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.
My brothers girlfriend Francheska introduced me to this easy yummy snack, it’s great for those hot days of summer.
It’s really easy to prepare. Pre-wash. Put in a bowl. Freeze in freezer. Enjoy.
