Many of us suffer from late night pangs of hunger. Reaching for the easy option of potato chips or chocolate can keep us up at night, and means we miss out on the opportunity to put some good nutrients into our bodies.

Here are 4 light late night snacks that will satisfy your cravings while giving you a boost of nutrients.

Avocado With Cottage Cheese

This satisfying and tasty snack is packed full of nutrients. Cottage cheese is rich in protein and contains the essential amino acid tryptophan that calms your nervous system, making it easier to relax and fall asleep. The avocado also has good quality fatty acids that lower cholesterol.

Today, I finally cleaned up the new home and the luggage was also sorted out and I started to set up my new home. Although I only live here for half a year, I still hope to feel "at home". After all, after working for a whole day, I really hope I can relax when I come home.  Moving is too tiring, so today I just made a simple breakfast for myself. Very fragrant sesame bread with avocado and cottage cheese, and a cup of freshly ground coffee, I feel like my new life is about to begin!  Found that the shell of avocado can be used as a small bowl ♥ ———————————————————— 讓你流口水了請按右上角收藏↗  初次來訪的朋友歡迎追蹤♥  如果覺得這篇/這帳號不錯 也歡迎分享到限時動態給你的朋友~💁  #芝麻麵包 #酪梨 #早餐日記 #早餐 #早午餐 #早安 #早餐吃什麼 #早餐很重要 #朝食 #朝時間 #飲食日記 #自己煮 #簡單料理 #懶人料理 #自炊生活 #餐桌日常 #sesambread #avocadocottagecheese #avocadolover #breakfasttime #breakfastideas #breakfast #onthetable #athome #simplebreakfast #simplefood #homemadefood
