Anyway, next up in the series--what is your go-to snack? I'm the kind of girl who needs to eat something every few hours or else I will become very hungry and cranky. In fact I recently learned an adorable new word (I think it's British? Betsy, help me!) for meals taken at non-meal hours: elevenses. Perfect, right? Who isn't starving for lunch already by 11?
My food cravings come and go in waves which means that my go-to snack changes every so often. Last year around this time I would have said homemade olive tapenade and crackers. But these days it's tart, juicy, chewy, dried cherries.
My mom was the one who first got me hooked on these. They are totally like candy to us and I think I could probably eat them all day long. Here are my favorite ways to munch on these beauties.
Plain, on their own, by the handful.
Alongside a pile of pita chips and a dollop of hummus (the sweet/tangy, garlicky/creamy, and crunchy/salty combination is just so delicious to me).
On top of a bowl of greek yogurt with a sprinkle of ground flax seed.
With raw almonds and dark chocolate chunks.
Ok, now it's your turn! It's time for your elevenses and the kitchen is stocked--what do you grab?
