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!

Quinoa Polenta Pizza

150-Calorie Vegan Banana Peanut Butter Ice Cream

  1. I was thinking last night about rice cakes or i could just buy a box of puffed wheat and eat them without milk .A long time ago in the late 1980s i used to do aerobic exercise along with a TV show from Canada called, It Figures with Charlene Prickett,this was back when the big thing was VCR"s and workout tapes,during the show she would talk about rice cake"s,I guess i"ll buy some next time i am in the store.
