My youngest teen offered to boil some eggs for me this morning. It’s probably my favorite protein right now due to the fact that I have lost some of my desire to eat meat most days. I may have mentioned in an earlier post that my youngest also decided to change her eating habits and has adopted the life of a pescetarian. So this boiled egg ritual has become what we bond over for some strange reason (in addition to roasted veggies).
I declined her offer this morning because I was in the process of finishing off a peanut butter and jelly sandwich…yep that’s right a good ole fashioned PB&J sammich! For some of you familiar with the food path/journey I’m taking, a red flag may register because typically, the traditional version of this all-time favorite classic is usually laden with ingredients that include unnecessary amounts of sugar, salt, preservatives and of course, flour, but here is my natural, wholesome, minimally processed version:
Peanut Butter – Freshly ground unsalted peanuts
Whole Foods 365 Apricot Spread
2 slices of toasted Ezekiel Bread (pictured above)
Very simple, very good-for-you and believe it or not, very delicious.
And speaking of delicious…I must make a confession. My palate has changed quite a bit and I realize that what is delicious to me now, is no longer delicious to the fans of my former food preparation practices and vices. I’ll take time to address this at a later date as I ponder on it a bit more.
