afternoon snack

Home from school, and famished, not much of my snack remained to photograph (sorry). A great way to wake up and cook dinner is a light snack when getting home from school. Today for me it contained toast with goats cheese (on wheat bread i made a few days ago), ceylon tea, and a few dates. According to an article from the orlando sentinal entitled 'for nutrition, make a date with dates', dates "have a high sugar content, making them a good source of energy, and they provide some fiber, protein and vitamin A, and a good bit of potassium. An ounce, or about 3 large dates, is 86 calories." Sounds like a winner in my snack book!
