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.)
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!)
- 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?
