it gives my child the additional supplements they need.

That ends my peanut butter cup tutorial. Nothing rocket science level here but it certainly has allowed us to chelate without being able to take capsules. He eats these at night in his sleep because he’s been doing rounds so long he’s used to it.I follow this with water. A non-spill sip top water bottle works great.
