I really mean that. It does. Hungry? PB&J can help. Depressed? Got ya covered. Happy? Hooray for PB&J!
Now, this might be because it is a great combination of flavors and textures. Or perhaps it is things like protein and carbs. Or maybe, just maybe, it’s because peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are a comfort food from childhood. Because they were easy, and cheap, and on some level are connected with good memories. Friends and family who were there to share them. Just good times in general. And simpler times. Times when things were so much easier. Hungry? Have PB&J, because there’s plenty of protein and carbs in there, and let’s face it, it tastes good. And that was it. Just an easy answer to everything.
Some days I really miss the easy answers.
So when I do, I have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. And a glass of chocolate milk to go with it.
And for ten minutes, everything is simple again.
