Hungry, in a rush, not having that much extra cash to spare for the week and still wanting to maintain a healthy lifestyle. What is a girl to do? Well I ransack the fridge like any other normal human being would. I didn’t have too much in the house but I had bananas, walnuts and peanut butter. Growing up my mom would mash up this yummy fruit full of potassium and sprinkle some sugar on it. I have to admit not the healthiest of choices but peanut butter was really off the radar for my hispanic mom. I remember the first time I told her about peanut butter and my mom said, “Mija what do you mean? You smash peanuts with butter that’s discussing! ” Totally off the grid. But as I got older and my friend would share her peanut butter and banana sandwich with me during lunch I realized how yummy and full of protein it was.
Making your own Peanut Butter :
For something lighter and if you are craving something sweet. You could always mash up bananas and add honey!
