Packed with protein, fiber, + all those *healthy fats* — peanut butter is a staple in any #CHAARGie’s kitchen. PB + apples are the perfect post #CHAARGBOOTYCAMP snack, but it’s always fun to get creative + try something new. Here are some normal + not-so-normal ways to change up your peanut butter eating game —
1] PEANUT BUTTER + KIMCHI
The Kimchi Peanut Butter Sandwich is for adventurous PB lovers. ; ) Its ingredients may scare you at first, but don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it. The slight spice of the kimchi complements the saltiness of the chunky peanut butter, making each bite flavorful.
2] PEANUT BUTTER ON A BURGER
Calling all PB-loving #CHAARGies in the Boston area! Check out The King Burger at Boston Burger Co. — if you’re feeling daring. This flavor-packed burger is topped with cinnamon, peanut butter, bacon, + banana. It’s sweet, savory, + 100% sure to curb those PB cravings.
3] PEANUT BUTTER ON MELON
Want a snack that’s a little different than the typical banana or apple with peanut butter? Try dipping your melon in PB — it sounds strange, but it is refreshing + the perfect on-the-go snack!
4] PEANUT BUTTER + CHICKEN
Chicken + peanut butter are two foods you can buy in bulk + store in your fridge for meal preppin’ during #CHAARGBOOTYCAMP! Combine them to make a simple + delicious meal! This recipe is the best of both worlds — for the peanut butter lovers, this one’s a keeper.
5] PEANUT BUTTER HUMMUS
Hummus goes on everything — veggies, sandwiches, you name it! Check out this recipe that combines it with PB to make your most versatile snack even more enjoyable.
6] PEANUT BUTTER PAD THAI
Have you been craving Pad Thai, but spent a bit too much on coffee this week? Luckily, this quick + easy Peanut Pad Thai Sauce is college budget approved. It uses dining hall ingredients + can be made in your dorm room.
7] PB + FRUIT SANDWICH
Simple + sweet, this is for the person that is tired of having lunch meat on their sandwich every day. Change things up by having lunch ++ dessert at the same time with a Fruit Stack PB Sandwich. Simply switch out meat for some fruit [apples, bananas, mangos, or strawberries work really well] + substitute mayo for peanut butter.
8] PEANUT BUTTER + SWEET POTATO
Trying to avoid sweets, but still craving something yummy for dessert? Try cooking a sweet potato + topping it with peanut butter, dark chocolate chips, cinnamon + nutmeg. It’ll taste good, + fuel ya up for a late-night #CHAARGBOOTYCAMP workout, too. : )
