Pre-Bedtime Dairy Substitute Snack?


Hey guys, I'm trying to find a suitable substitute for cottage cheese as a pre-bedtime snack. I'm trying to stay away from dairy in general since my acne flares up when I eat it (even when I do so infrequently).

Can you guys recommend any slow-digesting protein foods that would work well?


Dairy based foods too, or just like lactose? If just lactose, micellar casein shakes.
Otherwise just buy some vegan protein and add some flaxseed or something perhaps...


A couple of scoops of peanut butter aint bad either...


Scroll down on this website and look at the digestion times for certain foods. I'm sure you'll agree with me that beef and especially pork are you better choices.
