Obviously we’re going to get hungry too. So instead of making instant noodles which are not healthy, why don’t you try these 10 healthy snacks! They taste great and are also easy to make! 

1. SWEET POTATO CHIPS

The potato chips from the store are always so salty and not the best option to stay fit. And those packs always contain mostly air hahaha!

But if you are still craving for something similar, try microwaved some sweet potatoes! Sweet potatoes are rich in antioxidants! So it’s way healthier.

All you need to do is slice 1 sweet potato into thin slices. Place them in a bowl and add some olive oil and season with just a pinch of salt. Arrange them on a tray lined with parchment paper then pop them in the microwave for 4-5 minutes. Once you see it become crips and browned, it is ready to be munched on! 

2. APPLE & PEANUT BUTTER

OH BOY. I wish I tried this combo sooner!

Not only does it taste sooo good, this snack is going to provide you lots of nutritional benefits since it is packed with fibre and protein. So just slice your apple into bite sized-pieces and then start spreading 1 or 2 tablespoons of your favourite peanut butter on it!

3. POPCORN

Ok I’m not talking about the popcorn you buy from stores, i’m referring to homemade popcorn. Why homemade? Because it is healthier (yes just like you guessed).

All you need is some popcorn kernels, oil and salt. It would be better to choose extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil or avocado oil. Mix them all up and put them in the pot. Make sure to close the pot with lid and start cooking. Then enjoy them as you watch your favorite late night shows!

4. YOGURT & FRUITS

Instead of ice cream, try to go for yoghurt to give you that same creamy feeling. Get the low-fat or Greek version instead of the flavored ones to ensure that they are low in sugar and carbs.

Throw in some of your favourite fruits, perhaps some blueberries or raspberries. Granola would be great too for added flavor and texture. This is going to be a snack bowl filled with beneficial ingredients for your body which also pack a punch of flavour.

5. PISTACHIOS

If you love nuts, get pistachios.

They are loaded with minerals and vitamins; vitamin B6, fiber, protein and magnesium. Another plus point – they also promote a good night’s sleep.

Avocados are slowly becoming super popular because of the healthy fats they contain. They also are packed with lots of magnesium and potassium

So this is going to be a nutritionist-rich late night snack! What you gotta do is spread some of the avocado on a slice of toast and that’s it! If you like, you can sprinkle a little bit of black pepper or grated parmesan for added flavor.

8. TURKEY SANDWICH

If sandwiches are your thing, you can also go for the Turkey Sandwich.

Turkey contains tryptophan, which is perfect for increasing melatonin levels in your body.If you don’t know, melatonin is actually a hormone that helps treat insomnia and improve sleeping conditions. So just layer a few turkey slices between some bread (whole-grained preferred of course), add in some lettuce and tomatoes and you’re done! You can sparkle some black pepper and maybe just a tiny bit of mayo.

9. GOJI BERRIES

Also known as wolfberries, it contains high amounts of melatonin. And by now you should know that melatonin is great to help you sleep!

It also is packed with vitamin A in C and is high in antioxidants. See just so many health benefits right? So you can eat them raw but I prefer adding them to some herbal tea or soup.

10. OATMEAL

Yes, even for midnight snacks! Not only breakfast!

The complex carbs which are slow to digest in your body, will be able to control your blood sugar levels so it doesn’t spike up. Plus, they are warm, so it will be soothing. If you’re worried about it tasting too bland, you can add some chopped fruits (my favourite is bananas!) and maybe drizzle some honey

And that’s about it! Happy snacking and sleep well!
