Bedtime snacks

I'm looking for suggestions for some late night bedtime snacks. Open to just about anything. I've about had enough of crackers and peanut butter, crackers and Swiss etc. Thanks.  blakflag1

Since you are tired of my standard go-to bedtime munchie aka club cracker with Wisconsin aged cheddar, how about my runner-up favs:

 

  • handful of mixed nuts with some raisins or dried cranberries (a former fav of mine but I can't have nuts anymore due to too many gum infections) 
  • A thin slice of turkey rolled up with some dijon mustard
  • Few nachos (Tostitos scoops with a little cheese melted via microwave, then topped with salsa)
  • popcorn (another former fav I can't have anymore)
  • ants on a log (celery with peanut butter and raisins)

A few ideas for you: Snacks

 

One of my favourite munchies in the evening when I'm veging out in front of the idiot box is a saucer with a few marinated olives, some lumps of cheddar, a chopped gherkin and some slices of red capsicum.

How  about crackers and almond butter, crackers and cheddar cheese... :<)

 

It look s like you are aiming for a combo of protein with small amount of carbs...  perhaps because that is helping your morning numbers?  If so look for other combos in that vein-- a couple of slices of apple with cheese, for example, or a small slice of bread with cream cheese or peanut butter, or  a slice of melon with nuts... or plain yogurt with some berries...
