Good. There is Nothing wrong with having a snack before going to bed to ease the hunger feeling. We all have those long days that keep us awake way after we had dinner & right before bed the hunger feeling Keeps us from falling sleep.

Two important things before we eat.

1- it should be only a snack

2-  a snack that won’t keep you up.

* Snack we pick should be light on the stomach and low on fat content.

* No sugary, caffeinated, or spicy foods.

Any snack with complex carbs and protein will release amino acids into our body that could actually help us sleep better at night.

Here is a list of 10 snacks :

1- Peanut butter

2- Pistachios

3- Greek yogurt

4- Cottage cheese

5- Popcorn

6-  White Meat Turkey

 7- High fiber cereal

8- fruits

9- whole wheat cracker

10- dates & nut butter
