A high protein snack makes a great bedtime choice since it keeps your metabolism burning as you sleep.
Furthermore, when your body is nutrient-depleted (like at the end of the day) it sends out signals to eat, often leading many to reach for that bag of potato chips. Almonds are so nutrient rich that when consumed they stop these signals thus preventing overeating, something that if done at bedtime severely impacts weight loss. Satisfy yourself properly before bed with this hearty oatmeal!
Ingredients (makes about 1-2 servings)
½ cup of instant plain rolled oats
½ Organic New Zealand iso-whey or plant based protein powder; your choice of flavor
10 natural almonds
1. Prepare the oats according to package instructions.
2. Stir in the protein powder and almonds.
3. Enjoy with 1 cup of chamomile, valerian root, or milk thistle tea (all of which promote sleep.)
