Every night when you feel hungry, try to think about something that you should eat, not what you want to eat.
The best way to serve your food cravings at night is to set up a separate place in your kitchen or your refrigerator.
Multi-grain pretzels are really healthy and tasty to eat. Whether it is in stick form or twisted form, it is the best alternative for chips. You can try nutty crackers for a delightful snack – multigrain crackers, whole wheat or low fat mini toasts.
Greek yogurt is high in protein and low in fat, so add some of your favorite fruit and munch on. Whole wheat bread digests easily and making a sandwich from it will work well for the nights.

This page is home to the 10 best foods to eat in Maremma, Italy: wonderful local speciality dishes from an undiscovered and stunning rural land in Tuscany and Lazio where home cooked food still follows the seasons. Over dinner one night I asked my Italian partner what were his top ten favourite foods in Maremma in the hope that I could compile his and mine together into a top ten list, but it didn't quite work out that way! His choices, even under coercion, where so different from mine that we have a selection of both of our choices here and another ten on the next page! Here then is the first page of the 10 best foods to eat in this very special part of Italy.
Late October to early November sees the first press of olive oil in Maremma: the best olive oil in Italy! And for the simplest of bruschetta recipes, rub the toast with a clove of raw garlic, drizzle the olive oil generously over it, and then sprinkle salt and pepper to your taste.
This is one of my partners real favourites and I have to admit it took me along time to succumb to trying it many years ago as the idea of dipping things in oil just didn't go well eating healthily etc, even though I admit that I pile my sandwiches with mayonnaise. Pour a generous quantity of your extra virgin olive oil into a tiny ceramic bowl - they make them especially for the job here in Maremma - add "aceto balsamico" (balsamic vinegar) - although Fabio doesn't!
From the beginning of March - and into early April if you are lucky - you will find wild asparagus growing in the hedgerows along the country lanes and around the perimeter of the woodlands in Maremma. Not many of ours, however, make it all the way home as there are little (and large!) fingers that seem to eat as many as they put in the basket. If you happen to be in Maremma in March and fancy finding your own asparagus, just keep an eye out for parked cars along the lanes with no one in them: you will find the occupants not far away at a good picking spot. Maremma is Tuscany at the sea, with over 250 kilometres of coastline with the Tyrrhenian and Ligurian seas stretching into the Regions of Lazio and Roma. This dish is from Livorno, a coastal city and port to the north of Maremma and from which Maremma Livornese gets its name.
It is sometimes served with fresh Tuscan bread accompanied by raw cloves of garlic for you to rub onto the bread before eating. Serve it as an after dinner dish at home with friends and you will start something that everyone will thank you for over and over again. Cantuccini biscuits as they are also called are traditional Tuscan biscotti, packed full of almonds and twice cooked. This easy almond biscotti recipe is our Nonna's (Italian grandmothers) and makes the very best Cantucci. Difficult to find in restaurants and shops outside of the area of either of these two Tuscan hill towns, but you can sometimes find it at the handmade food stalls during wine and food festivals. I have no doubt that if you have visited or live in Maremma and are reading this then you will have some favourites of your own.
It’s a well-known fact that getting a good night’s rest is great for your health, productivity, mood and overall wellbeing. Exercise is a great remedy for a good night’s sleep, and the sleep you get following your exercise helps to rebuild your muscles, making you stronger and leaner. Milk contains an essential amino acid called tryptophan, which increases a natural sedative in your brain called serotonin, helping your body to get into sleep mode. Though alcohol can sometimes aid sleep, once the body metabolizes alcohol, it all goes downhill!
Another ingredient to avoid to help get a good night’s rest, caffeine should be avoided from the afternoon onwards if you are sensitive to its effects. About the Author: Zoe is an avid blogger and experienced freelance writer, and loves to share her knowledge through content on the internet.

Or perhaps you’ve had dinner and you just feel like munchng down on something because you’re not quite satisfied? Frittata slices – I love making fritattas and keeping slices of this is the fridge for an easy snack. Boiled egg – eat it as it is or cut it in half and top it with a chunk of chedder or some cottage cheese.
Crustless quiche – these also make a quick grabable snack and will load you up with some good quality protein to keep you satisfied overnight.
