I received a question about healthy choices with late night snacking on Tumblr. (BTW if you have any questions, suggestions, comments, or just a hello, don’t be afraid to leave something in my inbox on my Tumblr or Tweet me!) I looked up some healthy choices and, seriously, the first website I visited had almost everything I eat for snacks.
I checked out ThirdAge.com which is a website for women ages 50+ which I just found out lol. But THIS ARTICLE >> Ten Healthiest Late-Night Snacks << includes snacks I turn to, NOT just at night, but also between meals for a quick pick-me-up.
Here are their 10 healthiest (late night) snacks:
1 – Whole Grain Crackers
2 – Cereal (w/low-fat milk for calorie counters)
3 – Whole Wheat Sandwich
4 – Greek Yogurt w/Fruit
5 – Dark Chocolate
6 – Bananas on Toast
7 – Low-Fat Cottage Cheese
8 – Blueberry Smoothies
9 – Fruit
10 – Popcorn
If you click on the article, you can read on how each snack benefits your body. They informed me pretty well even though I knew most of the snacks from eating them, BUT I did not know that Bananas and Toast
“contains complex carbohydrates, which cause your brain to release melatonin, helping you fall asleep more easily.” (ThirdAge 2013)
I am going to try it before bed tonight!
