Power P B and J

Who doesn’t love a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich? Well, this is a healthy upgrade with a power punch…one of my favorite quick go-to meals!


  • ½ cup peanut or almond butter or nut butter of choice (use nut butters with blood type specific food chart)
  • 1 slice of Ezekiel, gluten free bread, ancient grain sourdough bread or sliced cooked sweet potato 
  • ½ cup sprouts or micro greens 
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • a handful of sliced strawberries or berries of choice or honey/organic jam

 Toast bread…spread nut butter…sprinkle some of the hemp seeds on…then sliced fruit… add sprouts on top…serve open-faced…YUM!
