One of the main benefits of popcorn is the visuals! You’re consuming less while your brain sees more. Think of comparing a whole bag of popcorn to a whole bag of chips.

Low in calories and maxed out hydration factor. Putting a smidgen of salt onto some watermelon will bring out the sweetness of the fruit as well. It’s the perfect snack for hot summer nights.
Roasted carrots and sunflower seed butter
A strange combination will bring you protein and carbs in a light and healthy way. It’s not too filling (an important factor before bed) and you can always add some chocolate to the mix to sweeten the taste.

Raw unsalted pumpkin seeds
You know how eating turkey at Thanksgiving makes you tired? I’m sure you’re aware of the reason it does that: tryptophan.
