The 7 Best Bedtime Snacks
Does hunger strike you before bedtime? Don’t go to sleep hungry; instead, choose one of these healthy snacks that won’t affect your sleep (neither your diet!).
How often does it happen to you — it’s past 10 pm and you’re venturing a trip to the fridge and cupboards in search of the ice cream pint or tastiest savory snack? Well, I’ve been there too.
Don’t feel bad. That’s how the human body is wired. Most of us are likely to look for the easiest but less-than-healthy food option late at night. The good news is that you can do something about it. When that evening hunger says hello, you run to your cupboard and pick one of these healthy snacks below.
Low Sugar Granola
What about healthy and tasty granola? This one is low in sugar, no dairy, loaded with whole-grain oats, toasted coconut, and dried blueberry.
This granola blend is made of coconut oil, and the brand offers a variety of flavors — from peanut butter to cacao crisp to black cocoa chia.
Dates and Peanut Butter
If you’re craving something sweet but don’t want to take an unhealthy choice, you can try your own version of peanut butter stuffed dates.
But some other fruits pair exceptionally well with peanut butter as well, such as bananas, apples, strawberries, pineapple, etc.

Almonds, brazil nuts, cashew, walnuts. Choose your portion of nuts and indulge yourself. Nuts are rich in protein, healthy fats, and magnesium.
Dry roasted almonds are packed with magnesium — according to specialists, it may improve sleep quality.
Healthy eating doesn’t have to be boring. Veggie-packed dips are a must — you should have at least one or two containers in the fridge.
Chopped zucchini, crackers or baby carrots paired with a tasty plant-based dip can save your savory craving.
This tasty vegan cookie is made with a gluten-free flour blend —a blend of cassava flour, sprouted buckwheat flour, and gluten-free oat flour.
It might be hard to eat just a few of them instead of the whole package. These little cookies are a smaller version of the original cookies and three of them have 140 calories.
Yogurt Topped With Fruits
It’s late in the evening and you’re hungry so if you don’t bother to make them look as lovely as in the picture above, that’s fine!
In this case, you can just take your fave yogurt and toss some frozen berries or any other fruit of your choice, granola, cinnamon, and voilà!
Replace the potato chips with these tasty kale chips. They’re gluten-free, organic, rich in flavor and nutrients.
These delicious chips are made with sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, vegetables, fruits, herbs, and spices, and they’re dehydrated in low heat instead of fried.
