For me the most difficult time to deal with hunger pangs is midnight. I generally sleep late and recently I am trying to have early light dinner. Result, I start feeling super hungry by 11 which forces me to reach to the most easiest and unhealthy options: chips or Maggie.  I swear I can pass my complete day eating clean but having a clean dinner and healthy snack has always been a challenge for me.

After struggle with my eating habits I found some snacks which are healthy, easy to have and tastes good. So today I wanted to share them with you, so that you choose best for yourself.

Water

Often thirst is misinterpreted as hunger. So first of all gobble down a glass of water before you much onto something else and wait for some time. If you still feel hungry opt for some other healthy option from below list.

Fruits

Easiest and nutritious option for anytime snacking. When having a fruit do not think about calorie count or fat, since a fruit has healthy calories which are vital for body, so you can even have a banana. I generally fill a box with pomegranate seeds in morning and have it whenever hungry.

Curd

Always have curd in fridge. It is the most healthy and easy on stomach snack. Have a bowl of curd and you are done. It’s filling and yummy. To make it heavier or to add flavour to plain curd, add some fruits. Strawberry and Kiwi are my favourite companions with curd.

Popcorn

Butter free pop corns are also a great choice. If craving for something salty add little amount of salt else skip it since salt is the reason for bloating, so try and reduce the intake of salt as much as possible.
