Midnight snacking is one of my weaknesses. I am usually up pretty late at night finishing up homework or editing videos, and my tendency is usually to go down to the kitchen and grab myself a yummy late night snack. The problem with this? The later at night you eat, your body is more and more likely to store those calories as fat. Eating healthy midnight snacks can help keep you from consuming unnecessary calories!

  1. Greek yogurt: Instead of reaching for the pint of ice cream in your freezer (although very tempting!), grab some sweet, cool Greek yogurt. Top it with frozen berries or honey to add some pizazz to it!greek-yogurt-1
  2. Air-popped popcorn: Instead of reaching for a bag of potato chips, although crunchy and very satisfying, opt for air popped popcorn. Add some salt and a smidge of butter to make it taste just like bagged microwave popcorn, but with much fewer calories.
  3. Almond butter and apples: Peanut butter contains healthy fats, but it is also packed with calories. Get the same nutty, rich flavor from almond butter, and dip slices of your favorite type of apple in it! Salty AND sweet.
  4. Chocolate: Yes, chocolate! But the RIGHT kind of chocolate. Two squares of dark chocolate are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth and have way less sugar and more antioxidants.

Happy snacking!

XOXO, Chels
