I always get really hungry right before I goto bed. I try to avoid high carbs before going to bed. So does anybody know any foods that would be good to eat before going to bed? I sometimes eat cottage cheese, but it isn't my favorite food in the world, and I get tired of drinking shakes before bed, because they usually don't 'fill me up'. So if anybody has any good food they could tell me I could pick up at the store, that would be prepared already, or only take a minute or two to fix, that would be great.
Thanks in advance

Good healthly and low carb foods/snacks for late night, right before bed...?

Try putting some cinnamon on your cottage cheese, or splenda...or both! Makes it taste better. Cottage cheese and broccoli are my pre-bed "snacks." May not sound appetizing, but you wake up ready to hit the gym hard.Admin at True Sport Supplements Inc.

Started with the cottage cheese before bed about 2 weeks ago. Eating around 225g and tried mixing it with a few different ingredients;
- light strawberry jam and splenda
- chocolate whey powder
- peanut butter
- marmalade and splenda
- cinnamon and splenda
- chopped almonds and raisins
- a fibrous cereal and splenda (this option only if I feel my glycogen levels are low and need to carb up/refuel a bit)
All taste good, don't know what I would do without good old CC!!!

cc + 1 tbsp of any flavour pudding mix. they all taste good and you have lots of choices
cc + melted pb
cc + melted pb + fibre 1 cereal on top. delicious and crunchy, though it's not low carb (mostly fibre)
pb and cinnamon taste great together too imohttp://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=5975691 <my new superfly wellness journal

sometimes if i am really hungry i make a "dip" with a few tbs lowfat sour cream, mixed with skim milk until you get the right consistency. i add garlic salt and season salt.
then, i slice up some cucumbers and celery and enjoy. the whole thing has about 150 calories, and the veggies make it pretty filling.
