Let's Start A #PBJRevolution

Back to school time means parents every where are once again trying to come up with tasty, nutritious, unique options for all those lunch boxes. And while yes, I'm on that bandwagon, I'm also of the thinking that sometimes simple is best. Something we all had in our lunchbox. After all, the classics never go out of style. And when it comes to a packed school lunch, you don't get any more classic than our old friend the Peanut Butter & Jelly!! 

Sure, it's not fancy. It's nothing new. It's something your child has probably eaten 100 times before. But, think about it. Do they ever complain? Do they ever say they are tired of it? Not my kid. My son could eat a pb&j every single day, if I let him! 

But what's to say you can't make this classic new again? A tiny revolution maybe! In fact, Buzzfeed posted an article this month dedicated to making a better pb&j! New ways to make this favorite fun and unique! 

In that spirit, I've teamed up with my great friends at Peanut Butter & Co. to help you start your own revolution! They are giving one lucky EMM winner a jar of their original Smooth Operator peanut butter and  Seriously Strawberry Jam, two staples in this house!



If you've never tried Peanut Butter & Co.'s products, they are 100% natural with no hydrogenated oils, no cholesterol, no trans-fats and, no high fructose corn syrup. Not to mention 100% DELICIOUS!! 

So, if you want to join us in this #PBJRevolution, enter today and go make yourself one now just to snack on! And to stay up on everything peanut butter, be sure to like them on Facebook, and follow on Twitter!

Toasted bread to melt the peanut butter, dollops of grape jelly or apple butter and then dunked in hot chai tea. Yum!

A peanut butter and jelly is delicious in its original form, but I love smearing some coconut oil on the outside of the bread and cooking it on the stove top for a crispy gooey mess (:

Leena Jaramillo said...

My favorite way to eat pb&j is with very toasted toast, strawberry jelly, and have it overflowing with bee's knees peanut butter. 😍

I love PB&CO peanut butter! I can't eat bread anymore so I can't eat PB&J sandwiches. However, I love Peanut Butter on sticks of celery as an afternoon snack or scoops of delicious PB&CO peanut butter in a protein shake. Might have to try making a peanut butter and jelly shake ;) chasradcliffe@gmail.com