Guacamole – this is a family favorite snack and this homemade guacamole is one my daughter is now an expert at making. Coconut ice cream – whip up some coconut milk or cream with some fruit and a little stevia, stick it in the freezer and you have yourself a satisfying easy homemade icecream. My motto is: “YOUR HEALTH IS YOUR WEALTH” because there is nothing in this world that makes us more wealthy than having good health.

Quinoa is especially beneficial for sleep because it will help relax the muscles due to its high magnesium and protein content.
When this process occurs in the night, sleep can be disturbedBananasBananas contain the muscle relaxants magnesium and potassium and, like dairy products, they contain tryptophan which converts into serotonin and transmits the feeling of tiredness to the brain.
Much to the disappointment of those who enjoy a glass of wine in the evening, most of the melatonin is lost in the wine production process and alcohol can disrupt sleep so it is always best to eat a cup of raw grapes before bed.AlmondsAlmonds are rich in magnesium and tryptophan, helping to promote muscle relaxation and sleep. Dairy products are rich in the amino acid tryptophan which produces the sleep-inducing neurotransmitters, serotonin and melatonin.A These neurotransmitters relax your brain by slowing down nerve transmissions.
Though we like to munch on tasty unhealthy food sometimes, this will result in the accumulation of unwanted fat and an unhealthy body. As you may be really tired to prepare healthy snacks at night, you could prepare them before hand and store them. A handful of pretzels consist of 100 calories, and to boost up your metabolism you can drink them with yogurt. Whether you are watching a movie or reading a book, munching on popcorn is just simply great. It is sweet yet healthy and tasty too, so try to munch on it when you crave for food at night. You know that cereal is great for breakfast; however using low fat milk with your cereal at night will give you the feeling of being full.
If you would like to eat a dessert at night, just add a little whipped cream to your bowl of frozen blue berries.
Try new varieties of snacking on vegetables, by sprinkling lemon powder on your freshly baked chips.
The chewy texture of the bars will make you feel like you are eating a lot, when actually you aren’t.
So pay attention to the following tips, it is extremely important to keep these in your mind.

She has done her masters in English and has done her graduation from Banaras Hindu University.
That way I was able to include most of our favourites with those of other members of our family who joined in the debate!! And there is nothing more sublime than the simplest of ways of eating it, drizzled either on slices of fresh or toasted Tuscan bread (plural because one is just not enough!).
Our local olive oil has quite an intense and piquant flavour, so I don't add the salt and pepper.
The smaller ones I have to admit do taste wonderful raw and what better bliss is there than taking a long walk in the fresh spring air and teaching your young ones about foods by searching for them?
I just wish I could cook it like my Italian relatives and the chef at our local restaurant does! Here you will find wonderful fresh seafood dishes from the catch of the day and none is more traditional than Cacciucco Livornese: a mixed fish stew.
But I prefer Nonna's (our grandmother's) take on the recipe and the traditional Livornese way, where she toasts the bread, rubs it with the garlic cloves - just like making bruschetta - lines the bowls with the bread and piles on the stew. Delicious anytime of the with a cup of coffee or tea, but especially wonderful when eaten traditionally dipped in the fortified sweet Italian wine Vin Santo. The recipe is very local and reflects the ancient mixing of Maremma and Jewish cuisines when Jewish families settled in Maremma from Siena, Rome and Florence to flea Popal persecution in the mid-sixteenth century.
If you do see it, don't miss the opportunity: the pastry (actually an unleavened dough made from flour, sugar and white wine) forms a hard outer coating to the rich and very sweet filling made with honey, walnuts, orange rind and nutmeg.

Tell me what your 10 best foods to eat in Maremma are using the form below and I will add them to this guide as your recommendation. But if you’re struggling to fall asleep at night, or feeling even more exhausted when you wake, a change in your diet might help you combat those sleep woes. Try to eat little and often, and avoid eating late at night as this will only stimulate your body rather than calming it down ready for sleep. Use the phrase, ‘Eat breakfast like a King, lunch like a Prince and dinner like a pauper’, so you’re eating the right amounts at the right times of the day. Eating a banana with whole wheat toast and peanut butter before your workout will release energy slowly to keep you going throughout the exercise.
