Late Night Snacking: A Healthy Option...

Sometimes, even after a good dinner, I can feel a bit peckish in the evening. It’s important not to eat anything too heavy or sweet so close to bedtime as it can affect your sleep, but I have found the perfect night time snack for me.

When I get a late night food craving I reach for a piece of whole wheat toast and spread it with some organic all natural peanut butter and a mashed up banana. It has that perfect salty sweet combination that I love and also has the added benefit of promoting a deep and restful sleep!

Bananas are known for being one of the top foods for helping you get a good nights sleep. They are rich in melatonin and serotonin which have soothing qualities. They also contain magnesium, which is a muscle relaxant.

Whole wheat bread is another good late night food choice as its great for balancing your blood sugar and it’s also rich in serotonin.

If you get a late night craving, try this healthy snack!
