Week 3 - Nutrition: Late Night Snacking
Let me paint you this scenario: you had a great dinner, you're getting close to lights out but yet you don't feel satisfied. You're battling in your head,"Should I eat something this late or wait until the morning?" Then you fall prey to your appetite and open up to the light that breaks the dark: your refrigerator. I don't want to speak for people, but the majority of the time, we make bad decisions. We're human: we know what's good for us but yet we don't even follow simple directions and make poor decisions.
Here's a couple of websites where I found some great late night snacks to curb those cravings.
Cottage Cheese - Low Calorie, High Protein
Greek Yogurt w/ Pomegranate - Low carbs, high protein, antioxidants
Pistachios - Reduces Cardiovascular disease
Fermented Coconut Milk - Low Calorie, Prebiotics
Popcorn - Low Calorie, light snack
Fruit Salad - Low Calorie, nutrient packed
And since you asked for it...
Here's some awesome and creative recipes!
