Favorite Light Nighttime Snacks?

Every night for about three years, we indulged in the same late night snack: stovetop popcorn. What a tasty, cheap, and relatively healthful snack, right? Well . . . it turns out we were each consuming about 250 calories of popcorn every day!

Sure, we could lighten it up by switching to air-popped corn or we could simply eat less popcorn, but we didn’t want to do that. Instead, we aimed to diversify our nighttime snacking options. We now eat popcorn just a couple nights a week. Other nights feature sliced apples or some light dessert such as pudding (surprisingly much lighter than our popcorn!). But we could use more nighttime snack ideas. What are yours? (And please don’t extoll the virtues of not snacking. We’re unwilling to part ways with this evening ritual!)
