I usually eat a ton of yogurt with some cinnamon and stevia extract and end up feeling fine. However when I end up eating popcorn late at night (popped in coconut oil, doused in melted butter) I always end up feeling really shitty in the morning. (more)

Greens make a great snack: watercress, baby spinach, baby kale, baby arugula with a splash of apple cider vinegar.

Why do you snack? What need does snacking fulfill for you? Are you actually hungry when you snack? If you're hungry, why not eat an actual meal, or just be hungry till your next planned mealtime?
