Sweet & Salty Mini Rice Cakes with Peanut Butter

2 Jun

It’s snack time.  That awkward time of day between lunch and dinner where you want to wait until dinner to indulge in a nice hearty meal but just can’t get the thought of food out of your head.  You need something to hold you over so you don’t binge eat at dinner time.  That something for me today was sweet & salty mini rice cakes with peanut butter.  Now sometimes I’m craving something sweet – actually, a lot of times I’m craving something sweet.  Sometimes salty.  Today – it was both.

What to do?  I looked around the cabinets and pantry and fridge… half hoping the hunger would subside because it’s 5:30; surely I could make it til dinner!  WRONG!  The more I rummaged, the hungrier I became.

Here’s what I came up with:

How good do those look?  Just a small 170-calorie snack to keep the ol’ tum from growling away until dinner.  6 rice cakes with a dollop of peanut butter on top.  Yes, a perfect combination of flavors to feed my sweet & salty fix!

Happy snacking, everyone!
