There’s some “rule” about not eating after 7p.
I call bullshit on that rule…
I don’t buy into that. You’re body uses sleep time to recover. What helps the body recover? Nourishment! Why would you go to bed hungry?
Plus, then you wake up hangry. I don’t need any added grump-factors early in the morning! Thus, I always have a midnight snack.
This just looks like an innocent chocolate Greek yogurt bowl… a little cereal, cocoa powder sauce, cacao nibs… cayenne… but that’s not strange
Then this happened:
Attack of the killer carrot!
All swirled together, each bite had creamy chocolate, a ribbon of rich cocoa sauce, sweet carrot, light crunches from the crispy cereal, and a satisfying bite from the cacao nibs. Sensory overload, in a strange but good way.
Obviously I hated it.
Chocolate Carrot Cake Bowl
- 3/4 C Greek yogurt
- 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ginger
- 1/8 tsp cayenne (optional)
- 1 carrot, grated
In a small bowl, combine all ingredients.
Top as desired. My toppings included: brown rice crispy cereal, cacao nibs, and a cocoa powder sauce (1T cocoa powder, 1T almond milk, 3-4 drops liquid Stevia).
Devour. Sleep like a baby.

This week has seemed longer than most… I’m really looking forward to the weekend and some Oscar-watching!
Do you believe in a late night snack?
Will you watch the Oscars? Is anyone making some Oscar-themed snacks? I’m putting my strange but good thinking cap on…
