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.
This mornings rainy weather called for pancakes whilst listening to doo-wop music in the background. I usually make buttermilk pancakes but during our recent grocery run I picked up Kodiak Cakes peanut butter crunch mix. I improvised todays breakfast which turned out to be better than I thought and I’m glad Marcin liked them 😊
These pancakes are topped with strawberries, cacao nibs,peanut butter, syrup and Reese’s peanut butter crunch cereal (you can substitute for vegan cereal)
I’m usually not much of a chocolate lover but believe me when I say I am hooked! This couture chocolate by Jean Thompson definitely satisfied my chocolate craving and then some. Jcoco transcendence starts from the 100% recycled packaging to the all natural, non-gmo chocolate. Jcoco also donates a portion of sales to Food Banks in New York,San Francisco, Seattle and Boston.
The packaging has a velvet matte feel and inside contains 3 beautifully wrapped 1. ounce bars with mod yet trendy photographs, the chocolate is wrapped with a rose gold wrapper and inside contains the delicatable chocolate, it melts in your mouth…its addicting! You can literally see the coconut shavings as stated it contained which is a great thing because its not overly processed or artificial coconut. I must admit, I ignored the suggested servings as my taste buds wanted more!
A couple days later I had reached for a kit-kat bar as it was in close reach and It just wouldn’t do, it didn’t satisfy my craving I could even taste the low grade quality in comparison to Jcoco.
If you don’t believe me I recommend you purchase one or two for yourself or gift it to anyone with a sweet tooth.
