One of the things I've been trying to do with this pregnancy is to eat a lot of protein. I mean, I prefer a juicy hamburger or some fried chicken, but that's probably not healthy to have at every meal, right? Also, meat can be expensive, especially when you're trying to buy grass-fed, organic, and all that stuff.
Enter other sources of protein! Peanut butter was one that came recommended by my doctor's office, and luckily it's perfect on toast! Especially if you sweeten it up with a fresh apple and some honey. Seriously. The honey MAKES this snack. Josh isn't a huge fan of peanut butter, and even he liked this! So with his stamp of approval, I wanted to share this recipe for peanut butter toast with you guys.
Now, this is one of those recipes that isn't really a recipe. Seriously, you take a piece of whole-grain bread, toast it, add a little butter, throw some healthy peanut butter on there (I have a jar of Justin's Peanut Butter at my house), add some apple slices, and squeeze some honey over the top. Super-easy. Super-delicious.
Added bonus? Sydney (our dog) LOVES licking any leftover peanut butter off the plate. So this peanut butter toast is a treat for all of us in the house.
