It's late and I'm hungry! As most of you realize, I write the Koffee Klatch just before I head for bed here on the West Coast. That way it's here when people log on to the forum the next day. But by this late at night I get the munchies or like tonight, my tummy is rumbling!!!
Do you have a snack at bedtime? What do you have? What's your favorite? What would you LOVE to have?...lol Are you a midnight eater...I mean do you wake up and eat during the night? OK, true confessions time...or not.
I a cereal and milk girl. For some reason some icy cold milk and cereal soothes my tummy and puts me to sleep. There are cereals I love but rarely buy because I love them...make sense? Like Sugar Pops...OK, they don't call them that any more...what is it, Corn Pops. But for most of the years they've been selling them they were called Sugar Corn Pops. OK, I'm on a cul-de-sac...lol I buy plain cereals like Special K (with red berries is great), Quaker Oat squares, Cheerios, and any of the regular Chex cereals.
Now, if I was going to be naughty I'd be having a nice slice of cheesecake or yellow cake with chocolate frosting. How about
a bowl of vanilla bean ice cream with thick fudge sauce. But I doubt I have enough insulin to get through something like that, plus I'd be twice the size I am. I never, ever used to eat at night. But since my fibromyalgia kicked in I'm awake sometimes during the night for an hour or two. At those times I get the urge to eat. It depends on my blood sugar reading whether I have a small snack or not.
What do you like for a bedtime snack, if any?
I'm off to have my cereal for the evening, and a chaser of insulin...
