Not Go To Bed Hungry

While staying up late, dinner seems to happen ages ago and pangs of hunger becoming louder, it’s time for bedtime snacks!!!

 

Almost everyone experiences late-night cravings. Eating at night isn’t all bad if you select light healthy late-night snacks. To satisfy post-dinner cravings one should have a fibrous, low sugar healthy eating plan which not only counters attack the hunger pangs but also have a profound impact on your ability to fall asleep.

Some healthy suggestions one can have on the table are

Whole Grain Crackers and Cheese

Whole grains are a source of fibers and vitamins and cheese add protein, calcium, and fats to it. This healthy combination will satisfy the appetite and help the quick digestion of dinner.

Peanut Butter and Fruit Sandwich

Fruits sweeten a peanut butter sandwich without the added sugar of jam. It brings fiber and antioxidants to the party. Try strawberries, blueberries, apples, or bananas. Banana naturally contains tryptophan and berries are rich in melatonin. Both these induce sleep by interacting with the internal biological clock.

Oatmeal with Nuts and Dried Fruit

 Whole grain oats, nuts, and dried fruit make a comforting and healthy bedtime snack. Nuts and dried fruits are natural candies with minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and proteins. This is the best low sugar combination. After the whole day’s work, it will help to regain the basic nutrients of the body and the best solution for craving.

Cottage Cheese and Fruit

Cottage cheese is an often-forgotten option that’s SUPER high in protein. Top it with peaches, berries, or the classic pineapple with honey for a filling bedtime snack.

 

Pizza, French fries, Burger Chicken wings, or ice cream are stereotypical suspects which give late-night snacks synonym of junk food. No matter the reason, it’s not good to sleep hungry. So these can be replaced by healthy ones.

Healthy alternative to French Fries

  • Crispy Avocado Fries: Instead of frying potatoes for late-night snacks baked avocado possesses more healthy fats and nutrients than fries.
  • Baked Carrot Fries: When it comes to late-night snacking, getting more nutrients while eating fewer calories carrots are always a good choice. Their carbohydrate content is low so it will serve as a smart choice.

Healthy alternative to Ice Cream

If your stomach cries for ice cream at night, then tackle it with healthy substituents like

  • Sorbet: Fruit-based sorbet fills in for ice cream even in the most pressing snacking occasions.
  • Yogurt with Honey: Scoop some yogurt into a mug and drizzle it with honey. Pop it in the freezer and wait for about 10 minutes. Take it out and enjoy some not-quite-frozen yogurt that will satisfy your need for a creamy frozen treat. Try adding cinnamon, orange slices, and anything else that suits you. It is less creamy and night friendly.

 

Since it is getting late and you want to sleep after dealing with these cravings so spicy foods should be avoided as it causes indigestion and heartburn. Consuming too much liquid is also not good as it will keep you up by many midnight bathroom visits. Caffeine is a stimulant that makes it more difficult to fall asleep.

Have a sound sleep stomach……!!!
