Dish It: Midnight Snacks

Dish It: Midnight Snacks

“Late-night” should not be considered “prime time” for preparing an all-out feast, but if it’s late and hunger strikes, why not treat yourself to a healthy midnight snack? Some fresh fruit or a handful of nuts are always a great option but consider drinking a glass of water first. According to the website, She Knows, our bodies often confuse hunger with thirst and, therefore, it might be beneficial to down some H2O before diving into a snack. After ten minutes, if you’re still hungry, feel free to whip up this easy personal-pizza recipe (courtesy of Glamour’s website)…

What You’ll Need:

English muffins - only 100 calories!

- one 100-calorie English muffin
- 3 oz of tomato sauce
- 1 oz of part-skim mozzarella cheese

What You’ll Do:

1) Cut the English muffin in half. I like to warm it up (just slightly!). If you don’t have a toaster, place it in the microwave for about 10 seconds.

2) Spread the sauce on top of the muffin. Sprinkle on the cheese and enjoy!

This low-calorie snack will fight off your hunger pains without the grease of a real pizza! Have any midnight snack suggestions of your own? Post a comment below!

    Sounds great. I’ll have to try that one. Here are a couple more ideas:

    a bowl of high fiber cereal with skim milk
    whole wheat pita bread with hummus
