Word Nerdery - "More Than" vs. "Over": Which is Correct?

Recipe: Creamy PB2 spread

Heart bagel

Tried an experiment for breakfast today - a creamy peanut butter-y spread on a light bagel. It turned out to be more Points(Plus) than I estimated, but still tasty.

I used PB2 powder to add peanut butter-y essence - my kids don't care for it, but I've found it useful in recipes. And it's actually fine that my kids don't like it - that means there's usually some left in the container when I go to use it!

PB2 is 1 PointsPlus (PP) for 2T powder, which is a LOT better than the more typical 5 PP for regular reduced fat peanut butter. I optimistically hoped 1T powder would be 0 PP, but alas, no (according to both the WW PP handheld calculator, and the Weight Watchers iPhone app. Darn the consistent results!)

Today's breakfast - 5 PointsPlus:

Place cheeses in small microwaveable dish. Nuke at 50% power for 20 seconds. Sprinkle PB2 & Splenda over cheeses & mix well. Slice bagel & slather with creamy peanut butter-y goodness.

5 PP is more than I like to "spend" on breakfast these days (see my 2 PP omelet, as a preferred alternative), but it was nice to change things up a bit, and I do like my peanut butter.  I think this spread would be great on a sliced apple, too, which would make it a great 3 PP snack (since an apple is 0 PP).
