It is a custom by many to stay up all night learning Torah on the first night of Shavuot. It is also a custom to eat dairy which means many people make carb heavy dinners of pastas, cheeses, and blintzes. I don't want to change anyone's traditions, so here are some tips and snack ideas to get your through the night no matter what you serve for dinner.
Keep snacks that are high in protein by your side and nibble throughout the night.
These cookies are made with garbanzo beans for a nice healthy twist with an added boost of protein.
Flavorful nut and fruit mix will provide the perfect mix of protein and carbs and flavor, plus it is easy to nibble through the night.
THE RIGHT KIND OF SUGAR
Candy and coffee with sugar are often on the menu for an all nighter, but the pure processed sugars will give you short bursts of energy that can only end in a crash. Better to stick to natural sugars from fruits and homemade treats.
Oats, nuts and fruits are the perfect combo for an all nighter, cut it up into small pieces so you can enJOY it all night.
If you don't like oats or just want a change, popcorn granola bars are all the rage.
Keep yourself hydrated with lots of water or even better add flavorings like lemon, mint, or ginger.
