Eat– for Good Health

Peanut Butter and Jelly on the Perfect “10”

The “Perfect 10″ Western Bagel contains 10 net carbs, 9 grams of which are fiber, and 18 grams of protein with a variety of grains. Toast and spread with 2 T. peanut butter and a generous quantity of sugar-free jelly for a delectable PB&J.  Keep in mind bananas (Elvis’ favorite) apples, carrots, and celery sticks are delectable with peanut butter.

When this bagel’s 18 grams of high quality grain protein is combined with peanut butter, a legume more closely related to a pea than a nut, your grain-legume combination provides complete protein. Natural peanut butter, the kind that sometimes has to be stirred, is better for the heart because it contains only peanut oil, the good kind.  Studies have shown that mono-unsaturated fats prevent heart disease.

One percent of the population is allergic to peanut butter.  Allergic reactions are quick and easy to identify since they occur within thirty minutes.  Food intolerances, caused by artificial colors, preservatives, and flavor enhancers, are slower in reaction time.

Judy, a cousin of my friend Janessa Breckinridge, started the Gold Standard Plan prior to publication.  Release date is January 2010 for GOLD STANDARD OF THIN.  Enjoying this PB&J on the Perfect 10 for lunch and then taking a walk, Judy lost twelve pounds the first month.  Fiber-rich carbs break down slowly and thus trigger less insulin.  This allows her body free to burn fat during her walk.  The mono-unsaturated fat in peanut butter keeps her feeling full.  She says walking does not make her hungrier when she eats the right carbs.

    Holidays are a fun time to fuss a bit. We’re having a Thanksgiving dinner today for son Ted, a nurse, who will work on Thursday. The bird is in the oven! We’ll have another one on Thanksgiving– buy one get one free, ha ha.
