These are 2 options I will certainly always have in the fridge.
Does anyone have any tips for when the midnight munchies occurs? Something relatively healthy and requires no or very little cooking?
If you have any dips (homemade ones can be healthy), then use them with crudités (pieces of raw vegi, e.g., celery, carrot sticks, radishes, cauliflower or broccoli florets, slices or sticks of cucumber etc. Whatever you happen to like).

I don't need Midnight Munchies very often since I fall asleep easily and sleep like a log once I do.

But one of those sodium laden cups of soup you just add boiling water to is quick and easy.

Chips and Hot Sauce are another option.

Hey at that time of night healthy takes a back seat.

Since we don't have slotted times for our meals, and usually having two "formal" meals and bits and bites when hungry, I had the same thought about a snack thread ~ Hence What have you had for a snack lately? No need to check a watch or clock - just snack!

Since we tend to eat supper about 9 or 10 PM (I swear we'll never become "morning people" again after Himself worked 4:00 PM to Midnight shift for years...) I might have a few crackers with cheese or a slice of toast with my nightly glass of wine as I wind down for the day. Almost always a glass of wine before bed.
