Hey guys...so I was sitting at home last night, watching a little tv and getting a little hungry....and I found myself going through a frustration that I face all the time which is "what to have for bedtime snack?" This is a situation that I struggle with constantly :) I am always at a loss for finding something to eat that is going to be nice to me through the night! SO I thought I'd throw the question out there...What is everyones favorite bedtime snack? Oh and do you normaly bolus for it?

I have celery w/ranch dressing - it's not my favorite but my morning BS are good. And yes I always bolus for my snacks.

My nighttime snack is half of an apple.

A spoonful of yummy chunky PB - keeps me pretty level all night. No bolus for it.

String cheese or almonds. Also discovered cream cheese with some splenda and a little baking cocoa is quite tasty. Only about 4g carb for 1.5 oz. No bolus for any of those.

So I'm noticing that most are eating mainly protiens at night...I am such a carb addict! :)

Some sort of protein, it varies. Not carbs. And definitely a "snack" -- SMALL portion. No bolus, I normally exercise in the evening.

This is all very helpful!

A piece of toast with almond butter and sf jelly it's about 14 grams of carbs but I don't bolus for it and usually my morning numbers are pretty decent especially if I have gone for a swim at night. For me a snack is protection against going low and most days it works. If I am running a bit high I either skip the snack completely or I have toast with marmite instead.
