I have a confession — I am a habitual late-night snacker. I know how bad that is and it’s made even worse because I don’t reach for something smart like an apple — it’s always something on the ‘unhealthy list’. I have always enjoyed something extra to eat after dinner while I am hanging out watching tv or reading a book. It wouldn’t be so bad if I limited myself to something small or healthy but that’s rarely the way I go.
I figured out the reason I reach for the snacks just before bed is because I am the worst at making sure I eat. It’s bad really — I don’t usually eat until dinner time so it’s no wonder I am still hungry. Working from home, taking care of three kids — sometimes I forget about me. It’s so bad for me and I am doing some changes now to make sure I get this back on track.
The first thing I am changing — making better late-night snack choices. Instead of reaching for a bag of chips or a handful of cookies I am reaching for the healthier (& still satisfying) alternatives.
