The fiber in the apple and the healthy fat in peanut butter are the key nutrients that will stave off those late-night tummy grumbles. Natural peanut butter should be used because regular peanut butter is chock-full of unhealthy fillers.
If your late-night cravings have you wanting something more dessert-like, a single-serving of chocolate pudding will do the trick. One serving is just enough to fill you up and you can even look for brands that are made with minimal ingredients and additives.
If you’re not sold on the nutritional value of a store-bought pudding cup, perhaps you can make your own healthy chocolate pudding to control what goes in it.
Peach + Non-fat Cottage Cheese
If you’re more of a cheese and fruit person, then you might enjoy a peach with a side of non-fat cottage cheese for your next bedtime snack. This snack is full of protein and fiber, as well as the added nutrients of calcium and vitamin C.
