Saving the World one sandwich at a time

pbj.jpgSo, what are you having for lunch?

Doesn't sound like an earth shattering question, but the people at the PB&J Campaign think differently. They are encouraging people to eat more peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to help slow global warming, save water, and save land from deforestation, overgrazing, and pesticides. This is over other lunch alternatives such as burgers or ham sandwiches or even cheese sandwiches. This is all based on eating lower on the food chain and, thus, having a smaller environmental impact. They run the numbers and it's pretty astounding. And, if you are sick of peanut butter and jelly, they suggest some tasty alternatives.

Also, I have to say, their website layout and design is very tasteful and fun.

So, what are you having for lunch?


Can't get enough PB&J...

Hmmm...I wonder how much more my kids save by skipping the jelly. Yep, that's right...both my boys prefer plain PB to PB&J--and my youngest would just as soon skip the bread part, too. Just a spoon and a jar, and a glass of milk...

Ooooo! OOOooo! Take a look at this contest! Your kids can be eco-friendly AND maybe win some big bucks for college! So far, my youngest is proposing something incorporating peanut butter, macaroni and cantaloupe... ;-P

Really, just peanut butter slather between 2 chocolate bars of your choice. That's all you need. When I was pregnant with my third, I got curious about that old "You got chocolate in my peanut butter" commercial... It was my meal of choice through the second trimester and I had to forcibly wean myself from it :)
