Snacking before bed is Good. There is nothing wrong with having a snack before we go to bed. It is easy to stay up late finishing a project or cleaning up before bed, and as you get ready for bed you realize the last time you ate was dinner, many hours ago. Nothing is worst than going to bed with a grumbling stomach.
4 important facts about snacking before bedtime.
1- It should be only a snack
2- Choose a snack that won’t keep you up.
3- Snack we pick should be light on the stomach and low on fat content.
4- No sugary, caffeinated, or spicy food.
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
3- Greek yogurt
4- Cottage cheese
6-White Meat Turkey
7- High fiber cereal

So sweet and delicious these beautiful fruits originally from China are in season from October to February.
More than 100 varieties we are only familiar with two. The fuyu and hachiya persimmons. The fuyu variety the flat and round shape is full of flavor when they are just soft to the touch, but the acorn shape the hachiya needs to be perfectly rip, very soft to touch before it is sweet and flavorful.
Loaded with vitamins, persimmons are good for our heart, immune system, and are an excellent source of powerful antioxidants like carotenoids and flavonoids.
Pears have been around for 3000 years, and are a great source of immune-boosting vitamin C., antioxidants, high in fiber so great for digestive system, helps with dehydration, reduces fever, and are a great pre or post workout snack.
Choose any sliced bread that you prefer, but we think when Bartlett pears ripen they are super juicy and sweet.
With so many choices, all we have to remember is that plain yogurt has probiotics that are good for our guts, and has calcium to keep our bones strong, and protein for our muscles.
Organic Greek yogurt adds more thickness to smoothies and parfaits. It is high in protein while still being low-cal. There is about 100 calories in a 6-ounce container of plain, non-fat Greek yogurt. With fruits and honey added to plain yogurt we can lose the extra calories added sugar, and additives from flavored yogurts.
