Once upon a time, at the ripe old age of 3 (1968), my mother laid out all my favorite foods on our kitchen table and let me put my own lunch together. What I put together would turn out to be my absolute favorite food to this day (2017). I’m talking, of course, about the amazing, the wonderful, the spectacular, the flavorful Peanut Butter and Onion Sandwich! Now unwrinkle your nose and give it a try. You’ll probably find it quickly becoming your favorite food too as did my good friend, ultra-runner Dong Lin. He eats it every day too.
I car-camped in the Santa Monica Mountain Range in March 2017 and lived on peanut butter and onion sandwiches, Guinness and Fireball the entire week. I ate peanut butter and onion sandwiches for every meal and packed them in my pack for whenever I felt I needed a little boost of energy on trail. You can read about my trip on my blog “Trail Tales” at: http://garydavidsonruns.blogspot.com.
Ingredients: Bread (I prefer whole wheat or multi-grain), a fresh onion, and peanut butter. I’ve experimented with many brands of peanut butter over the years and I firmly believe the best is offered from the Vermont Peanut Butter Company (https://www.vtpeanutbutter.com/). They offer 100% natural flavors with no GMOs, no refines sugar, no hydrogenated oils, no preservatives or trans fats. My favorite flavor is Green Mountain Goodness which is a smooth combination of almond and peanuts mixed with flax and pumpkin seeds. Plus, it’s made in Vermont like me so you know it’s good! Try it, you’ll love it too!
