To eat now? Jet lagged and hungry

What should I eat? I slept from 9:30ish till midnight and been reading (in the dark) and listening to podcasts since then. But I have an annoying niggling hunger now... contemplating noodles. Will I sleep better if I satisfy my hunger or should I battle through? What foods induce sleep? Noodles by any chance??

Carbs make you sleepy, so yes to noodles. Better to eat and then try to sleep.

Ponoka that's exactly what I needed to hear - thank you! Craving carbs.

Sesame demae ramen. I've cracked an egg in them too. Yesssssss.

Back in bed now. Feel much more relaxed and sleepy. And I let the dog out and set off the dishwasher. So that's all good. There's just that tingle of guilt that I had a meal in the middle of the night. Hm.

Better to eat when you are hungry than lay there unable to return to sleep as your stomach is complaining
Occasional is fine. It's not like you're sneaking down for cake every night at midnight
Just eat a little more in your supper/dinner next time

Thanks Tiani. Well it seems that it was the right decision- I fell asleep quickly after the noodles! Such a relief.
