10 Healthy Late Night Snacks


We often are woke late in the night for the sudden urge to snack. Maybe that steak and salad didn't hit the spot?! Maybe so. We often head down to the fridge to get the first carton of Ice Cream or maybe even the first bag of chips out of the cabinet. .Those choices. .Not the Best!!
For our "Stay Fit, Stay Sexy" we have 10 of the Best and Healthiest "Late Night Snacks". 
You will be surprised. .you might just see a few all time favorites.
Enjoy!!


Strawberry Shake 

Blend kefir (it's like a liquid yogurt), strawberries, and a teaspoon of honey for a refreshing protein shake that's also chock-full of digestion-enhancing probiotics.

Frozen/Dry Blueberries 

A cup of the fruit is packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and more than 4 grams of fiber. For a richer snack, top them with a little light whipping cream.

Yogurt Cubes 

If you're an ice cream lover, try this lean alternative: pour a homemade smoothie (like the kefir-strawberry mixture above) into ice cube trays, then freeze until slushy.

Multigrain Pretzels 

Whether in stick or twist form, pretzels are a surprisingly good alternative to chips. One ounce—about a handful—boasts just over 100 calories. To add some metabolism-revving protein, dunk 'em in yogurt.

Crackers

 For a nutty snack, try Ak-mak crackers (made of stone-ground sesame seeds), multigrain Wasa crackers, or low-fat rye mini toasts. Spread on some hummus or light cheese, or eat with a small slice of lean lunch meat.

Cheese Quesadilla

 Sprinkle some grated low-fat cheese, like Jarlesberg light, in between a couple of high-fiber tortillas, then crisp both sides on a cast-iron skillet or indoor grill. The healthiest cheeses have just 3 to 5 grams of fat per ounce.

Popcorn

 Choose 100-calorie packs of 94% fat-free microwave popcorn. Or air-pop your own. Skip the butter. Instead, raid your spice cabinet: Use lime powder for tang, cayenne pepper for heat, or a dash of cinnamon for sweetness.

Greek Yogurt 

It's high protein, low in sugar, and can really fill you up. 
For more flavor, mix in your own fruit, like sliced papaya. Or just try our favorite Chobani!!

Dark chocolate 

The darker the better. Chocolate made with at least 70% cacao contains less sugar and more antioxidants than its milky cousin.

Dried figs 

Three or four of the chewy, candylike fruit should do the trick. Still hungry? Pair them with a wedge of light cheese like Laughing Cow.

Harriet Tubman is perhaps the most well-known of all the Underground Railroad's "conductors." During a ten-year span she made 19 trips into the South and escorted over 300 slaves to freedom. And, as she once proudly pointed out to Frederick Douglass, in all of her journeys she  "never lost a single passenger."

Tubman was born a slave in Maryland's Dorchester County around 1820. At age five or six, she began to work as a house servant. Seven years later she was sent to work in the fields. While she was still in her early teens, she suffered an injury that would follow her for the rest of her life. Always ready to stand up for someone else, Tubman blocked a doorway to protect ano…
