Raise your hand if you get the after dinner munchies sometimes. I must confess that my hand is raised at the moment. I like to have a before bed snack occasionally and I find it important to make sure it is packed with protein and light on the carbs.
Why light on carbs? Although it is important to have a balanced diet of carbs, protein and a bit of healthy fat, it has been said throughout the fitness world that carbohydrates close to bedtime may predispose you to a thicker waistline.
One of my tried and true before bed snacks that I like to make for myself is scrambled eggs and salsa. I scramble 3 eggs (minus 2 of the yolks so that it still looks like the scrambled eggs we know and love but healthier). Then I add salsa on top and enjoy. It is a simple dish with lots of flavors and a perfect before bed snack.
