A Perfectly Portable Snack

Last night while cutting up celery for dinner I thought I would go ahead and cut up some for a snack since I’ll be out of the house doing Navy Reserve work for the next couple of days.  After cutting it up I wished I had an easy way to pack some peanut butter with the celery and then realized that one of my peanut butter containers was almost empty.  I then had a stroke of genius about how to combine this classic combination of celery and peanut butter.

How about just sticking the celery into the almost empty peanut butter container?  Genius!  And talk about reducing and reusing!  Just be sure to cut the celery to the same height as the peanut butter container so it fits inside.

It’s now going to be so easy to throw this one container in my bag and scoop the peanut butter out with the celery during snack time.  And because I’m addicted to sugar, I also added a few chocolate chips to the container.  Yum!

If so, share it in the comments below.

    Very efficient!

    I have been bringing almond butter with shredded coconut, pecans, cut-up banana and cinnamon to work. Very tasty!

    I’m not a huge fan of celery, but I like the idea because it saves me…..um, or saves you from having to do dishes!
