Did you know that when you run long, you have a lot of time to think about what to make for breakfast. On the weekends, why I do long runs, breakfast turns into brunch. Brunch means it’s time to get bigger and more creative. Sure, you could make toast like you do everyday, but why do that when for the last two miles of your run, you planned a feast fit for a Queen?During my runs, I think about @blissnutbutter and Grilled PB&J #whatrunnerseat Click To Tweet
I love my partnership with Bliss Nut Butters because no matter what I am doing or what my goals are, they have a peanut butter that goes great with everything. Not only do I eat this peanut butter after running, but I also just love it whenever I need a snack during the day.
I talk a lot about running, but the other parts of what makes me Ellie, the friend, the bagel master, the blogger, the wizard (oh wait, my letter is still in the mail) need fuel too. These parts of me also choose Bliss Nut Butters because they are delicious, fresh ground and sweetened with honey, a natural sweetener and antioxidant powerhouse.
The fresh ground process used by Bliss maintains the integrity and high nutrient value of the nuts, whereas traditional nut butters are heat injected which degrades the nutrients and results in a lower quality product.
Honey, although controversial in the vegan community, is vegan by Dr. Gregor’s standards and pretty dang healthy too, as far as sugars go. No, it’s not low calorie, nor will it help you clear your acne, however it will boost immunity and help fight the inevitable onset of seasonal allergies. How? Well, the bits of pollen that are in your local honey, when exposed to your immune system in such small doses may actually build up immunity against that allergen. Not an excuse to drink the honey, but I’m pretty happy that is what sweetens my nut butter.
Now stop thinking about honey and just be assured that it’s in your favorite Bliss Nut Butter.
So, this recipe was created in the last two miles of my long run when all I could think about was what I was going to eat for breakfast. In exchange for my review and honest opinion of their products, Bliss Nut Butters sent me a bunch of nut butters to experiment with. This sandwich, and the jam recipe that follows is my favorite way to enjoy the Peanut Butter Bliss flavor. A classy spin on PB&J, perfect for brunch, lunch or a snack.
