PB & J: The Perfect Travel Food

My favorite travel food is a peanut butter sandwich made with organic peanut butter and fruit jam on a minimally processed sprouted grain bun. The bun provides quality nutrition and keeps the peanut butter and jam neatly inside the sandwich even during long hours of travel. Peanut butter keeps hunger at bay and a good all fruit jam adds great flavor without excessive amounts of sugar. This is a quickly assembled kid- friendly food which is far superior to "convenience foods" such as pop-tarts. With a supply of sprouted grain buns in the freezer and your favorite peanut butter and jam in the pantry, a decent portable meal is always a moment away.

1 organic sprouted grain bun
1 tablespoon organic peanut butter
1 tablespoon all- fruit jam or preserves

Assemble and wrap well; store in fridge until needed. These will keep well for a few days without refrigeration.

Note: Recent studies show that people who maintain low caloric intake while traveling suffer little or no jet lag.
