7 Healthy Snacks To Eat At Night When Hunger Strikes -Really?? Staying up late to study, work, or perhaps, for a Netflix marathon? You have likely heard several “diet rules” about not eating at night or past a certain time of day. But, you don’t need to go hungry or wreck your diet just because you’re burning the midnight oil. This list is your go-to for healthy snacks when hunger strikes you late at night. Keeping your portions smaller late into the night is key – as chances are, you will not be moving much for the rest of the evening to burn off any of those added calories. By sticking to this healthy list, you can fuel up at night to power through your to-do list until bed time! 1. 1 Cup Frozen Grapes – This treat can cure a sweet tooth craving and fill your body with antioxidants. Keep a few bags of grapes in the freezer so you can grab a healthy and refreshing snack in a hurry when hunger hits. 2. Pretzels and Hummus – Pretzels are a low-calorie snack option that are low in fat. Opt for a low sodium option and dip them in some hummus for some added protein. 3. Pumpkin Seeds – If you’re having a tough time falling asleep, pumpkin seeds may help you hit the hay. The seeds contain tryptophan, the same amino acid said to be responsible for the turkey-induced nap after Thanksgiving dinner. Grab a handful if you’re hungry and looking to head to bed soon. 4. Cherries – Cherries contain melatonin, your body’s natural sleep hormone. A cup of cherries is the perfect snack for night owl’s! 5. Toast and Peanut Butter – A slice of whole wheat toast with a tablespoon of natural peanut butter provides your body with a healthy dose of carbohydrates and protein, keeping you full through the night. 6. Parfait – A cup of Greek yogurt topped with chopped nuts and drizzled with honey is a protein-packed snack that seems like a sweet treat. Indulge without the guilt! 7. Get Popping – One to two cups of popcorn drizzled with olive oil is the perfect late night snack if you are one to crave salty snacks. Just remember to eat slowly, rather than snacking mindlessly, to fully enjoy your treat. About the Author: FHMatch, all-in-one `Business in a Box’!
