  • Bedtime Snack

    I've been primal for about 4 months now (every since i returned from deployment). I am about 97/3 primal to not. I lift weights and sprint, and do so with 0 starches other than sweet potatoes every week or so. The only time I feel reallyyy hungry is about 8pm. I have dinner around 5-6pm.

    So what I usually do is mix a cup of FAGE Greek yogurt (plain) with 1 scoop of vanilla whey, cinnamon, and a scoop of almond butter. This is my go-to bedtime snack. I have it about evry 3 days the other days I just blend whey with frozen berries and ice so it has a creamy consistency like yogurt without the dairy.

    The only problem with the FAGE is I cannot find full fat greek organic yogurt ANYWHERE. So I go with 2% FAGE.

    What are your go-to bedtime snacks and why???

    Yup. HyVee used to carry full fat FAGE. Heard a rumor you can request such things from groceries but I've never done it myself.

    I've weaned myself off bedtime snacks... Though I've been known to eat a big supper. Used to do chocolate starting at about 10. Now I grab myself a big bottle of Perrier and sit it next to me all night.

      During the warmer months, I was eating berries and almond milk blended with ice almost every night before bed. Now, depending on my mood, it's either nothing (I think because supper is larger than in summer), or two fried eggs, or 3 oz of a clear distilled spirit.

      Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

          Yeah the only reason I have to include this meal is because of the high volume of weightlifting/sprinting and the low amount of calories throughout the day. Also great to ignite protein synthesis throughout the night. Also throw in a nice Cabernet or Pinot a few times a week

            I think you're good with the bedtime snack, especially since it's casein-heavy protein. Great for building muscle. I think I actually read a post somewhere--maybe Leangains--about the muscle-building benefits of having casein, like cottage cheese or something, right before bed.

                I like blending cottage cheese with dark chocolate and frozen berries. Kinda like ice cream.

                  We've just discovered a great bedtime snack- streaky bacon wrapped around a soft unsulfared dried apricot. So good! We were going to use dates but ran out, so the apricot was a good suprise. Quick to do and just enough .

                      I find if I don't have a snack with some carbs I can't sleep, it's pretty essential to my sleep routine. I'm dairy free and a standard go to snack is some warmed pumpkin with some ginger and an egg white cooked into it....and a cup of tea

                        Usually it's a glass of red wine and a square of 85% dark chocolate. Sometimes I'll snatch a piece of whatever grilled meat my husband has made for his late supper and the smell drives me nuts until I have some of it. He doesn't usually eat until around 9:30pm (farmers hours), uses the grill year-round.

                          I like chocolates because they are sweet but I never eat them on daily because they increase the cholesterol levels. But the dark chocolate is the good in this case because they don't disturb the cholesterol level. Anyhow good thread. I like it.
