Nuts about PB & H

Lately, I’ve noticed that stress seems to by the trigger of my sugar cravings. After spending the past two weeks in and out of the house with work and uni, I have come home each night ready for some relax time on the couch with my roommates and a packet of Double Coat Tim Tams. Although somehow, I didn’t think Tim Tam’s made it onto the ‘Acceptable Foods’ list this September. Fortunately, I was able to find a healthier alternative which successfully capped my sweet tooth- natural peanut butter with honey on rye crackers.

Firstly, for those who haven’t tasted this sensation before, you are seriously missing out! No honestly, leave the computer right now and head straight for the kitchen. It is life-changing. Honey contains a special antioxidant called flavonoids, which help reduce the risk of some cancers and heart disease. It is also a great natural medicine for coughs and colds (just put 1 tsp in a mug with a squeeze of lemon and some hot water).

While many people often perceive peanut butter as an automatic ‘no’ for all diets, there are certain supermarkets which stock products made from 100% peanuts. This is definitely the way you want to go! Natural peanut butter contains amazing immunity-boosting vitamin B6, bone-building magnesium, and muscle-friendly potassium.

As for rye, what better way to replace wheat while staying fuller for longer? I have recently found Ryvita crackers at my local supermarket which are amazing (95% wholegrain rye!).

Well, that’s all from me tonight. For anyone who hasn’t tried peanut butter and honey before and are doing so for the first time, please let us know your thoughts! We hope you like it as much as we do.
