Toasted Peanut Butter Pita
Back when we were just starting out, my husband used to make this for us all the time. Quick, healthy and budget-friendly, this is a great option for breakfast or even lunch! Pita offers a lower carbohydrate option, as it is thinner than regular bread. I choose whole grain whenever possible to increase fiber intake and decrease cardiovascular disease risk. Peanut butter is a great option for staying satisfied, as it not only packs healthy proteins but also healthy fats! I love the way the peanut butter melts on the toasted pita.
