Peanut butter and jelly pudwich

This is a yummy and healthy option to a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

The health problem is not the peanut butter and jelly, it's the extra 40 carbs and the processed flour in the bread.

If you compare a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and my peanut butter and jelly pudding, you will notice the pudding has 40 less carbs, more fiber, more healthy fats, and more protein.

The pudding tastes like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.



Read the labels and pick the brands you like wherever you shop.


I used a small travel cup, added about 2 tablespoons (32 grams) of peanut butter.

Then I added about half as much jelly (16 grams) , and half a tablespoon (8 grams) of chia seeds.

I steered the mixture till it was creamy, and then mixed in 2 tablespoons of my seed mix.

That's it. Eat it now, or save it for later.

My seed mix today is 5 items that I find in the produce section of my grocery store.
I dump all five containers into a 1 gallon container, mix it up, and store it in the frig.

1. raw sunflower seeds
2. roasted sunflower seeds
3. raw pumpkin seeds
4. roasted pumpkin seeds
5. slivered almonds

Be careful not to eat too many seeds each day, 2 tablespoons of my seed mix is about 183 calories.

I keep the chia seeds in a separate container.
