I have seen many discussions about breakfast foods (helpful) but I need some snack suggestions. Yes, I know that I should not eat a bedtime snack. However, I have a lifetime habit that I prefer not to kick.
My Endo does not want me to have a bedtime snack but, if I do, he wants it to be protein focused with a little carb. I thought cheese and crackers would be good but he says no to cheese (fat delays my high, he says).
I can be in normal range between Midnight and 3:30 am and then it starts rising (Dawn phenom). And I have increased my basal from 3 to 8 am but if I get it too high, then some night when I eat less for dinner I will crash in the middle of the night and I am alone so may not hear the cgm beep.
Any suggestions beyond peanut butter? I can do peanut butter and bread or crackers but not every night!! I don't cook so I can't really eat a hunk of leftover meat but could open a can of chicken meat I guess! I can't recall if I asked Endo about yogurt carton. Dannon is 16 gm carb and 5 gm pro. I have eaten that with nuts added but maybe I should not have added the nuts. (Sorry, but I hate the taste of Greek yogurt.)
Have a made the criteria too strict? I would like to ask, anyway. Just in case. Thanks.
