WHEN YOU’RE CRANKY: AP­PLE WITH PEANUT BUT­TER

DRUM - - Health -

If you’re feel­ing cranky it could sim­ply be a sign that your body needs fuel and this com­bi­na­tion of foods gives you a great mix of car­bo­hy­drate and pro­tein.

If you go for just the car­bo­hy­drate you’ll get that much­needed blood-su­gar boost but it’s likely to be fol­lowed by a crash not too long af­ter, and that crank­i­ness will rear its ugly head again.

Com­bin­ing the ap­ple with peanut but­ter gives you a healthy com­plex car­bo­hy­drate as well as some pro­tein and fat, which slows down di­ges­tion and keeps your blood su­gar sta­ble for longer.
