when the midnight hunger pangs kick in….here are some healthy snack ideas

Late Night – Midnight  Snacking….can be hazardous to your waistline. Eat early, eat slow and eat when you aren’t stressed out. But if the late night munchies are calling out to you and you cannot ignore them, here are some great snacks to dive into:

1) Plain Popcorn (without the butter)- has just 31calories a cup. Make your own at home with store-bought kernels and avoid the calorie-dense microwave packed versions.

2) In-Shell Pistachios – Possibly due to the fact that by the time you’ve removed those delicious pistachios from their shell, you are ready to hit the sack and have consumed 41% fewer calories than if they were out of their shells already.

3) Frozen Grapes – They have a creamy texture making it the perfect treat when you’re on the hunt for something cold and sweet.

4) String Cheese – Not just for kids! Low fat string cheese pack protein to help satisfy those cravings and peeling them strip by strip mentally gives your mind a satisfied feeling. The Syrian String Cheese called “Jibneh mshallaleh”  is an excellent replacement to the “Western” version if you enjoy it! Get it at your local carrefour or union co-op store.

5) Kiwi – These fuzzy fruits are the ultimate snooze snack as researched by Taiwanese scientists. Have one before bedtime and you might snooze 45 minutes faster with better sleep.

6) Baby Carrots – These bite-sized gems that pack a crunch and are sweet while being loaded with vitamin A to improve vision, immunity and bone health are the perfect treat. Sure, you can dip them in hummus too – just don’t go for a whole bowl as it’s close to midnight!

What are some ways to cut back on calories without sacrificing on the healthy nutrients?

1)      REDUCE YOUR MORNING COFFEE DRINK
Downsize from a low fat medium latte that can pack over 190kcal to a small sized skimmed milk latte and save around 90kcal (as well as those dirhams!). Better yet, stick to a clean brew (coffee of the day) and add a splash of skimmed milk. No sugar if you can make it!

2)      STOP DRINKING SPORTS-GATORADE-DRINKS
Sports drinks are packed with unnecessary calories so unless you are really sweating it out in the gym and working out strenuously, rehydrate instead with plain old-fashioned and very good for you water. You’ll save around 200kcal! At The Hundred, we serve refreshing complimentary cold water with cucumber and lemon – your welcome.

3)      KEEP A DETAILED FOOD JOURNAL
Note down what you’re eating everyday of the week and you are more likely to watch out for unnecessary food consumption. Research has shown that people who keep a food diary are more likely to be successful in losing weight and keeping it off as it provides you with an accurate overall picture to help fine-tune your diet.

Keeping a detailed food journal helps you control your calorie intake!

4)      SNACK SMART
So fair enough – life is too short to cut out snacks completely. Keep munchies to no more than 100 to 200 calories each such as cut-up veggies from cucumbers, carrots, broccoli and a healthy hummus dip or low fat labneh with a teaspoon of zaater in there.
