Day 13: Monday Morning On the Go BreakfastPB&J

Here goes another pretty basic Monday Morning post. I like this breakfast because if you buy whole grain English muffins they can actually be quite nutritious. The ones that I have been buying have about 8 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber. Add two tablespoons peanut butter (8g protein) and jelly  and you have a nice breakfast that is high in protein (more protein than two eggs, and for someone at 115 pounds about a third of your daily protein requirement).

So that's a pretty good start to the day, not to mention that the jelly will give you a little sugar rush (shhh.... that's the less healthy aspect but I'm willing to accept that).

So there's not really a recipe, just a toasted muffin, two tablespoons peanut butter, and a tablespoon jam. You can put the halves together, wrap it with a paper towel and secure with a rubber band (from your produce of course! No need to buy rubber bands. If you're vegan and you don't have an excess of rubber bands from your produce you're not doing it right). Done. Enjoy on the subway and you can use your paper towel as a napkin. Ultimate time-saver.
