I’m sure I go through the same lunch ruts as most people. There are only so many sandwich and salad combinations you can make! But this sandwich stays in my rotation and can change with the seasons. The mix of peanut butter and fresh berries covers up the flavor of the carrots and lettuce, but you still get in some vegetables. Not bad for a workday lunch!

    This looks like the best peanut butter sandwich ever! I’ve been making peanut butter and jelly with lettuce for YEARS. Adding carrots? I gotta try that!
