HUNGER DILEMA: Is there a good late night snack?
My work sometimes keeps me out for odd and long hours. I can not always prepare for this in advance. There are times I don't get home until close to 9 pm. I am, many times, famished when I get home. Is there a good and healthy snack I could eat at that late hour? If I go to bed hungry, I don't get a good nights sleep.GaryK by:
Are you on ignite? If so I would make a mini-meal from the acceptable foods list. Your body still burns calories even though you're sleeping so I wouldn't worry about eating so close to bed especially if your eating pattens are sporadic due to work. (I've been there!)
If you aren't on ignite, here are some of my favorite evening snacks:
Turkey and a little bit of cheese
Dark chocolate dipped strawberries (Melt two dove dark chocolates and dip about 6 strawberries in it, pop in the freezer for 1 minute to harden. it's under 110 calories! You can melt the chocolate in the microwave, just stir it every 10 secs until it's half melted and stir in the bowl until fully melted. Be careful the bowl can get quite hot, I found that out the hard way once!)
Frozen fruit & yogurt smoothies- there are so many recipes out there with a variety of fruits and veggies in it.
Crunchy veggies & peanut butter
Handful of nuts & a big glass of water
Hope this helps spark some ideas and some great sleep!
I am glad someone else had this problem. I get home late at night too. I am trying to eat healthy foods when I get home, but I do eat unhealthy foods as well. I need to find a way to eat healthier foods when I get home so I can avoid eating unhealthy foods.
