5 Late Night Snacks That Feed Your Craving and Help You Lose Weight
June 16, 20152 min read
It's passed 10 pm (my cut-off for night eating) but my stomach's rumbling and I could really use a quick snack. We've all been there, right?
Turns out, late night eating isn't as dangerous as you think. But only if you're reaching for the right foods. According to Jen McDaniel of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, eating carbs at night actually aids in sleep, while protein can help build up your muscles even when you're resting. Here are 5 yummy snacks that really satisfy without stacking up the calories!
#1 Cottage Cheese and Pineapple
