Classic Hits: Why PB&J Is All the Rage Again
(Peanut Butter and Jelly for the non-Americans!)
Anyone who subscribes to a food magazine has probably seen what I think is one strange trend: PB&J-inspired desserts. In the last few months I've seen a recipe for PBJ cupcakes, brownies, galette, and french toast. Am I crazy?

I don't know why there's all this renewed buzz for the classic sammy, but I say it's a good thing. It's one of the great easy comfort foods – we all grew up with it, and as long as you use quality ingredients, it can be good for you to boot.

Why love the classic combo? Let me break it down, nutrition-style.

Peanut Butter: Though some fear its high fat content, if you use healthy, natural peanut butter, you're getting vital, heart-healthy fat. According to WH Foods, peanuts are a great source of monounsaturated fats, which may support heart health. In fact, one study showed that a diet that emphasized peanuts and PB was associated with a 21 percent decreased cardiovascular disease risk. Also helping out the heart: vitamin E, niacin, folate, protein, manganese, and reservatrol. There's evidence of other benefits, too, like being helping protect against gall stones and Alzheimers, but I'll leave it here: quality peanut butter has a lot of good qualities! I like the organic, crunchy one from Arrowhead Mills, but most grocery chains now have their own less expensive organic options.

Grape Jelly: For the ultimate classic, you gotta go with grape. And that's a-okay, as long as you don't get the kind that's almost entirely sugar. Just read the label and make sure you're getting real fruit, ideally the organic kind. Here a r a few health highlights associated with grapes, also from WH Foods: They support better blood sugar balance, better insulin regulation, and increased insulin sensitivity. There's also evidence that grapes' phytonutrients play a role in longevity. Smuckers makes a nice organic concord grape option.

Bread: Again, get the good stuff, and you'll get rich nutritents from healthy whole grains. We're talking more nutrients and fewer empty calories. Check bread labels for the Whole Grains Council stamp of approval to make sure your bread of choice is actually made with real whole grains. If it's not, check out this HuffPo taste test of top ten organic bread brands.
As for the crazy new twists on PB&Js, I'm still a bit leery. Anyone tried and loved a new recipe? Do tell!
