Who else has noticed it’s getting darker earlier in the evening, and the sun is rising later? Sheesh! I’ve been starting my day hours before the sun rises and ending it after the sun has set. I know I’m not alone. November 5th is Daylight savings time and this means winter is coming, and I’ll be hibernating for the next 5 months. But, that doesn’t mean I need to eat like a hungry bear digging through a garbage can… Today I’m sharing five healthy bedtime snacks that won’t bust your gut.
We’re all trying to pack as much into the daylight hours as possible, and we all end up with minor aches and pains, right? So. Freaking. Tired. And achy, and hungry, and busy, and my mind is going a million miles a minute. I need to satisfy this growling stomach, and help relieve those minor aches and pains that are preventing me from a good nights sleep. Don’t you?
The day after a bad nights sleep due to an achy shoulder is always the worst. It always seems to ache when I do some overhead chores around the house, the littlest things can cause an ache, like changing a light bulb. I know right? I know you have a little ache that sneaks up on your too. It can make tomorrow miserable unless you tackle it before bed.
Five Healthy Bedtime Snacks
No cookie crumbs in our bed this winter….maybe. For now we’re sticking to some better for you snacking options. I’m sure the cookies will make their appearance about half way through winter. But for now, we’re going to try to be good. So here are our better snacking options that get us through each week.
Who doesn’t love grapes. We love green and purple grapes and they make a nice bedtime snack. Don’t you agree? They’re full of water too, so that helps keep us hydrated while we’re snacking before bed.
Poppin’ Pumpkin Seeds
OH YES! We love poppin’ pumpkin seeds in the old trap. Not just during the dark evenings of fall, either!
You can either make your own with all the pumpkins from your fall decor, or you can find them prepackaged right along with the nuts at your local grocer.
Almonds, peanuts, and pistachios round off our list of favorites. Nuts make a delicious and super easy bedtime snack. They’re filling and certainly better for you than a pile of cookies! Notice I did say better for you..not better tasting! haha
Turbo even knows when it’s bedtime!
Chunks of Cheese
This one I could take it or leave it. I’m not all that into cheese. I’d rather just have the grapes or apples. Katie likes cheese though, so I usually just have a different snack while she’s chomping on cheese. 🙂
Apple slices! You can have apple slices with basically anything. I like the apple and peanut butter combination.
Of course Katie likes apples with…you guessed it, cheese.
Sippin’ on Water
When we do decide to have a bedtime snack, we always have a glass of water too.
