Let me tell you a story about my FAVORITE pantry item.
Peanut butter can be substituted for almond butter, sunflower butter, cashew butter or whatever nut butter or alternative you like.
However, I’m a sucker for peanut butter.
Peanut butter is an essential in our house. Seriously, we probably go through a small jar every 10 days.
During my last two pregnancies I was often caught like this:
Because I used it as my sweet treat. I still do, very often, eat a spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar. (No I’m not pregnant, I just crave sweet stuff 24/7)
When you are broke: Peanut butter sandwiches
When you are watching your calories: Peanut Butter Protein Bites
When you want something sweet: Peanut Butter and chocolate chips or Peanut butter brownies!
When you want to see your dog lick the air like crazy: Peanut Butter
When you are driving your kids across the country: Peanut butter on bread!
No joke, when we drove to Florida from Arizona, I had a butter knife, loaf of bread and jar of peanut butter in my “essentials bag”. It really helped on those days the kids were picky eaters.
I’m telling you, it came in handy. It is an absolute must have in our house.
Everyone has something they must have in their pantry at all times, what is your item?
