after school snack: ice cream and chocolate chips
After School Snacks used to be one of my favorite things because i was always famished after school and my mom would always prepare the yummiest and healthiest after-school-snacks! so, i have hence dubbed anything that i eat in the afternoon hours my After School Snack.
i pretty much eat around 4 to 5 times per day. call it grazing, call it piglet, call it whatever you like, i need to keep my blood sugar up and snacks to that for me! it could be as simple as a sip of some green juice or a bowl of rice with Miso Mayo or whatever…but i also like sweets:
i’ve blogged about this ice cream before but it’s worth a second post, it’s called Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss and is sweetened with agave nectar which makes it lower glycemic (easier on your blood sugar levels which ultimately effect your metabolism and gauge whether you hang on to fat, etc.)
Eat: i topped my Coconut Bliss Mint Galactica ice cream with some low glycemic grain sweetened (meaning brown rice syrup or barley malt) vegan chocolate chips made by Sunspire, which i always keep in my fridge for a quick sweet fix.
both products can be found at Whole Foods or check your local health food store and you can also purchase the Grain Sweetened Chocolate Chips here.
