Despite health experts recommending against it, many of us have been guilty of hijacking the fridge late at night to satiate unwanted hunger pangs with that leftover pie or cake. That is mostly because the craving is so high that we are forced to momentarily ignore the healthy eating agenda, and go on to please ourselves with fancy snacks.

But, why not munch on tempting, tasty, and healthier snacks that you won’t mind satisfying your early AM hunger pangs with!

Here’s a list of healthy pleasers for your midnight cravings, suggested by Garima Gupta, founder, Delicc.

These bite-sized crunchy delights are not only tasty, but also full of protein, potassium, manganese, and phosphorus.

Berries
