Midnight Hunger

"Rice is great if you're really hungry and want to eat two thousand of something".But eating rice for Midnight hunger?? No!

People say Sometimes late night food carving simply means you need to go to sleep earlier, But since that is difficult these days owing to the work schedule and the ‘Me time’ that we require after office and the home chores, we tend to be awake till midnight and that is when the unmistakable rumble of a hungry stomach fills the room

Sometimes when I am really hungry and I open the fridge, all I find is Dosa batter, tomato, and cold water!.

Good old Maggie is also banned! What will people do now when they are hungry and the time is 1 Am?

These are some of the best late night snacks that are low in carbs and also fulfill the hunger:

1.Stove top- pop corn: takes only 2 mins to make and with a dash of chilly pepper toppings ,dried spices or Parmesan cheese toppings adds lots of flavor.

2.Dry fruits -  dates, almonds, peanuts, cashews. Who does not love munching these and reading a good book.

3.Dark chocolates-  This dark beauty source of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, such as potassium, copper. Uff who cares!, its yummy when eaten slowly and in small quantities

4.Fruits- Banana to the rescue

5.Oreo Milk shake

6.Cracker salad

last but not the least,
 Dedicate a small area in your refrigerator to late night snacks. That way, when hunger strikes you will be prepared !

Saint Basil's Cathedral- Sketch

"As part of the program of state atheism, the church was confiscated from the Russian Orthodox community as part of the Soviet Union's anti-theist campaigns and has operated as a division of the State Historical Museum since 1928. It was completely and forcefully secularized in 1929 and remains a federal property of the Russian Federation. The church has been part of the Moscow Kremlin and Red Square UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1990. It is often mislabeled as the Kremlin owing to its location on Red Square in immediate proximity of the Kremlin." -wiki

Phoenix-Regenerated and reborn

"A phoenix or phenix (Greek: φοῖνιξ phoinix) is a long-lived bird that is cyclically regenerated or reborn. Associated with the sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor
The phoenix is sometimes pictured in ancient and medieval literature and medieval art as endowed with a nimbus, which emphasizes the bird's connection with the sun"
