Snacking before bed, Good or Bad?

Yogurt peanut butter on toast with peaches breakfast
Yogurt with drizzle of honey, or toast peanut butter topped with slices of peaches

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

Cauliflowers with eggs, and rosemary potatoes

A great side dish, this yummy vegetable has every vitamin required in a healthy diet. Eating it raw or cooked keeps our heart healthy, and is rich in antioxidants that help keep our immune system strong.

*Cauliflower coated in eggs & sautéed .

1- Breakup the cauliflower in small florets. The easiest way is cut the stem and start cutting off the florets individually.

2- In a bowl break 4 eggs add salt & pepper.

3- Boil the florets so you can pick one easily with a fork.

4- Drain the water pick each floret and dunk them in the egg bowl.

5- Place them on their side in a pan with olive oil. Sauté until golden.

Enjoy it ☀️
