You may have heard that eating after 8 P.M. is bad if you are trying to lose weight. However, whether or not you gain weight probably has little to do with the time that you eat. In fact, eating healthy food at night can actually have some benefits. Below is a list of healthy snacks that are okay to eat at night:
If you are craving something sweet at night, then you should consider having some chickpea cookie dough. Not only will it tame a sweet tooth, but it is also packed with protein. Additionally, chick peas are a great source of fiber.
Grilled cheese sandwiches are comfort foods for many people. It may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about a healthy snack. However, there are a number of things that you can do to make it healthier. For example, you can use whole wheat bread instead of white bread. You can also add a lot of vegetables to the sandwich and use low-fat cheese.
Ice cream is a treat that many people enjoy. However, a 1/2 cup of ice cream contains 200 calories. That is why if you are looking for a healthier alternative to traditional ice cream, then you should consider trying strawberry banana ice cream. It is very easy to make strawberry banana ice cream.
The first thing that you will need to do is chop up two bananas. You will also need one cup of sliced strawberries. Place the strawberries and bananas in the freezer until they have frozen. After they have frozen, place the ingredients in the food processor. Blend them until they have an ice cream-like consistency.
If you are looking for a midnight snack that you do not have to prepare, then you should consider trying pistachios. Pistachios are packed with many of the nutrients that you need, such as vitamin B6, biotin, thiamin and unsaturated fats. If you are looking for something to go along with your pistachios, then you should consider pairing them with goat cheese. You can also pair them with strawberries or another fruit.
Dark chocolate is another treat that you may want to eat if you are craving something sweet. It is packed with antioxidants, magnesium and iron. There has also been evidence to suggest that dark chocolate can lower blood pressure and improve blood flow.
You can make your milkshake thick and creamy without adding a lot of sugar and calories by adding some casein protein. Casein protein is not only a great source of protein, but it also has anti-catabolic properties in order to prevent the muscles from breaking down after a workout. Furthermore, a protein that is made with casein protein will provide you with calcium, which is necessary for strong bones. In fact, a casein protein milkshake can provide you with about 1/3 of the calcium that you need for the day.
