Peanut butter and jelly is a classic snack that is easy to make and enjoyed by many. Selecting whole grain bread for your peanut butter and jelly increases the nutrient content of the sandwich by adding fiber, protein, iron, magnesium and more.
Peanut butter is a great source of protein and healthy fat. The protein, fiber, and healthy fat found in whole grain bread and peanut butter help keep you fuller longer. Jelly is broken down quickly in the body to provide athletes with instant energy to train and compete. The carbohydrates, protein and vitamins and minerals in a peanut butter and jelly sandwich make this great option to help you restore energy and rebuild muscle after a work out!
Choose whole grain bread instead of white bread to boost the nutrition content as you Celebrate National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day!
