Instead of a PB&J, try a CB&C: smooth cashew butter, bacon, and a bright, crisp-tender carrot salad on top. The perfect savory treat topped with crunchy veggies and crispy bacon. If you have a nut allergy, substitute seed butter or hummus. Make your own cashew butter, or buy it at your local grocery store.
