A Better Than PB and J Sandwich

As a kid I loved peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Fluffy, white  Wonder bread….

Smooth and creamy Jif peanut butter…

and some sugary, sweet Smuckers Jam….

I do believe there is even a picture of me as a child sitting on my swingset in a little red bathing suit holding a peanut butter and jelly sandwich smiling…..

oh, how times have changed……

As an adult I know the nutritional void that comes with that fluffy white bread…..the sugar content in that sweet jam… peanut butter left my life years ago when I found out my children were allergic to it …..little red bathing suits left my life years ago too….I do believe that had something to do with my children as well…..:)

What’s a girl to do???

Compromise.

A Better Than PB and J Sandwich

  • sprouted whole grain tortilla (I like the Ezekial Brand)
  • almond butter
  • fresh sliced strawberries
  • fresh sliced bananas
  • dried blueberries
  • cacao nibs
Spread the almond butter evenly over the entire tortilla, top with strawberries, bananas and dried blueberries.  Sprinkle with cacao nibs or if you really want a treat some mini chocolate chips!  Roll up into a taco or burrito shape and ENJOY!!
this compromise is good although the compromise on the bathing suit didn’t turn out so well…..just saying….:)
