HEALTHY PB & J

When you are craving something before or after workout or just an afternoon snack peanut butter and chia jam on half a whole wheat bread or Ezekiel bread might just fit the bill. The combination of peanut butter and bread provides protein, B vitamins, iron and zinc. Homemade chia jam is very easy to make, it contains real fruit, little sugar and is nutritionally enriched from the chia seeds. So even though it is called peanut butter and jelly stay away from jelly that is only made from juice of the fruit and is loaded with sugar. To make this snack even healthier sprinkle the sandwich with flaxseed meal to add extra protein, fiber, manganese and vitamin B1.
