Hey 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.

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.

yogurt & yes i bolus for it

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.

My favorite low-carb snacks:

  • Pepperoni & Cheese
  • Parmesan Chips (take shredded parmesan and make little piles on a cookie sheet and throw them in the oven for ten minutes)
  • Pickles
  • Can of Tuna fish
  • Bag of potato chips (jkjk...just put that one in to see if you were reading)
