When I want a snack at night I started making a bowl of hot cereal. Unlike cold cereal it seems to take me longer to eat. It is filling (especially oat bran) and it's comforting, soothing to the tummy. This helps you relax enough to get to sleep too. A good way to get in fiber too with nonfat milk or soy it is local low fat too
If you are lucky enough to have a Wegman's supermarket near you check out their "Food You Feel Good About." One that I just discovered for breakfast is "Sunrise Blend with Quinoa Flakes" a delicious cereal you can either add to yogurt for a grab&go breakfast or cook for a great hot cereal. 4g of fiber and 7g of protein per serving- keeps you full all morning481
If you are like me, the protein goal is the hardest nutritional element to meet. To help me meet that goal, I add 1oz or so of walnuts or almonds to my breakfast cereal in the morning. Whether it's a cold or hot cereal, the crunch and protein (not to mention omega-3s) are welcome! 481
Lest your eyes become bigger than your calorie range, be certain to weigh or measure the nuts before including! 211
