When the weather is cooler, we are inevitably more likely to want to eat more – either due to the boredom of staying indoors, or to generally feel better as the dreary weather makes us more likely to emotional eat.
When on a healthy eating diet plan, the best choices to make are light foods to lose weight that aren’t going to upset our sleep, or high protein, healthy snacks that won’t store on the hips.
Here are a couple of late night healthy snacks to help get you through the colder months – that won’t put on the kilos.
1) Frozen Berries with Natural Yoghurt & Cinnamon
2) Protein Balls
Use date paste, protein powder, flaxseed meal and some coconut oil, roll into balls and freeze. Sneak a couple every time you feel like something sweet. With the natural sweetness of date paste these protein balls will fulfil the sugar craving very nicely.
3) Dry-Roasted Edamame or Chickpeas
Dry roast about a ¼ cup of the legume of your choice and add a little chilli powder or celtic salt to taste.
4) Dark Chocolate Covered Whole Almonds
When hunger strikes at bedtime, grab a pack of Healthy mummy dark chocolate treats from the cupboard. They’re made with at least 75% cocoa and contain less sugar and more antioxidants than their milky cousin.
5) Chocolate Protein Pudding
There are many ways to make protein pudding, but this version is one of the quickest and easiest: Mix one scoop of Healthy Mummy chocolate protein powder with one 200ml carton of Low-Fat Greek yogurt. Blend until completely smooth, then refrigerate until set. Serve plain, or topped with a teaspoon of dark chocolate chips, or fresh berries.
6) Low Carb Coconut Fluffs
These babies are gluten free – take literally 5 minutes and will make you feel satisfied without the bloat. Get the kids to help mix these up and enjoy.
1 Tbsp. Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
1 Tbsp. Coconut butter
30g Cream Cheese
1 Tbsp. Whipped Coconut Cream
Few drops of Vanilla essence
Lightly toast coconut flakes, Stir in coconut butter and heat about 30 seconds. Stir in softened cream cheese and microwave about 30 seconds, stirring until fluffy. Add in whipped cream and vanilla essence; stir until well incorporated. Freeze or refrigerate until firm or enjoy as a chilled dessert.
