healthy LATE night cravings....?

What do you whip up late at night when you have a hankering for a little something?
'and are prone to guilt related to potato chip snacking etc...

often I go for whole wheat toast with peanut or almond butter and banana.... maybe a hemp seed sprinkle.... or popcorn which seems guilt free but then i drown it in butter and salt...

what about you guys?

  1. This should be a nice short thread ... I sometimes keep cottage cheese in the fridge for midnight snacking purposes, but I can't say I've ever had a cottage cheese CRAVING per se.

    1. re: foiegras

      Hummus and/or tabbouleh. Veggie sticks to go with.

      I almost always have some left over dal or sabzi (veggie side) in the fridge. Perfect for snack attacks, along with plain yogurt (always in fridge).

      Tasty and healthy. Good for late nights or any other time.

    2. I always have a salsa craving after dinner- I try to get my fill by dipping carrot sticks or celery sticks in it as opposed to the dangerous chips :-)

      1. I go with low-fat microwave popcorn. It fills the munchy-crunchy need without being very damaging to my overall calorie intake.

        1. popcorn too, I keep both: kettle 98% fat free and the lit butter 98% fat free just to change it up, but if I'm in the mood for guilt Ijust add butter, parm, etc. to it too.

          I love cottage cheese with ground flax and agave nector

          and lite yogurt: fiber one key lime, or vanilla or blueberry - very desserty like!!!!

          1. i'm so boring, but generally leftover steamed or roasted veggies - broccoli, cauliflower, green beans... or raw grape tomatoes.

            i went through a phase as well where i liked a couple of bites of dehydrated, chewy almond butter and some sliced honeydew or the awesome plums i fell in love with last season.

            long ago, when i could still have whey, i enjoyed a protein shake or protein pudding at night.
