Peanut Butter and Banana Breakfast Sandwich
This sandwich (also called The Elvis) isn’t complicated, and it makes an incredibly filling breakfast.

We love thin buns for sandwiches — and now for pizzas, too! Top sandwich thins with fresh mushrooms, green peppers, egg whites, and turkey pepperoni for a fun and tasty breakfast.

From the Diabetic Living Online recipe its Healthy Recipe Substitutions. Check out the Diabetic Living site and their incredible selection of Diabetic Friendly recipes. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2017! http://www.diabeticlivingonline.com/
Make your favorite recipes healthier with a few simple substitutions, and you’ll save on calories, carbs, fat, and sodium. We’ll show you how to enjoy classic recipes on a diabetic diet.
Use Fat-Free Plain Yogurt, Not Sour Cream
When your recipe calls for: Sour cream
Use this instead: Fat-free plain yogurt
Best for: Sauces and some baked goods
Sour cream is cream treated with lactic acid to give it the trademark tangy flavor. Yogurt has a slightly different tang, but it’s a good substitute in most savory sauces and dips. For sweet dips and sauces, you can use a flavored fat-free yogurt, such as vanilla or strawberry. Yogurt will also yield similar results when substituted for sour cream in baked goods…..
Use Crushed Cereal, Not Bread Crumbs
When your recipe calls for: Fine dry bread crumbs
Use this instead: Crushed fiber cereal
Best for: Coatings and toppings
Fine dry bread crumbs are commonly used as coatings for fried or baked fish or chicken or toppings for vegetable and starch casseroles. Substituting cereal will give you a darker, crunchier coating with fewer calories and less sodium……
Use Yogurt and Cottage Cheese, Not Sour Cream
When your recipe calls for: Sour cream
Use this instead: Equal parts low-fat yogurt and no-salt-added low-fat cottage cheese
Best for: Dips and salad dressings
Dips and salad dressings made with sour cream are smooth, creamy, and have a tangy zip, but they also can be loaded with fat, calories, and sodium. Get the same smooth tanginess by replacing sour cream with a combination of fat-free yogurt and no-salt-added reduced-fat cottage cheese……
