Vegan Breakfast Idea | One Point on Weight Watchers

apple slice with peanut butter www.realfoodblogger.com


What does a vegan or someone gluten sensitive eat for breakfast?
That's a good question, and I have a great suggestion.

Apple rings ( slicing the apple through the middle) are fresh, healthy, delicious and no points of Weight Watchers. I use the apple as my base for this delicious breakfast.

Peanut Butter powder which has had the fat removed tastes just like peanut butter with the addition of a little water or nut milk. Two tablespoons of this amazing powder are only 1 point. 

Weight Watchers vegan breakfast apple slice and peanut butter


Two apple rings spread with this hydrated peanut butter and topped with a few sliced bananas is not only a one point breakfast or snack it is outrageously delicious !!

This gluten free and vegan open faced sandwich also makes a nutritious after school snack for kids of all ages! It contains protein from the peanut butter and wonderful vitamins and enzymes from the fresh fruit. It takes minutes to prepare and can be enjoyed by all. 



You could substitute real peanut butter or even almond butter or any nut butter if you are not and counting calories. Topped with raisins is a nice variation for kids.

My Notes: How to Remove  Some Pesticides From Apples
I always buy organic apples since apples are on the Dirty Dozen list of being heavily sprayed with pesticide. A 3 lb bag of organic apples is about $4.99 to $5.99 ( Trader Joe's, Aldi's, supermarkets)  as opposed to $3.99 for a regular bag. It's worth the difference to me.

However, here is a great hack for removing some of the pesticide from Apples.  This infographic appeared in a newsletter from  Healthline which publishes interesting wellness related articles of all kinds. It's worth visiting for some great ideas.

  3. Peanut butter powder is a new one on me, but, in my case, I think peanut butter itself would work just fine. This looks pretty tasty. Simple, but good.

  4. Thanks for the idea for the veggie wash. I always have some baking soda in the house and want ways to remove pesticides when I don't buy organic. This is simple and easy.
