yesterday, for no reason at all, i gave suki a small bowl of adam's homemade vegan ice cream. she was thrilled! she commented after every bite about the bowl being only for her. although the portion size was small (the amount shown in the picture was about as much as i gave her), and as happy as she was to have it, she did not finish it! it seems she is sensitive to sweet tastes even though she can eat a lot of very flavorful foods. she loves spices, garlic, pickles, etc. but i have noticed that when she eats sweet things, she takes a LONG time and usually does not finish it. michael pollen claims sweetness to be a basic human desire. hmmmm.... really?
these are some of suki's favorite (no processed sugar) snacks-
olives with vegan cheese and crackers
toast with pb
toast with earth balance
YOGURT (soy or almond)
peanut butter and apple slices
cucumbers and carrots with hummus
baked apples with vegan yogurt
i am excited to be making this special treat for her this week- can't wait!
do you have a favorite simple & healthy kid friendly snack?
