10 Healthy Snacks You Can Eat At Night
It is important that we know the right food to eat before going to bed. Eating the wrong set of food at night might lead to belly fat, indigestion, obesity or worse. The 10 snacks listed below are healthy to be consumed at night.
Chocolate is often seen as a forbidden food — but not all chocolate is created equal. There is a big nutritional difference between your average convenience-store chocolate candy and cacao-rich dark chocolate. The dark chocolate lacks the high added sugar content of traditional chocolate and instead provides you an antioxidant punch that has been shown to lower blood pressure, improve insulin sensitivity, fight inflammation and improve your mood.
Nuts have been traditionally pitted as a “bad” snack food for weight loss due to their high fat content. But a 2012 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that people who ate almonds lost just as much weight at 18 months compared with people who abstained from eating almonds. In addition, people who ate almonds experienced greater improvements in their total cholesterol and triglycerides — two key cardiovascular disease risk factors. Almonds are also another food that is high in magnesium. One ounce of almonds (about a quarter-cup) can be snacked on raw, roasted or seasoned with your favorite spice like curry or chili powder.
