But skip the heavy-loaded pizza and eat the smart stuff, like protein rich sweets and tasty superfoods (with the good kind of fat!). These sweet and savory snack ideas are sure to beat late night hunger and keep you full until brekkie.

It’s widely known that kale’s a superfood. Paired with the right combination of fruit, almond milk, and veggies, a cup of green smoothie will soothe you to sleep better than any old glass of milk.
Hummus & Avocado Slices
Avocado contains high amounts of monounsaturated fat, which both keep you full and can help to burn the flab around your midsection. Combine with healthy, tasty hummus and your choice of veggies or pretzels and you’ll have savory dreams.
