Serious sweet cravings today after only 5 hours of restless sleep in the sweltering heat. ( I’m not complaining, it’s just sooooooo hot during the night ; ) So what could I eat instead of the default mars bar I thought to myself. Then I remembered this snack that I started to eat during my au-pair days in San Francisco. Apple and a dollop of peanut butter!
Poor peanut butter has such a bad rep ; ( Unjustly so! Sure it is high in fats and calories so not a good idea to eat a tub of it in one sitting. But like this it’s a superb snack ;
1 small tablespoon of crunchy peanut butter. It has to be a no added sugar, all natural type of thing. Such as the Koeze brand that I love!
Then one might be thinking, well I might just have half a Mars bar instead. Sure it’s possible, however what good stuff for your health does it have in store for you? ( And who are you trying to kid by thinking you will only have half, just one small bite more, and another one…whoopsie time to throw away the wrapper)
Chocolate, must be good for you right? Sure but the amount of cocoa is so small it’s hardly worth mentioning
