Fast food….

and no drive-thru required?  Yes!

As the Mom of two active and always-eating-teenage boys…..I know it can be a challenge (for many) when it comes to preparing: simple, nutritious and delicious grab-and-go-grub.

If you’re suffering from: “What the heck do I make for breakfast/lunch/dinner/snack syndrome” I’ve got you covered with healthy meals and snacks made with peanuts and peanut butter!

Why?  Peanuts and peanut butter are loaded with plant protein, fibre and heart healthy fats.

Did you know?  Peanuts have more protein than any other nut and are an excellent source of magnesium, niacin, and Vitamin E.
