Do you feel more productive at work and more alert at night? Well, then we’re on the same team.
It’s okay to do that once in a while but not over a long period of time to sacrifice your health for the sake of work. And you don’t want to add fuel to the fire just because you snack on the wrong thing.
It’s late and your tummy is growling before bed. Check out these healthy snacks to help you go to bed feeling guilt-free with a happy tummy – which means no more tossing and turning with a rumbly stomach and waking up feeling ‘hangry’.
Best part? Each one takes less than 10 minutes to whip up.
If you’re looking to get some extra energy for work, a warm bowl of oatmeal never fails to do so. It has plenty of benefits because they are complex carbs that will break down slowly to control blood sugar spikes (that sometimes messes with our energy and causes us drowsy).
In the meantime, it also soothes our tummy and soul, helping our body relax to prepare for a good night’s sleep.
2. Hummus And Whole-grain Crackers
You can literally grab these two anywhere in a supermarket and pop it up in the middle of your late-night work! You can use the hummus as a dip for the crackers. BONUS: It’s packed with protein that’ll keep you full!
Want to curb your craving so you won’t fall into a full-on food coma? Popcorn is your buddy. The addictively crisp, salty snack is naturally light and has a complex carb factor too – which will keep you fuller for a longer time.
4. Low-fat Greek Yogurt and Fruit
We already know Greek yogurt is a great source of protein, so top your bowl with fresh fruit and crunchy chia seeds to keep us out of whack through the night.
5. A Handful of Mixed Nuts
If you’re lazy like us, not into cooking and cleaning just for a snack or rushing for a proposal, work or tender. A handful of nuts fits the no-cook bill with great high protein content and healthy fats! However, just stick a handful of it, not the whole bag to keep your weight in check.
So ditch your chocolates, ice creams, Maggi mee, thosai and keropok! Replace them with these must-have items for midnight snacks now! 😀
