If you’re like me, you love to indulge in late night snacks after the kids are in bed and the chores are done.

Too many snacks though, and your run the risk of overdoing it on calories, which can cause you to pile on the pounds.

Don’t worry – you can still enjoy a yummy snack, just keep it moderate and balance it with your intake for the rest of the day.

Check out my favorite late night snacks and you’ll never go to bed hungry again.

1. Cereal

Cereal

It’s not just for breakfast!

A bowl of cereal is one of the best late night snacks because it’ll help you feel sleepy due to the tryptophan in the milk and it’ll keep hunger at bay until morning comes.

Choose cereal that’s low in sugar to prevent a burst of extra energy just when you want to hit the sack.

A high-fiber, low-calorie choice topped with low-fat milk is perfect.

I like shredded wheat or corn flakes.

2. Popcorn

Popcorn

You can eat a lot of popcorn for very few calories.2

It’s a whole grain too, so it’ll satisfy hunger without making you feel guilty for raiding the bag of chips…again.

Season a few cups of air-popped popcorn with a dash of Parmesan cheese or chili powder for lots of flavor without many added calories.2

3. Turkey and Cheese

Turkey and Cheese

Turkey has tryptophan too, so it’s perfect for a late night snack.

Wrap one slice of turkey around one slice of low-fat cheese and enjoy!

You can have this one while you walk around the house checking the locks and closing the windows and it only takes a minute to throw together.

4. Granola Bars

Granola Bars

Many granola bars are healthy and delicious.

Go for one that’s heavy on oats, nuts and dried fruit and light on added sugar and fat.

Not only will you fill your tummy with fiber, which controls appetite, but the ingredients in a healthy granola bar are full of important nutrients that you need for good overall health.

You can’t beat that!
