Greek yogurt and granola is my favorite meal to eat before bedtime for several reasons. Greek yogurt is packed with slow-digesting casein protein, which is perfect right before sleep since you won't be able to eat for at least 6-8 hours—if you're resting like you should! Second, Greek yogurt is loaded with healthy bacteria known as probiotics, which perform a host of positive functions for your intestinal health and aid in digestion. If those reasons aren't enough, Greek yogurt also is a great substitute for sweet cravings at night. You can sweeten Greek yogurt with Stevia, Splenda, or a natural sweetener, or you can just enjoy its thick, creamy texture on its own.