Honey is a simple, soothing sugar which also helps increase serotonin, so a concoction of both is the ideal bedtime drink. Avoiding booze is the best option, as it can worsen insomnia, and having an alcoholic nightcap will probably cause you to wake up during the night, and leave you feeling tired and dehydrated the next morning.
Keep any coffee drinks for the morning to get you started and perked up for the day, but gradually withdraw if you’re a big coffee drinker, as going cold turkey can have some unwelcome symptoms like overtiredness, irritability and headaches.
There is no more excuse for people who do not have a gym membership; all your workout can now be done at home, bootcamp style.
In fact, nutrition is a critical part of the fitness equation and you cannot attain your goal of losing weight and getting fit without proper nutrition.
The cottage cheese provides some great protein to keep you satisfied, top with a little vanilla and a few drops of stevia, and some berries of your choice to add some sweetness.
I truly believe that good food is the key to a happy, healthy life and I'm on a mission to inspire you to get back inside your kitchen, eat real food, and as a result, improve your health dramatically.
Sometimes I grab those no-no snacks and regret it later–especially those with too much salt or sugar. They also supply the body with protein, helping to stabilise blood sugar levels whilst sleeping. The calcium found in milk also helps the brain convert tryptophan into melatonin.Camomile TeaCamomile tea has been used as a solution for insomnia for centuries because it contains the flavonoid, apigenin which slows down the brain by binding to benzodiazepine receptors in the brain. Maybe staying up at night is your work demand, or you don’t want to miss your favorite television program or you’re just up to complete an important assignment. It may be satisfying for that moment but you will feel guilty for making that choice later on. This will make it much more convenient for you to choose the healthy snacks, as you won’t feel lazy and grab a packet of chips.
Bananas contain magnesium and potassium which will relax the muscles of your body and promote sleep. With this you will have the feel of munching on something but not gathering fat into your body. These are foods that will build up fat fast and you will definitely end up regretting these choices. This will make it hard for you to sleep at night and also make you feel lazy and low for the next morning. Read a book, take a warm bubble bath, go for a short walk on the terrace, listen to music or even play with your dog. Whatever you feel like eating, whether it is a dessert, cold snack, sandwich or chips, you have the perfect substitutes.
But, like wines, the aroma and flavour of the oil produced from each grove is influenced by its terroir - the soil, the geography, and geology - so you may find that a little pepper is just perfect for your olive oil. Then dip in your prepared raw vegetables and eat accompanied by some freshly sliced bread. A perfect authentic Italian dessert to end a meal with your friends and family that is so so simple to make at home.

You won't need much as it is very sweet: a perfect treat to sustain a walk through the Etruscan Vie Cave that join the two towns. If they are dishes at your favourite restaurant in Maremma, tell me which one and I'll include a mention so that visitors can seek them out and try them for themselves.
After all the years I have lived here it never ceases to surprise me or bring a smile to my face. Before changing your diet completely, ensure you’re getting 7-9 hours of sleep at night on a comfy mattress. Eat something nutritious every three to four hours helps to keep you going during the day with the right balance of hormones, and also helps you fall asleep at night. Also, think about when you want to exercise, and remember that exercising in the morning helps to relieve tension, improve your mood and help you fall asleep much faster at night. I often use frozen berries and just defrost them, this means you can always have them on hand if you do get the sweet munchies. In the UK these tablets are harder to come by so the news that cherries are a natural and healthy alternative to sleep supplements is great.A Try eating a cup of cherries before bed or alternatively try drinking a glass of cherry juice. If this occurs in the night, sleep can be disturbed so try adding honey to a cup of boiling water for a soothing bedtime drink. The glycine found in camomile tea also helps cure anxiety by relaxing the nerves and muscles.A It is best to drink three to four cups of camomile tea if you are trying to get to sleep or recovering from jet lag. Well-sprung mattresses that aren’t too firm or soft are essential for a good night’s sleep. Exercising late at night can often cause the opposite desired effect, and keep you up at night. If you choose to follow the Kodjoworkout Program without consulting your physician, you are doing so at your own risk. So here you'll find easy and practical info to help you eat well, and feel your best everyday. Even if your daily routine is such that you are awake at night and asleep during the day, the human’s body was just created in such a way. Researchers at Northumbria University found that Montmorency cherry juice, a sour variety of cherry, can help you sleep nearly 40 minutes longer than usual. So here are a few protein-rich healthy snacks that you can choose to munch on for the night.
