Evenings are the best part of the day, the sky in its orange haze and birds chirping melodiously, its a sight to behold, but evenings bring with them snack time. Snack time is the hardest, you’re hungry because you had lunch a couple of but you can’t eat too much because it’ll be dinner time in an hour or two. Confusing isn’t it? What adds more to confusion is the desire to eat healthy.

Admittedly, all of all get peckish during snack time, and it is not easy to stay away from them chips and fries. Evenings are times when you’re probably at work and a fruit doesn’t seem enough, you want something filling, delicious and easy to make and carry around, we get you and we’ve come up with a recipe that is full of nutrition, easy and super delicious.
