My Favorite Snack: Bread, Bananas and the Peanut Butter

Well, not “favorite” in a chocolate decadence sort-of way…

Rather, “favorite” in an, “I am counting calories and really need something other than celery and water” sort of way.

LIKE, I REALLY NEED SOMETHING BESIDES CELERY, but I cannot ingest theย chocolate torte drizzled with caramel and sprinkled with sea salt.

I mean I COULD ingest the cookies/torte/cupcake/etc/whathaveyou, but I SHOULD NOT.

At least not often.

There comes a time in the day when I need *something*. Something sturdy enough to punch my cravings in the face, and something delicious enough to trick my mind into thinking I’m happy not having a cookie/brownie/pie/mozzarella sticks/etc/whathaveyou…

This little snack is easy and something I look quite forward too.

1 slice of homemade bread. TOASTED *just so*…

toasted homemade bread

Peanut butter. Local peanut butter. Once you go local, you never go back…

toast with peanut butter

1/4 to 1/3 sliced banana (depending on size of banana and thickness of banana slices)…

toast, peanut butter, and banana

Open wide.

Deliver to bellee.

Rub happy bellee.

Good job.

So… what’s YOUR favorite snack?

  1. I’m counting calories as well, and this is one of my go-tos! I love using Ezekiel sprouted grain cinnamon raising bread and drizzling a bit of honey on top ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Oh, Ezekiel bread is EXCELLENT! We have Dave’s Bread (local) and there’s a thin slice (whole grains, organic, etc…) that I love to eat too… And cinnamon is SUCH a great idea! I read somewhere that consuming 1/4 tsp of cinnamon a day can reduce one’s triglyceride level! *makes mental note*

    Om nom nom… I don’t do bread. =( Have you read ‘Wheat Belly’?!?!? I’m assuming not. I love bread but I cannot eat it. It makes me sad… I do on occasion rebel and eat it anyway O.o

    • I am so sorry Jo! I have not read it and I turn my eyes! I am sorry you cannot eat the wheat… I am thankful I am able to. I will say, though… I don’t have some everyday and almost never more than one slice (exception: chaperoning school field trips. I take a tradish sammywhich!)… <3

    I got SO hooked on that for a while. lol Haven’t tried natural pb with it though, I will have to givve that a go. Have some to use up.

    I just read something else that you may love. I need to get Nutella first. Take two slices of bread, spread with Nutella, add banana slices, then fry. OH MY I will die of numminess when I try it I bet. lol

  4. The should not hasn’t really infiltrated by brain enough. I’d like to say a fruit smoothie w/o any sweeteners cause that what I do on good days, but usually…. a homemade latte with a square of Lindt’s dark chili chocolate. Yeah, that’s my go to snack.

    • I have to say… my only successful health-approach includes chocolate. And/or something delicious. I cannot rule out anything. Like you said, a SQUARE of chocolate, etc.. And have done that too – make a latte and have a good piece of chocolate… OR make my own mocha ๐Ÿ™‚ There’s something about satiating that craving, but having control ๐Ÿ™‚

    My local Trader Joe’s has a counter where the make things using ingredients from the store. One day they were grilled almond butter and banana sandwiches drizzltthed with agave syrup…yummy to the max!!!

    I am so in love with local peanut butter. I can not fathom ever going back to lamesauce peanut butter. The honey roasted Central Market peanut butter truly makes my heart sing.

    If you get in the mood to have two slices of bread some day. Try making this sandwich without toasting. Then dip the outsides of the bread in egg as if making a french toast sandwich. Then…make a…french toast peanut butter banana sandwich! Top with fresh maple syrup…and it is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo super yummy! (Is that enough o’s to get my point accross?!) You will be full til bedtime. Okay…maybe not unless you eat it for dinner..but you know what I mean! ๐Ÿ˜‰
