Healthy After-Dinner Snack Ideas: Our Cofounder Interviewed for Molly Sims
The Healthiest After-Dinner Snacks To Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

Anyone with a sweet tooth can relate to after-dinner cravings for sweets. Do I raid the freezer for ice cream? The pantry for cookies? What about that left-over slice of cake in the fridge? (Ahem: us, to ourselves, every day.)

For some guidance, we asked two nutrition pros for their recommendations in this category. At first, we were skeptical, but then we were 100% convinced. (To be honest, some of the experts’ suggestions actually sound much better than that leftover cake.)
