Bread and Butter pickles (in the jar) have a different sweet and sour taste if your taste buds need a jolt. these are very low calories. Also, 2 tablsp of peanut butter and 8 oz of FF milk could do the job.

You definitely won't ruin your diet if you factor it into your nutrition tracker and everything fits. In fact, I think it would be bad to NOT eat a night snack considering how long you'd be going without food. They say it's best to eat every few hours.

I'm a savory snacker so I have 100g cottage cheese (low fat), with vegetable crudites and some crackers, on the side I have some pickles (cos I love them pickles) and 1 tsp each of some dips/sauces like chilli, bbq, salsa - just to liven up the tastes. Comes to around 150kcal depending on the sauces.

Sometimes when I'm like URRRG I must cook something (my inner woman calling out) I make huvero rancheros (mexican eggs in tomato sauce minus the tortilla wrap) so make a tomato sauce with some tinned toms, herbs and spices (whatever you want, it doesn't have to be mexican), when its bubbling and nice crack an egg in the middle and put a lid on it so that the egg cooks in the sauce. When the egg is cooked to your liking EAT. Thats around 100kcal, I do the same for breakfast and chop a bit of english sausage in with it for another 100kcals. My favourite breakfast!

I make sure I have about 200 calories left for an evening snack. Yogurt, cottage cheese, sugar free pudding, fruit with a smear of peanut butter, fiber one bar, etc are all snacks that are on my "evening snack" list. :)

Even if I'm not "hungry" I like to have a little something warm at night in the winter. If I'm low on calories left for the day, I'll have a tea. If I have some wiggle room, I'll make a hot chocolate with skim milk (200ish calories).

Some other good options are a bowl of cereal, toast, piece of fruit, chocolate milk, crackers & cottage cheese, pb&j, etc.

I like to mix some nonfat yogurt with blueberries and/ or strawberries, with a little bit of whipped cream on top (and have this with tea, which has flavor and helps fill me up)

I like to eat fruit or veggies. Kale Chips, or roasted chickpeas give me that little bit of salty and crunk that really make me feel like I'm getting away with something without any of the guilt.

Anything at all that you enjoy and that fits in your values for the day.

There are a lot of myths about eating at night turning to fat. These are not true. As long as your snack doesn't interfere with your ability to get to sleep, there is absolutely no reason at all not to have something right up to bedtime.

Just make sure it fits in your totals for the day. Plan for it. :)

I usually eat dinner about 5:30 and I don't go to bed until 11pm. Is there any healthy snacks I can eat around 9ish that won't ruin my diet??
