Sometimes a body needs peanut butter
When a PB craving comes upon me, a lovely way to satisfy it is to make this sandwich.
Generously spread a couple tablespoons of natural peanut butter on two slices of fresh multigrain or whole wheat bread. (Avoid PB with added salt, and choose smooth or chunky, whichever you prefer.)
Add very thin slices of apple, sliced banana and a drizzle of honey.
Carefully slice the sandwich in half. Be sure to have a vegetable side -- either a small salad or crudites, which I always have on hand. My accompaniment is sugar snap peas and sliced orange bell pepper.
My day job is college professor -- of mass communication and journalism, at the University of Cincinnati. I've probably got a few more years to go, and it's a good gig. Love to travel, cook, dine out, and work out.
