Vegan Peanut Butter Protein Review

I love peanut butter, but, like all nut butters, it has a lot of calories for such a small portion (2 tablespoons is 180 calories). Tone it Up has a vegan peanut butter protein powder, with 90 calories, 15 grams of protein from peas, and pumpkin seeds; with just 2 grams of net carbs.
