Which is better
I love Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches. I was out of jelly the other day and decided to use honey instead. As I was eating it I think i'd eat PB & H if it were better for me.
I know jellys have alot of added sugar, correct? I also know that honey has a lower GI, between 45-55? Do you guys think there'd be any added benifit to switch over to PB&H?Serious Nutrition Solutions Representative

You could just say screw the jelly and honey, go with some raspberries, blueberries, or blackberries. Smash them into the PB and you're good to go. Fruit is better than any processed jelly or fruit spread.
You could also limit the overall carb content by just using one slice of bread (whole grain, of course) and stacking the PB and berries on top. Half the bread as a whole sandwich.
It could work out OK. I don't think honey has much nutritional value at all.

I usually eat it in my post-workout meal, about an hour after my shake somedays. Diet is usually one point throught the day I just look for it as a release from all the damn chicken and rice I eat

i wouldnt worry too much about gi as long as you arent chugging liters of soda, eating tons of junk food, and indulging in candy.
if your calories in < calories out and your macronutrients %ranges are pretty solid, it probably wont be a big difference.