Since dehydration is one of the causes for food cravings at night, drink water if you feel hungry. Also, think about how much exercise you’re getting, and aim for 20 minute sessions three times a week on average. So, you should not eat at night, but if you have to, the best thing for you to do is to avoid certain kinds of food.
Here are some of the worst possible foods that you can eat late at night.Worst Foods To Eat At NightDark ChocolateThe dark chocolates are the worst foods to eat late in the night, as they have caffeine that can create disturbances in your nervous system. Nuts, peanuts, peanut butter and seeds (sunflower, sesame, pumpkin) a high amount of magnesium are rich in magnesium that helps prevent muscle cramps and reduces insomnia. But that will change and we are making plans to see Italy again next year and Maremma is on the top of our to do list.
You can face a terrible amount of problems while sleeping when you retire to your bed at night.AlcoholHaving an alcoholic beverage before bed might make you feel drowsy and reduces the time it takes to fall asleep, however, having alcohol before bed does not produce revitalizing sleep. You may be doing everything right according to you, but the late night munching is the major mistake.
A few drinks before bed will typically reduce REM (rapid eye movement) sleep which influences your memory and serves restorative functions.
Craving for food at night is completely normal, especially when you begin an exercise regime. With their high calcium content, they are the best food that you should eat before sleep.2. Boxed CerealsThough the boxed cereals appear attractive, they often have plenty of sugar content.
FruitBananas, cherries, kiwi, berries and whole grains (oats, barley) is food with high amount of B6.
Healthy snacks should be your first preference, even if you select the best work out plan and forget to eat healthy food; your hard work is in vain, so eat right!
Through helping to regulate the Circadian rhythm, melatonin plays an important part in sleep.
Instead, you can try plain popcorn as it can be consumed even late into the night.CoffeeCaffeine can keep you tossing and turning in your bed for hours due to its temporary stimulating effect. B vitamins, following on from the importance of tryptophan, have a big role play because they are both involved in the processes in our body. In bananas we may find a high amount of that amino acids, so that makes the banana the ideal night food.3. Lack of quality sleep at night can hinder cognitive functions and contribute to daytime tiredness.
If you are thinking about switching to decaffeinated coffee, be aware that most decaf coffees are not completely caffeine-free. Cottage cheese is ideal before bed because it contains a large amount of casein protein, that is slowly released into the body. Through the night that process ensures a steady supply of amino acids and stimulates the glucagon releasing.
For example, you can enjoy a soothing cup of chamomile tea, which will also aid digestion and promote sleep.Ice CreamIce-creams have stuffed sugar and other contents that are difficult to digest at night. Ice creams belong to the category of worst foods that one could eat late in the night.Fruity YogurtPlain yogurt is fine, but fruity yogurt contains harmful contents in the form of sugar, preservatives, and many more things that usually do not suit the body conditions. Glucagon assists the body with breaking fat and activate stored carbs that are used for energy.
Fruity yogurt is a food that you should definitely avoid late at night.Spicy FoodDigestion slows down during sleep. Turkey is great pre-bed meal choices because it has a very low insulin release and it is slowly digested.
And because it takes extra effort for the body to digest spicy food, it will have a harder time doing so during sleep.
In turkey we can find amino acid tryptophan, which is responsible to increase levels serotonin levels.5.
Green vegetablesAnother vitamin responsible for proper sleep – is B6 which is mainly present in vegetable products. Eating spicy food hours before bedtime will disturb the continuity of your sleep and cause you to wake up several times during the night. As a result, you will have poor quality sleep that leaves you tired even if you did manage to get some.Foods That Disrupt SleepSodaSoda of all kinds is acidic by nature.
Proven by the various studies, for those who suffer from insomnia, magnesium made the quality of their sleeping time much better. Soda is also one of the worst foods to eat late in the night.Processed CheeseNatural cheese is far better than processed cheese as the fatty content is high in the processed cheese. Processed cheese is not one of the foods you should be eating late in the night.Fast foods like PizzaPizza and Cheese burger are tasty o the tongue, but they can be worst for the stomach, especially if thy are consumed at night.
