Peanut Butter Toast
Most people have the wrong idea about peanut butter and bread: that they’re both bad for you and will make you fat. But that is not true if you’re using the right kind of peanut butter and bread and consuming both in moderation.
First of all, if you’re eating peanut butter, it should be 100% peanuts, and that’s it. There should absolutely be no added oil or sugar. In fact, if we are at someone’s house and they offer us peanut butter and it has added oil and sugar, we won’t eat it. Peanut butter tastes better when it doesn’t have a bunch of crap in it and is much better for you. So, when you’re buying peanut butter make sure that the only ingredient is peanuts.
With consumption of all nut butters, you have to be reasonable. Although peanut butter is healthy, that doesn’t mean you should scoop a tennis ball size amount onto your toast. A good rule is use just enough to cover your piece of toast to the point where it is a thin layer.
Now, onto selecting the right kind of bread. We use Ezekiel bread, which is sprouted and undoubtedly the best bread for you. It’s the best for you because it contains a bunch of nutrients and isn’t stripped of all the good stuff. Dave’s Killer Bread is also a great choice when you choose either the “Good Seed” or “Power Seed” variation as these also haven’t been stripped of many nutrients.
