a different kind of PB & J

Abby here.

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.

So here’s where we land quite a bit.
Image-5It might look like 2 pieces of bread squished together, but it’s actually full of tasty, healthy things.

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!
