Most of the Cooking Cure challenges we've looked at so far have to do with actually cooking breakfast or lunch. Today, here's something a little different: Let's say you pack a healthy lunch, but then really want a slice of cake. That's vintagejenta's question today — how do you hit that sweets craving after lunch?
Editor: Ooh I can so relate to this! Here are three of my mid-afternoon sweet snack solutions:
- A cup of spicy chai tea with honey and milk
- One (or two!) of these caramel corn rice cakes
- A bag of microwave popcorn with a tiny bit of honey drizzled in and shaken up while still hot.
And if all that fails to hit the sweet spot, well, Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches are a reliable backup.
Readers, what else would you suggest for vintagejenta's afternoon sweets craving?
Can you help vintagejenta cure her cooking problem?
