When we crave junk food, it typically means that we are missing protein in our diet. One of the best ways to up our protein intake is with a quick and easy snack involving peanut butter. ‘Ants on A Log’ (raisins optional) is a great way to incorporate peanut butter into our daily snacking routine. Cut up a few sticks of celery and spread half a tablespoon of peanut butter on each one. If you’re allergic to peanuts, almond butter is a great replacement. Tada! Delicious protein at your fingertips.
