What Do You Like To Eat For A Midnight Snack?

Canada
March 11, 2009 2:28am CST
Tonight I got up and finished off the salad that was in the fridge. I put it in the biggest bowl I could find, poured Thousand Islands dressing over it, and enjoyed the heck out of it. The other night I had an avocado with Thousand Islands dressing, and the night before that I found some cheese to eat. For whatever reason I seem to like to eat in the middle of the night. What does everyone else like for their midnight snack?

Chips I feel is a good option and as you have said salad is all time good, but in case its not available, I think chips are good to have...

Unfortunately I have gotten back to eating a bowl of cereal late at night. Probably not the best thing to do but at least it's not sugary kiddy cereal. I was hooked on the new Special K Vanilla and Almond when it was half price at the pharmacy. Now at over $4 a box I will not buy it. Other cereals were on at a local grocery store for $1.99 this past weekend so I stocked up. We are all big cereal eaters in this house - morning, afternoon and evening. I can't eat salads due to my IBS. Greens do not agree with me.

For some reason I always love to eat potato chips in the middle of the night.

Oh boy. Farmland Cheddar chips and/or a peanut butter sandwich. I just finished a sandwich a minute ago. I unfortunately like to snack while I'm reading on the internet

I like a good quality ice cream (no high fructose corn syrup in it - allergic to corn) topped with cinnamon. This works out so good because the cinnamon makes it taste so good. I tend to put a lot of cinnamon on instead of just a sprinkle. Also, the cinnamon helps keep blood sugar even. I also like something warm on a cold evening. Sometimes a nice cup of warm milk is just the trick to make my sleepy.

I'm usually sleeping at midnight, but before I go to bed I love a bowl of ice cream !! I like to put it in the microwave for a few secs so its a little soupy . I put chocolate syrup and carmel syrup on it and stir it up and enjoy!!! I could get in a habit of eating ice cream every single night ! yummmmy !

Brown sugar toast. Sounds wierd, but so good. First, just make toast, then butter the toast, and then spread a thin layer of brown sugar over the butter. You have to do it all right away, though, so the brown sugar has a chance to get a warm and melty over the butter.

Hi danishcanadian I won't eat anything after my dinner. I won't get up in midnight.If at all I wake up and feel hungry,I will have some plain water. I am of the opinion,that the digestive system should have complete rest at night. When you eat something in the midnight,your sleep also likely to be disturbed. Happy mylotting

I tend to eat whatever is easy for me to fix. I will sometimes eat leftovers from meals or I'll grab some bread and make myself a quick sandwich. Sometimes I'll grab a handful of chips or even cereal or something. I don't like eating stuff that's more difficult for me to get my hands on. I hate making a mess at night. It's a pain to clean up.

A couple of years ago I was doing some studies in foods and nutrition and came across a sizable amount of information concerning dehydration amongst people in developed areas. It is surprisingly high. Even being a little dehydrated can lead to slower thought processes physical fatigue, moodiness and especially a decline in quality of sleep. one of the key things that was mentioned about curing the world of dehydration was in reference to the "midnight snack habit". Every book and article mentioned it. They all also said the same thing. Stop eating midnight snacks and just drink a couple of glasses of water. It curbs what you think is hunger (turns out it's dehydration) and helps give you a better quality of sleep. So i suppose my short answer to "what do you like to eat for a midnight snack" would be WATER!

I don't know if you can call it midnight snacking all the time. My fiance and I enjoy third shift schedules from time to time, and therefore around midnight is sometimes our lunch hour instead of it being a midnight snack. Either way if there is left overs we usually eat them, unless we are left over'd out, and then we'd probably eat pizza bites or something like that. Also if there's veggies in the house we'll eat them.

Anything I can find at home. A midnight snack is a bonus meal for me to keep me awake if I need to stay up late. Often the snacks are cookies, biscuits or chocolates. At times, it is cut fruits.

Usually the midnight snack that my husband and I enjoy is either a bowl of popcorn or ice cream right out of the container. I usually prefer the popcorn...he is the ice cream addict.

I seldom have midnight snack because I think that would be fatening to me. If I am really hungry and if I don't eat and I wouldn't be able to fall asleep, then I will have a cookie and some milk instead. Sometimes when my crazy mood gets me, I would have a cup noodle but that doesn't happen too often (thank God!).

it doesnt really matter anything i can find to me foods food iam one of those people that gets a craving for something and they will try anything until they find out what that craving is for example you fix something to eat and think thats what you want but when you eat it its not it all usually when this happens to me a pizza solves my problem.
