Easy Snack

Rice Cakes: Do you Love ’em or Hate ’em??

I have been meal prepping which has been successful the past 2 weeks, but one thing I forgot to incorporate was snacks! How could I forget?! as a junk food lover I usually opt for a mini size candy bar or a small prepackaged fruit pie but even those aren’t the healthiest. Today I was craving something sweet and there was no candy bars or fruit pies to suffice my sugar craving.

During my last grocery run I brought whole wheat rice cakes as a healthy snack but no matter what flavor they are, it just taste too plain so I threw on some fruit, peanut butter and ground cinnamon for flavor and it tasted just fine! I should’ve added some flax seeds and cacao nibs for the added fiber and antioxidants.

I’m really excited to share with you this recipe I found online, it is so easy and delish! You can find the original recipe by clicking Smitten Kitchen

Since becoming Vegetarian I look for recipes that obviously don’t contain meat but are also quick, easy meals. A tip for next time would be to cut the eggplant slices thicker. (I cut them too thin)

I figured this is a great appetizer (not sure if you caught on yet but I love small meals) but great for lunch. The next day I had the left over tomato/cheese mix, added a fresh avocado and ate it as a simple salad. It was effortless, filling and healthy.
