Behold! The bananawich!

Start with a banana and some peanut butter.

Cut the banana in half both ways and smear with peanut butter.

Place the pieces together like a sandwich and dig in!

First impressions: The bananawich was tasty, but messy. Be prepared to lick peanut butter and banana goo off of your fingers. My banana would have benefited from another day or two of ripening, so I’ll have to try this again.

I found out about the bananawich from Skwigg, who in turn heard about it from The Fitnessista. Perhaps one day, my children, you too shall post about the bananawich and tell people you in turn heard about it from PastaQueen.

Peanut butter crepes

I usually eat oatmeal for breakfast in the mornings because I am sleepy and lazy at seven o’clock in the morning. It’s easier to dump a packet of oats in a bowl, add water and microwave it than to prepare an omelet or scrambled eggs. However, the protein in eggs is good for me and keeps me fuller longer, so I sometimes make peanut butter crepes on the weekends. They’re pretty quick too, though I have to clean more bowls, beaters and skillets later.

I grabbed this recipe from Erin Shea’s site, Lose the Buddha over a year ago, though she calls them peanut butter pancakes. I prefer to call them crepes since it sounds more egg-like. I’m sure someone will tell me why it’s absolutely erroneous for me to be calling them crepes, but I don’t care, they’ll always be crepes to me. I also doubled the recipe because I am tall and hungry.

Peanut Butter Crepes

1 large egg

5 egg whites

1 Tablespoon Splenda (or sugar or another sweetener)

2 Tablespoons peanut butter

Combine ingredients in a blender [...]

Think I can sue for damages?

I’ve bent spoons digging out ice cream before, but in the battle of peanut butter vs. tablespoon, the peanut butter won.

I might start microwaving my peanut butter after I take it out of the fridge from now on. Bed, Bath and Beyond sends me lots of coupons, but I don’t want to use them all on new sets of measuring spoons.

Recipe – Peanut Butter Cookies

I’ve switched into a recipe mode again, so I’ll be trying out some South Beach Diet compatible recipes and reviewing them on the blog. First up:

Peanut Butter Cookies

South Beach Diet – Phase 1

1 cup smooth peanut butter

1 cup Splenda

1 egg

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix ingredients together. Drop teaspoon sized balls onto greased cookie sheet and bake for about 10 minutes.

These cookies were pretty good, but you definitely need some milk nearby to get the dry taste out of your mouth. I found it pretty amazing that you can actually make cookies without flour. They’d probably taste better with the flour, but these weren’t bad at all. Bonus points for being quick to make.

The only problem I had was that I couldn’t eat just one. I wanted to eat 4, which included more nuts than I should be having in a day. I have this problem with all cookies and small serving food though. Whenever I make whole wheat bread, I end up chomping on 3 slices or half the loaf.

Final Assessment: I won’t throw [...]
