How can you not love the classic childhood favorite? Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches are as important in our memories of growing up as the Care Bears and Garbage Pail Kids!
Even as grown ups we love em'! They are a super yummy indulgent treat. Nothing cures a hang-over better then a nice big glass of cold milk and a P.B & J, we know this from years of highly scientific testing.
But these days we look for a little bit more from our favorite sandwich.
These days, we want yummy whole wheat bread and organic peanut butter.
Hold the phone! I know what you are thinking, organic peanut butter is the greasy grease bomb pits! And truly it has been for a long time. I get super yucked out when I open healthy peanut butter and it has like 2 inches of oil at the top of the jar. Yuck!
But have no fear, as a young(ish) mother Miss Me has done her research, because really, choosey moms can't choose Jiff these days. (But it is soooooo good!)
We bring you Revolution Foods ORGANIC peanut butter, in crunchy or creamy!
This is amazingly good, creamy and not oily. Tastes like it is not good for you, and that is a plus in our books! You can find it at your local Whole Foods.
Guess what else?? They make Jelly!! The yummy kind with out all the big chunks of fruit. That means it is approved by even the most finicky of eaters. (My son)
Organic and sweet.
Smart Balance also makes a really great natural peanut butter. This one is also super yummy and creamy and missing the dreaded oil on top!
I have gotten this one at Ralphs, so it may easier to get in your area if you don't have a Whole Foods.
Peanut butter is also really, really, yummy these ways:
*In a sandwich with HONEY
*In a sandwich with BANANAS
*On a spoon!
*In a sandwich with MARSHMALLOW FLUFF! (*Super Not Healthy!)
But the best of the best is when peanut butter meets jelly, it is a match made in food heaven!
How cute are these little friendship necklaces for you and your B.F.F?
Pretty dang cute! You can get yours here.
Miss Me ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches the whole time she was pregnant with her first baby and now that is all he will eat! It must be hereditary :)
Hmmmm, this is sounding so good, I may have to go get one right now. (No! I am not pregnant again, thank you very much, just hungry!)
