PB & Fruit Sandwich

Skip the sugary, processed jelly and make a whole-grain PB and fruit sandwich. Sliced bananas work well, but so do thinly sliced green apples, peaches, nectarines, or kiwis. Get creative. Be sure you choose whole-grain for a healthy sandwich. You should also go for natural peanut butter so you aren’t eating heavily processed trans fat or sugar.

Crunchy Banana Parfait

SECRET INGREDIENT: granola

This simple twist on dessert also makes a tasty and healthy breakfast. Store-bought granola stays wonderfully crisp when layered between plain yogurt and warm sautéed bananas.

Ingredients

1 teaspoon unsalted butter
1 small ripe banana, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1 teaspoon dark rum (optional)
1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt, divided
1/2 cup granola, divided

How to make it 

Heat the butter in a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When it melts, add the banana slices and cook for 1 minute

Add the brown sugar and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar melts and the bananas soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Off the heat, stir in the rum, if using, then return to the stove and cook until the rum evaporates, about 15 seconds. Remove from the heat and let stand 3 minutes.

Spoon 1/4 cup of the yogurt into the bottom of a tall parfait or wine glass. Top with 1/4 cup of the granola and half of the bananas. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
