Peanut butter and banana.
If this is not the best combination, I don’t know what is. It’s perfect for fueling runs or the workday. It’s easy to eat and (relatively) portable – all you need is a small tupperware, which can double as a trash can for your peel when you’re done.
I’ve been having eggs for breakfast the past few days, which, I’ll admit, has been keeping me full longer than my usual bowl of oatmeal with peanut butter – but somehow 10 am hits and I miss my crunchy peanut goodness.
And so this is my new go to morning snack. We always have bananas in the office, and I don’t mind eating them as much as the other non-organic fruit. I do wish they were fair trade though.
Lately, we’ve also been lucky to have non-Skippy peanut butter in the office. In fact, not only is this peanut butter just peanuts (not even salt), it’s made by Project Open Hand, a Bay Area organization that has been providing “meals with love” to people living with serious illness and seniors in San Francisco and Alameda County since 1985.
Peanut butter became such a popular choice among clients, they decided to start grinding their own. Volunteers grind it fresh every day to deliver. All proceeds go to their nutrition programs for their clients. Their website lists the locations in the Bay Area where it can be purchased. If you don’t live in the Bay Area, hunt around, maybe someone similar is doing something near you. Or start something up!
I don’t have much else to say, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to shine a spotlight on one of my favorite foods and a fabulous organization!
