Happy National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day!!!
A lot of people think “PB&J is for kids” but that’s not the case! PB&J on whole grain bread is the perfect combination of complex carbohydrates, protein and healthy fat to keep you going and performing at your best! Especially for the high school and collegiate athlete, there tends to be limited time in the day - commuting between classes, practices and games - that one cannot sit down and have a meal that requires a fork! Adding fresh fruits and using jam, instead of jelly, offers additional protective benefits - antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to further boost energy levels while offering some immediate fuel for that long lasting practice/game. So enjoy that PB&J and be confident in knowing you're fueling your body well! :)
