a piece of cold fried chicken, a bowlful of chili, a leftover omelet, a cookie and warm milk, an old burrito. if you get up in the middle of the night, do you eat and what is it that you crave? cheese pizza with onions? who knows?

The midnight snack is a lost art!
Usually improvised from contents of fridge, leftovers, etc.

@nimis: I KNOW! whatever happened to it?

I think now that the whole “don’t eat after 7” rule is seen on every nutrition/diet book, blog, or plan late night snacking has decreased.

The last time I ate in the middle of the night….was when I was pregnant. WOW! That middle of the night low blood sugar/hunger was powerful.

The cure? A tall glass of OJ…or a nice warm bowl of maple and brown sugar flavored oatmeal.

It is 12:30ish here, and I’m getting ready to eat a Mr. Goodbar. Yum.

Mmmm…and the midnight drink!
Socks shuffling on the kitchen floor.
And something about how quiet the house is
makes the clink of ice in glass that much greater.

Loves it.

Well the first thing the dietitian told me as a diabetic that I HAVE TO! eat a bedtime snack. That is what keeps your blood sugar from fluctuating and causing your body to gain weight. If your blood sugar is at a steady number your body is less likely to think your starving and not create fat the next time you eat. So I always eat a midnight snack so to speak.

Since my daughter left for college, I rarely grocery shop.

My last midnight raid consisted of me sticking a wet finger in raw jello—just for a little something sweet. how freaking sad is that?

I miss the midnight snack I do it as often as possable but it still feels distant

jerrytown's avatar

I rarely miss out on the midnight snack attack, and probably a 2am snack after that. midnight snack is back ladies and gentlemen, bring it back!!

@uberbatman I have been pounding down ben and jerrys “everything but the” and “new yourk super fudge chunk” about a pint a day for a minute now!

Since week 20 or so of my pregnancy, I re-discovered midnight stacking. I’m now in my third trimester. There’s the midnight full meal and the 3AM snack. If I’m awake, I’m hungry.

I am always sound asleep at midnight!


Sometimes my family and I would make a little meal in the middle of the night (2 am to 4 am.) and have fun eating together. It’s not like the main course we had at 7 pm., but a little fare like scrambled egg sandwiches or a bowl of Ramen noodles. My children are only 7 and 5, so they think eating in the middle of the night while they should be in bed asleep is exciting and fun. We only do this on weekends, and during the summer when the kids are out of school.

my midnight weakness is chex mix, original or cheddar, and peanuts :) I like savory snacks the best. Being type 1 diabetic is a great excuse to snack and snack often, haha.
