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