Is it unhealthy to eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich every day for lunch?

    Not necessarily unhealthy, but not the best choice. Peanut butter has some protein, but also a lot of fat, and all peanut products have aflatoxins, which can be an issue. The fats in many peanut butters aren't the best option Bread and jelly are mostly sugar with little or no nutrient value.  They provide calories and glycogen for energy, but they can also cause a spike in blood sugar and insulin.

    Most of us would do better with getting more nutrients from higher quality protein and vegetables.

    If you are an active person peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are not unhealthy for you. As long as you are burning off the sugars in that sandwich, the remaining elements in it have some pretty good nutritional benefits. Especially in the peanut butter.

    Not the jelly or the bread.   They, are why you are fat and unhealthy AKA ill.

    Sugars outside of whole foods cause liver dysfunction. 

    If the PB is sweetened or is no-stir, it likely also has trans fats AKA hydrogenated oils. 

    Trans fats are like fructose and alcohol in that regular use causes liver dysfunction.
