We've all been told it's just not wise to eat before bed. Bummer! We can't stop the desire for something to eat! What do you eat just before bed (or maybe in the middle of the night??) Tell the truth!! LOL

Elijah, You put a lot of sensible thought into your snacks! Is this why you call yourself the Nature boy?? Sounds like you're all about "healthy!" Nothing wrong with that!! Here's to fresh fruit!
That sounds scrumptious, Elijah. I wish I could eat those. I have a variety of food allergies, mainly fruits and vegetables, and have to be very careful of them. I love bananas, but I've mostly given them up because of the reaction.
Thanks, fpherj48, I was named NatureBoy by others for living close to ecology, my teacher, is why.
MizBejabbers, Grow your own organic foods and most allergies will dissipate, allergies are not usually to food but chemicals and GMOs.
That's a fallacy perpetuated by health food nuts, Elijah. I wish it were true. Our family are genetically predisposed to allergies to dairy, glutens, chlorophyl, etc. Even organic fruits and veggies can make us very ill. Thank god for peanut butter.
MizB, You're an exception. As a walking nomad and eating fresh from its growing and drinking water I saw other animals drank from revealed fresh eating and groundwater drinking is healthiest. Look within, there's an alternative to be found.
Gosh Ronnie....That ape looks like a guy I dated in the '60's....but then, in the '60's I guess we all looked like that! Bananas & nuts are good...the evil stuff sounds like the food nightmares are made of!! LOL
Well, that just goes to show you that some guys have all the luck no matter what they look like. If he was a hippie he most likely didn't have a lot of money either, which makes his popularity even more impressive.
U must have grown up in the same era I did~being told ALL PLEASURE will cause guilt!Psst~we were lied to!There's a difference between hunger & appetite??Wow,I'm in big trouble! Don't follow Ronnie!Look at him! He's all hairy!!
MMMMM Cheese Doodles! OK! But soooo messy. Can't eat those in bed!! I love the skinny pretzel sticks! All that salt, Tim! We're bad. :)LOL
And, you have to wash your hands if cheese doodles is a favorite. I have friends in Europe that cheese doodles is a favorite go to snack.
Oh Greg...What self-control! Nothing after 8pm? But that's when all the fun happens! C'mon, be bad...live a little! Some night after 8, eat all the left-overs in the fridge!LOL. Ignore the rules!
Genna...Hmmm learning the hard way, huh? I hear you loud & clear. Get back to me immediately if you ever discover how we can learn the E-Z way! I've been waiting my whole life for that!! LOL...Melon sounds good to me!
Eating late at night is not a good idea...no sense trying to make it healthy! Just grab a snack in a box or bag and double the damage! Ho-Ho's, twinkies,Lucky Charms (YUK!)challenge yourself not to barf!!
Well...I was thinking more along the lines of cereal...But.... LOL. I don't eat Twinkies. They don't even rot away. Had a teacher leave one out, cut in half, on a shelf for over a year. Never even molded.
Quesedillas, delicious! When I worked at night, my midnight supper consisted of a small hamburger patty and some steamed mixed veggies, no other snack. I weighed about 105-110 then, but that was BT (before thyroid). I've gained a few lbs. since then.
Thyroid isn't an excuse I can use. Been tested for other reasons. I just love pasta & cheese too much. haha. Cutting back though due to health.
When my dang DOG wakes me up to go out at 3 a.m...it's HIS fault!! While he's outside, of course I'm gonna stick my head in the fridge. I grab whatever I grab, half asleep! Swiss cheese sound OK with me, GF!!

It's just not fair that some people can eat & eat anything they like and remain so slender! LOL One of my sons is that way & his metabolism sure wasn't inherited from me! I like rice crackers smothered in peanut butter!
fpherj, that's why doctors must seek a better understanding of what and how to treat individuals, a "silver bullet" approach doesn't work. If we were living ecologically we would not need medicine we would be led to what the body need instinctively.
Susan...Find me a person who can say, "NO," to chocolate....and I'll show you a very sad, sad person!! LOL Smiles are made of chocolate.. :)
Hi Ann, glad you liked my question.I searched as long as I could to see if it's ever been asked.Probably, but I didn't find it! What fun to have the grandkids sleep over! We get to be kids too!! :) Peace, Grandma!
I don't have a microwave either, but I can say that some leftovers taste better cold! LOL
Yes, like pizza and definitely, cold chicken, though I almost never buy pizza, even though I enjoy it now and then. BTW, glad to hear I'm not the only microwave-less person around. ;)
Oh, I totally agree that it is a good method for eating better.Although that isn't my reason for not having one either. Mmmmm....now I want a cold margherita pizza. I can taste it, but I don't have one. LOL
Hahaha! I hear you. Cold pizza is basically impossible to resist, no matter the time of day or night!
savy D. Not boring at all !!! I love your commentary, as it is always so uplifting.
sounds like there's a late night snack party going on here! I'm wondering if there's a person anywhere who did not survive through college on cold pizza!
wba...You certainly aren't doing any damage with all those healthy snacks! In fact, you're probably improving your overall health. Keep snacking!! & sleep well. :)
Thanks, though sometimes I eat sweets also.
Life is short! Have 2......they're small! :) We shouldn't be mean to ourselves. Sweets are a real treat!
MzB...There ya go! Another rational excuse to eat...medication with food! Thanks, I'll add that to my collection. So far I have over a dozen legitimate excuses to eat when we really shouldn't! LOL! Hey, we've earned the right....right?
Paula, at our ages, WTH? Why not!
My sentiments precisely!! It's time to go for the gusto....and the extra piece of chocolate cream pie!! :)
Hey Lela, thanks for the awesome info on a great cookie! I never met a cookie I didn't love. Something "healthy" that also tastes good! Now that's a premium find, my friend! Chomp away! :)....Mmmmmm Yum!
I general recommend all nuts be raw, cooked vegetation & nuts don't digest preventing the nutrients from being ingested. Anymore I suggest all our foods be "fresh picked" raw for better digesting, no dairy or flesh maybe eggs for ecological livin
I love nuts too, Shy, always have. Can't say I like them unsalted, even though I know they're healthier! Certain things I simply can't eat w/o salt...like eggs, for instance.My favorite nuts are walnuts, pecans & hazelnuts! Great snack.
Cereal seems to be the easiest and I know it's what a lot of people will make for a quick snack. It's a good choice too because "milk" is allegedly helpful to sleep. Thanks for your answer.
Arleen....Bless your heart! A hungry working Mom can eat anything she chooses! Working until Midnight to support your children entitles you to any delicious snack, including a big slice of chocolate cake or apple pie....with ice cream!!
aww! That is so sweet of you Paula. Don't worry, I'll surely treat my self with a slice of chocolate cake haha Have a great day!
Nonye....I think you're onto something! It is habitual to feel hunger when we open our eyes after sleeping a while....whether it's time to start our day or go back to sleep! Thanks. :)
Guru....I did reply to your comment, but it's up above. Oops! I can't even think straight when I'm hungry! LOL You'll see it. I have a habit of addressing the person I'm responding to.
