The 7 Best Late-Night Snacks
…coming home from a long, hard day at work. Not to mention, the sweetness of the apple, mixed with the tartness of cheese will help stop your sweet and savory tooth!
4. 10-12 unsalted pretzels
Not only are pretzels a great alternative to potato chips, but they also naturally increase your blood sugar and insulin levels, so you can fall asleep faster. Add a glass of water after eating the pretzels and you’ll feel full…seriously.
5. 1 banana with a tablespoon of almond butter
Bananas are loaded with potassium and magnesium – great for relaxing your muscles and nerves right before you go to bed.
6. Handful of cherries with a ½ cup of Greek yogurt
Cherries boost your body’s supply of melatonin, a hormone that’s known for inducing sleep. Or you could blend it up and make a smoothie.
7. A good-ole small portion of food
Instead of eating until you’re full or denying yourself of your favorite meal, just eat a little bit of it. What is a little? If it can’t fit in the palm of your hand (roughly three inches in diameter), it’s too much. That way you eat what you want, but just not all of it.
