Doughnuts, Pancakes and PB&J

doughnuts


I know I'm not the only one who can't live without doughnuts. I don't eat them often, but they are an extremely welcomed indulgence whenever I feel like really treating myself. For all of you doughnut lovers out there, have you ever heard of Spudnuts, or any other doughnuts made with potato flour for that matter? Spudnuts is a doughnut shop in Panama City Beach (along with many other cities across the country) that I discovered thanks to Greg and his family on one of my first trips to the city a few years ago. Oh my word, they are heavenly. 

This past weekend, we were in PCB and I couldn't wait to get my Spudnuts fix. The cream-filled (NOT CUSTARD!!) long johns are my absolute favorite. I also split a cinnamon sugar twist with Greg. 

Love, love, love.

Pancakes are another welcomed treat for me. I have pancakes much more often than doughnuts, but I still have to have an excuse to opt for pancakes rather than a more nutritious meal. Last week, I met with my good friend Hannah at The Village Bakery for breakfast and some good spiritual talk. As my first time at the restaurant for a sit-down meal, I knew I had to do it right. Pancakes it was!

It was so worth it. The fruit on the side cancelled out any negatives, right? These pancakes, and my time with Hannah of course ;) , were the highlight of my day.

Doughnuts and pancakes are great, but you know what never gets old? Good old fashioned PB&J.

Eating a PB&J sandwich while driving is optional. Driving or not, it only takes one bite to realize it's a classic for a reason. If you use whole wheat bread, all-natural peanut butter and all-natural jelly or preserves, there's no reason to feel guilty either. Paired with an apple or some baby carrots and you've got a perfectly simple and satisfying lunch. 

You + PB&J...make it happen. You know you want to.
