Peanut butter and jelly – the ultimate snack or meal
There’s more than meets the eye when it comes to a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It’s a simple and easy meal made in a matter of minutes, but can be saved for hours until a burst of energy is needed to keep your day going.
A peanut butter and jelly sandwich comes packed with carbohydrates and healthy protein. What’s not to love? If you’re on the go, need to gain or lose healthy weight, peanut butter and jelly can be your meal of choice.
See the tricks below for a peanut butter and jelly makeover.
In a hurry? Remember the Uncrustable PB&J from back in the day? What an easy snack/meal to store in the freezer and put in your bag to eat later. Even better, pair it with a Greek yogurt or cheese stick – a meal in a matter of seconds.
Are you the individual who needs to gain weight? Do a peanut butter and jelly makeover, and do what we call a “triple stacker.” This simple touch increases the amount of healthy calories in an instant. Put peanut butter and jelly between two Uncrustables, or stack an extra layer of bread, peanut butter and jelly in your homemade sandwich. If you want to lose weight, or have a peanut allergy, substitute with any almond butter. Voila! That easy.
