Peanut Butter Sandwich

Really, Poppy? A recipe for a peanut butter sandwich? Not just a recipe for a peanut butter sandwich! Rather, the results of my extensive and ongoing research into the best food before skating practice disguised as a recipe for a peanut butter sandwich!

Giant haystack of pasta bolognese, too much. Gatorade, not enough. Chocolate silk was good, until it blooped. But a peanut butter sandwich is also good, you get protein from the peanut butter and carbs from the bread. I like:

Jif creamy peanut butter
Natural Ovens Right Wheat bread
   or Brownberry 100% Whole Wheat bread

Though Right Wheat bread used to be just regular bread and now it's Weight Sense bread, basically which means thinner slices. I'm down with the thinner slices, I'm not down with it being called "weight sense" bread. In any case, I think it's just shy of enough calories for practice. I will be having bread trials in the near future.

I don't actually make my own peanut butter sandwiches, that's handled by my pit crew. I mean, I know how...

BULLETIN FROM POPPYLABS 4/2/09: Brownberry 100% Whole Wheat bread performed adequately in trials and is an acceptable alternative to Natural Ovens Right Wheat bread.

ETA 3/10/10: I started eating jelly again, I need the sugar.

Per sandwich with Brownberry bread, 2 Tbsp peanut butter and 1 Tbsp jelly, 460 calories
