CINNAMON TAHINI FILLED COCONUT ROLLS
Recipe by Charissa & Co.
Let’s face it keeping healthy snacks at hand can really help out when you get to the late morning, mid afternoon feel, especially when you know you sometimes end up at the vending machine grabbing something that you probably regret.
Best ways to ensure you don’t sneak those unwanted processed snacks into your day, is to make sure you have some healthier swaps at hand. Your direct environment in fact governs your food choices.
When you have whole foods to snack on like fruits, vegetables, nuts, minimally processed products, toasted salt free legumes these are all mostly satisfying and are packed with the nutrients, fiber + protein. Just what your body needs, plus they guard against sugar highs + lows, so you are less likely to succumb to your sweet tooth.
Processed nutrient-poor, sugary snacks like candy bars, or sugar loaded what seems to be healthy “granola bars” are like fuel that runs hot + flames out quickly. They give you a quick jolt of energy that is followed by a crash, letting you down..you become hungry, cranky, sleepy, + unable to concentrate.
Healthy snacks are more like slow-burning fuel that helps you keep going all day
