When I was younger a peanut butter & jelly sandwich was frequently found in my lunch box for school. Now, I am a working gal in my 20’s and I still pack a peanut butter & jelly sandwich for lunch sometimes. I must say though, I am much more selective of the type of bread, peanut butter, and jelly I use.

I determined a theory in college if snacks were good on-the-go kind of snacks. It was called the “backpack test”. If my snack managed to be still okay by the afternoon getting jostled around my backpack all morning and getting smushed between books then it passed. I’ve made these plenty of times in college because these PB&J Bites passed the “backpack test” with flying colors. Now it’s not so much the “backpack test” but more of a “giant professional bag turned into everyday bag turned into everything I ever need” kind of bag! haha 🙂

In Good Health,
