Peanut Butter and Honey Sandwich
Yield: 1 serving
- 1 slice of whole grain bread or toast
- 1 Tablespoon peanut butter (or other nut butter, such as almond butter)
- 1 teaspoon honey
- Wash hands with soap and water.
- Spread a piece of whole grain bread (or toast) with a Tablespoon of peanut butter (or other nut butter).
- Whole grain bread provides important fiber and nutrients. MyPlate recommends half of the grains you eat be whole grains.
- One Tablespoon of peanut butter or almond butter counts as a 1 ounce equivalent in the Protein group of MyPlate. Including nuts and nut butters in meals can boost your intake of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Most fat in the diet should come from these types of fatty acids.
- One to two teaspoons honey (about 21 calories per teaspoon) add a bit of sweetness at a calorie level that fits into most meal plans. NOTE: DO NOT feed honey to children under one year of age. Honey might cause infant botulism, a potentially fatal disease. Here here for more details on botulism and young children from the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
