Staying up late is the norm for a lot of people. You may want to finish some office work, read a book, and watch a movie or even have a night talk with a friend. However, when you stay up late you are likely to experience hunger pains. If you are following a healthy vegan diet plan it is important that you eat only healthy snacks to get rid of the hunger pains. Post dinner cravings are due to boredom, lack of proteins, dehydration or low sugar levels. Late night snacks should not be high in fats neither should they be heavy meals. There are many vegan snacks to choose from that can keep you healthy. You can try the following vegan bites to satisfy your midnight cravings:
Vegetables:
To enjoy a snack rich in proteins and fibers you can dip veggies in vegan yogurts. Use broccoli, snap peas, bell pepper or cauliflower as healthy midnight snacks. Carrots can also make a great snack when blended with fat free yogurt.
Oatmeal:

Oatmeal can be taken with bananas or cherries to keep your body satisfied.
Frozen fruits:
These are the most readily available snacks. Frozen fruits are ideal for midnight cravings. Apples and bananas are satisfying and are low in calories .Other fruits like oranges, berries, peaches and kiwis can also be eaten as snacks at night.

Tahini:
It is made from sesame seeds and mixed with a little amount of oil to make it right. This delicious spread can be spread over a slice of vegan bread and used as a late night snack.
