Long day? Craving a late night snack? Dehydration is actually one of the main reasons for food cravings. First, drink some water. If drinking water still leaves you hungry, make an easy and healthy late night snack. Eating junk food will just make you feel guilty and it’ll actually keep you up later. Try one of these healthy snacks instead:
2. Pomegranate With Greek Yogurt : With about twice the protein and only half of the carbohydrates as regular plain yogurt, Greek yogurt carries a significant nutritional advantage, especially if you’re trying to lose weight. The addition of pomegranates seeds gives you a stimulating, tart flavor from some of the world’s most powerful antioxidants.
