Snacks for mom's evening


The whole day of a young mother may pass like tens of minutes, from one duty to another. By completely skipping time to eat unhealthy treats, enjoying the consistency of your favorite dessert. However, when the sun goes down and the house finally becomes quiet, often the first steps young parents are directed towards the fridge ... What to choose to eat healthy in the evening and not provide unnecessarily empty calories?

Dried fruit / nuts / grains

Some like them, others hate them. Anyway, it's worth checking if we like this snack, especially since the selection is very wide. For the evening, ideal: 3-4 dried apricots, 5 pieces of walnuts, a handful of raisins or sunflower seeds. We can also reach for pumpkin seeds, almonds. All these suggestions are healthy snacks, however, provided that you do not overdo it with their quantity.

Other advantages? The mass of valuable vitamins and nutrients, the possibility of obtaining additional energy for the evening after an exhausting day, seizing the hand, as well as the prospect of maintaining a slim figure.

Cereal flakes without milk

You don't have to combine them with milk, all you have to do is reach for a handful in the evening to have something to crunch, and at the same time get a low-calorie snack (a handful has less than 100 calories). In addition, in this way you will provide many vitamins and valuable nutrients and of course fiber.

Crisp evening snacks

Many people are enthusiastic about the possibility of eating sticks or chips also because of their characteristic crunching noises. Fortunately, with a little desire you can replace them. An interesting suggestion are rice rings with various additions, for example, smeared with homemade jam, or carrot - a vitamin bomb that allows you to satisfy a small hunger, and also allows you to clean your teeth through the crunching process itself.
Although many people choose fresh fruit for the evening, it is best not to do so according to the latest recommendations because of the large amounts of carbohydrates that are not recommended just before bedtime.

Vegetables and yogurt dip

Vegetables served with a yogurt dip are a healthy proposition for the whole family. We can prepare a snack from any vegetables: carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, tomato, squash. Preparing a dip is also child's play: we will need ½ cup of plain yogurt, chives or parsley. Wash and peel the vegetables and cut them into smaller pieces. We put on a plate. Next to it we put the previously prepared dip from natural yogurt, parsley or chives and a crushed garlic clove.

Healthy fries

Instead of generously salted French fries, which you often feel like, try a proven recipe for celery, squash or zucchini from the oven. After washing the vegetables, peeling and chopping them and adding a tablespoon of olive oil and your favorite spices, all you have to do is put the vegetables on a baking tray and bake for about a quarter.
We serve a snack with a cream-herb-garlic dip or ketchup.

Cottage cheese with radish or chives

We crush cottage cheese with a fork. Finely chop the chives or dill, add to the cheese. Wash, dry and grate radishes on a thick grater, adding to cottage cheese. Season with herb pepper and salt as desired. We add mayonnaise and natural yogurt, combine everything together and leave for about half an hour to eat. Then we taste and season if necessary.

Vegetable salad

Or maybe the pleasure of preparing a meal? Without looking at your toddler, in silence or with your favorite music?
For the evening, a vegetable salad with roasted turkey will work. We will need: crisp lettuce, cucumber, tomato, radish and turkey roasted in your favorite spices. Pour everything over with homemade vinaigrette sauce (all you need is to combine olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and herbs). Such a salad can be a snack when we feel hungry in the evening or it can be simply replaced by dinner.

Sweet

When we have to eat something sweet in the evening, it is worth it to make diet cookies. We will need: 4 tablespoons of oat bran, 2 tablespoons of wheat bran, two eggs, one tablespoon of sugar, a little spice or vanilla aroma.
Beat eggs with sugar, add bran, spice (aroma) and mixed. We put out on a baking tray lined with baking paper, after about 15 minutes cutting out smaller shapes with a glass. Put in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes in the oven preheated to 135 degrees.

Bon Appetit!
