Hungry for a Late Night Snack?

I don't know about you guys but it seems like I consume more than half of my calories in the afternoon and evening! I'm ravenous after about 4pm and I'm always trying to think of low cal, low carb healthy snacks to eat that won't undo the hard work I put in daily with my workouts. 

The hard part is that I'm breastfeeding so I can't skimp too much on calories and I have to make sure what I eat is filling and nutritious. While serving my husband some ice cream and my daughter some popcorn & trail mix, the light bulb in my head lit up! I combined about 1/4 cup of popcorn, half a packet of Trader Joe's Omega Trail Mix and poured the blend into a cake cone! My daughter loves them and calls them her Animal Cones because she says they're the types of ice cream cones little animals would eat ;) 

So, next time you're looking for a healthy treat, give these 'Animal Cones' a shot! Less than 100 calories, about 5 grams a fat and 4 grams of protein with less than 15 carbs! An all around good & healthy treat!
