Now if any of you were vegetarians as kids, I bet you were fed thousands of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches just like I was. Nothing wrong with a good pb & j, but after years of this snack, it can get a little tired…
I get asked all the time, what I eat on a daily basis. Normally it's whatever I'm posting on the blog for lunch (that way I can photograph it in the natural daylight), but I do a lot of snacking. Popcorn, veggies, smoothies and peanut butter and jelly are my go-to snacks.
I use brown rice cakes instead of bread with Trader Joe's peanut butter with flax seeds and paired them with Sarabeth's strawberry and peach jam. Yummy combo! If you've never heard of Sarabeth's, it's amazing! Sarabeth is not only an incredible jam maker, she also has a slew of fabulous restaurants in New York. I used to eat at the location on Central Park South all the time. You can get any of her products on her Sarabeth's website.
Another great idea is to put fresh fruit in your sandwich. Bananas and or strawberries give a great kick to any sandwich.
So if you get a little tired of the same old same old, give these new ideas a try to upgrade your pb&j!
