For all the fun and fancy things I find to eat, there is nothing like a PB&J pre bike ride. I think I’ve finally gotten the exact components that work for the long haul:
- Trader Joe’s sprouted bread: nice balance of fiber and protein. I like the texture.
- Trader Joe’s boysenberry: I like the seeds and it’s a little tart, but sweet
- Jif creamy peanut butter: The Tj’s unsalted is usually my go to. But the manufactured aspect of the big brands means it’s good for the long ride. The PB doesn’t get all messy (when I decide to pack a sandwich and stick it in in the bento box on the bike). I’m working through a container of Skippy this week and think the Jif is sweeter. So Jif is the new go-to. Can you tell I like the sweet side of life?
I eat one every Saturday morning. Sometimes I toast the bread if I’m pulling 2 slices out of the freezer. And I’m off! I did notice the bread gets a little “crunchy” after 3 hours of being wrapped in a paper towel if I bring one on the bike.
