When in Paris I stopped for a treat
On a narrow well-traveled side street
A crepe did I try
I wanted to cry
Nutella? Banana? Oui Oui!
When I got home I thought why not see
If Nutella was really the key
I found to my glee
It wasn’t to be
I could do the same thing with the pea (nut butter)!
ok, it’s not poetry; Ogden Nash can rest easy. But have you tried the Peanut Butter & Co. products?!? They contain no chemicals, don’t need refrigeration, won’t separate, and are delicious.
So these days it’s the protein part of my breakfast, whether in a smoothie with kale, blueberries, and pineapple, or on a thin slab of whole wheat toast with a shmear of homemade strawberry jam, or, in a surprisingly low calorie start to the day, on a crepe or waffle with some slices of banana.
I’ve even been known to slip a tablespoon into a bowl of oatmeal — it disappears into the cereal but leaves a little sweetness in its wake.
Any of these will stave off hunger for hours, and will make you very happy!
