Anyone else going crazy trying to prepare for the holidays?? All my gifts are finally purchased, so now begins wrapping-palooza – a several night process where I suffer from a cramped back and endless paper cuts all in the name of the holiday spirit. To be fair I do this to myself, since most people would probably be fine with a holiday bag or some festive wrapping paper from the dollar store; however, I am opting for a “brown paper packages tied up with string” theme this year, which only adds to my craziness. (I’ll post a picture on Instagram later this week… they are coming out pretty gorgeous, if I do say so myself!) And, to add to the fun, it is not only just 7 days until Christmas, it is also 7 days until B and I leave for our first European vacation. Feel free to send me lots of
alcohol Starbucks this week! (No, seriously.)
In between packing, wrapping, cooking, baking, and cleaning, there has been little time for much else, including food shopping. So when I grabbed one of the last few yogurts in the refrigerator on my way to work the other day, I didn’t even think to check what flavor it was. Honestly, it didn’t really matter since it was the last 100 calorie one we had. However, when I got to work and saw it was plain vanilla I was generally disappointed. (As a side note, Chobani’s 100 calorie vanilla is quite delicious, but for some reason the flavor reminds me of the Greek yogurt I ate every day after surgery and I just have an adverse reaction.) So, I scrounged around in my firm’s kitchen cabinets to see what I could come up with to salvage breakfast, and came up with this amazing PB&J recipe, which immediately brought me back to so many memories of childhood lunches! It sounds a bit weird, but it is seriously delicious and just hit the spot, so much so that I bought some more vanilla Greek yogurt to have it again this morning! I hope you enjoy it!
- 1 container of Greek yogurt (I used Chobani, 100 calorie Vanilla)
- 1 teaspoon strawberry jam (I like Smuckers and always try to opt for the sugar free version)
- 1 tablespoon unsalted, roasted peanuts
Add the jam and peanuts to your container of yogurt, mix, & enjoy! It’s really as simple as that!
