Healthy PB & J

I probably shouldn't even consider this worthy of making a blog post about.  Really, it's just peanut butter and jelly.  That's easy!  Regardless, I'm here, I'm typing, and by golly a blog post is going to come out of it.

I made this for myself, but when Bonnie gets old enough to eat sandwiches it will definitely be the type of peanut butter & jelly sandwich she will be given.  "Normal" peanut butter and jelly are loaded with added sugar and other unhealthy ingredients - why give these to our kids and introduce them to unhealthy habits?!

I think we sometimes assume that eating healthy or even just eating healthier has to be complicated, expensive or a big departure from what we are used to.  That's not the case at all though!  If this idea doesn't persuade you, I'm not sure what will (but really, I think this will persuade you.) 

Healthy Peanut Butter and Jelly


The ingredients, and the steps, are about as simple as they can get (added bonus - this could absolutely be used as a lunch/snack/dinner for the 21 Day Fix!)

Ingredients:

- 2 slices of 100% whole wheat bread (I only buy bread that is 100% whole wheat/grain, and I highly recommend you make the switch if you haven't already.) Each slice would be a yellow in the Fix!

- All Natural Peanut Butter (This would count for teaspoons in the Fix - as many as you want to use that will fit into your meal plan)

- Pitted, chopped cherries (or strawberries, or blueberries, or your berry of choice!)  This would be a  purple in the Fix!

The steps are the same as any other type of sandwich - put the fillings on one piece of bread, and top with the second.  Then enjoy!

Too easy - and too tasty!  How do you make your PB&J sandwiches?  Have I convinced you to try this way out?
