Toast With Peanut Butter

Warm whole wheat toast with crunchy peanut butter is one of my all time favorite snacks. The key to keeping this snack healthy is to choose quality bread and peanut butter. Look for 100% whole wheat bread and if you really want to choose healthy bread, look for Ezekiel bread in the frozen section of your grocery store the next time your food shopping. The health benefits of Ezekiel bread include:
  • Contains all 9 essential amino acids
  • 18 amino acids from all vegetable sources
  • Contains no flour
  • Low in fat
  • Has no trans fats or cholesterol
  • Relatively low in sodium

Your choice for the healthiest peanut butter should ones that are 100% all natural. This means absolutely no extra sugar added to it. Turn the jar around and look at the ingredients. It should simply say "peanuts and salt". If you see any other ingredients listed, put it down and look for another one. Great choices include Adam's and Laura Scudder's 100% all natural peanut butter.
