Make a Natural Difference with Adams® Natural Peanut Butter

national parks One of our family missions is to see the National Parks and hiking around the country is one of the things we enjoy doing. There’s nothing like visiting Yosemite National Park or The Grand Canyon to really put into perspective how big this earth really is. It teaches our children and together we all have a better respect and admiration for the planet in which we call home.

One of our favorite family brands Adams® Natural Peanut Butter also supports our national parks. By offering simple tips for ordinary families like ours to make or communities and homes a better place.

Even if we are a busy family on the go we also try to stay healthy. Packing healthy snacks for a day full of fun is essential for our family. Using Adam’s we recreated these cucumber peanut butter bites.

Adams Peanut Butter Cucumber (7)

Simple and healthy snacking for a large family is easy to do if you plan ahead. I like the idea of filling snacks that we can all munch on.

Cucumber Peanut Butter Bites

Ingredients: 

  • 1 English Cucumber
  • 6 TBSP Adams® Natural Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 2 TBSP mayonnaise
  • 3 TSP chopped red peppers

You’ll want to start by mixing together the peanut butter and mayo. Cut your cucumber into pieces. Using a small melon ball create a whole in each piece off cucumber.

You can make the cucumber any size you like. Make them smaller for bite size snacking or larger for a larger more filling snack.

Fill each cumber with your peanut butter mixture and top with red peppers. I like to add in raisins and put them in the fridge to harden. They make a cool and filling snack on the go and because I know what’s in it I can feel good about making those healthy choices for our family.

  48. Maureen says

  49. Eileen Richter says

    Our family health is better knowing we don’t waste trips in the car. Less pollution and more money saved to help our own families or others. Sadly, even with gas prices SO high, people still scurry all over and think nothing of all the small errands and trips they take that often are needless or can be combined on a single day.

  50. Debra Hall says

    last year i started working with feeding the homeless..this year im going to donate more time at the church

  51. michelle jonassen says

    We recycle and also grow an organic garden in the spring and summer that we not only use for ourselves but for our neighbors. What we do not use, we put out at a road side stand for free so nothing goes to waste.

  52. says

    We live in a very rural area and share/trade crops, bakegoods, veggies and herbs from the garden with our “neighbors”, one year we made pies in exchange for tomatoes,corn and peppers with one farmer, another we had our own garden and shared with another neighbor for eggs. Now that we got our own chickens, we give eggs to a semi local food pantry as well as neighbors and friends frequently.
