Midnight Snack Rant

Recommended Posts

Just had a little mini emotional *moment* in the kitchen when there was NOTHING I wanted to eat. So, I'm looking for ideas for quick snacks... but there are restrictions. <_<

-Since I need to eat a late night snack/meal (or I wake up in the middle of the night with anxiety and dizziness), it needs to have some lasting energy/protein. I can't just have a bowl of cereal or rice - too much sugar low when it wears off.

-I need to go kind of easy on dairy. Can have some, but not a lot, and not by itself

-No corn (I try to avoid xanthan gum, too)

-No oats

-I try to stay away from pre-packaged/processed stuff

-Easy to eat and digest (no raw veggies)

-Comfort-type food is best-I'm happier if it's warm, but that's not necessary

-It can't take forever to prepare since I don't want to wake myself up again before bed.

-No microwave at this time!

Things that have worked in the past that I'm tired of (or don't have):



-potato chips/sour cream dip

-roasted almonds

-leftover soup

-guacamole with whatever I feel like dipping in it

Ready, go!

I take a couple tangerines up with me to bed and snack on them when I am reading. I also sometimes will do Snyder Pretzels with some Kraft jarred Chedder Cheese to dip them in.

- Peanut butter with gluten-free crackers, apple slices, banana, or whatever else I have around.

- Hummus with whatever I feel like dipping in it

- Olive tapenade on gluten-free bread. Sometimes I just get a little dish of olives by themselves. The oil in them makes them filling.

- See if you can find a soy cheese you like

- Natural, unsweetened applesauce, maybe with a little cinnamon and some raisins
