For me, lunch is the hardest meal of the day.
Generally we are on the run or trying to squeeze in a quick meal before nap time, and the last thing I feel like doing is cooking. After all, I just did that a few hours earlier, and I’ll most likely be doing it again tonight!
Sometimes a girl just needs a break.
I start with Ezekiel sprouted wheat bread, and for the fillings I use coconut oil, almond butter and raw local honey.
As with all healthy alternatives, this sandwich will take a second to get used to if you (or your kids) are accustomed to Jiffy peanut butter and Smucker’s jelly on white bread.
In college, a roommate (hi Jena!) and I would veg on the couch some nights with a large jar of Peter Pan peanut butter and a big bag Flaming Hot Cheetos. It was awesome and disgusting. Those were the good ole days of guiltless junk food eating!
Anyways, this packs well in a lunch box, perfect for picnics at the park…. something we’re about to be doing a lot more of!
