If it were me I'd be looking for warm milk, or maybe milk chocolate but considering that chocolate is to some or during some times a stimulant.

I have a lot of insomnia problems. I'd go with the warm milk. Maybe tea with honey but tea can stimulate too, maybe tea in the early evening, but only warm milk late at night.

I'm awake (hunger pains woke me). I'm waiting for the last bit of Pozole to heat up in the microwave. I'm like Pavlov's dog--I start drooling when I hear the sound of the microwave...

I did go out and check on them while I waited...no, not craving chicken, just needed a chicken fix (that being, to see the chickens). They were all roosting and wondered "what the heck is she doing here at this hour? We were sleeping...did she bring food...what's this...mashed pears...ummm...."

All I have to do is think of the consequences of how I will feel. And believe me I do feel it.

When I first became a diabetic, I tried every sugar substitute on the market. They all left a nasty metal taste in my mouth. So I made a determination. I would gladly give up any and all sugar items so that I could have sugar in my coffee. As the baker for the family, I never even lick my fingers, beaters, bowl, or any other item that might have goodies on it. So often someone will say to me, "My uncle is diabetic and he cheats every so often. He doesn't have any bad effects." Well, I am not their uncle, aunt or any other relative to them. I made my choice and live with it. I do not have dessert today, because tomorrow I know I will want that small sliver of pie, half of a candy bar, or whatever is at hand. That doesn't mean that this will work for others. Most likely it will not. But my coffee is my main intake of liquid. I have a cup beside me 24/7. Even when I lay down to sleep.

If you measure out just one packet of sugar into a teaspoon that you would normally use, you will notice that it is a scant spoonful. (if you are lucky) Just enough for me to make me happy.
