Apparently, some snacks can improve your sleep quality.
Certain foods and beverages can affect your sleep. It's commonly said that you should avoid coffee or drinks that contain caffeine during or after your dinner. On the same hand, you shouldn’t eat food high in saturated fat and sugar before going to bed.
If you're willing to eat something that fills you up and helps you doze off, here you have some simple and delicious options. Keep in mind to add them to your supermarket's list so you can always have them handy!
Cherries are a natural food source of melatonin, which is a chemical that helps control your body’s internal clock and sleep patterns. You can eat fresh or dried cherries, or just drink some cherry juice before going to bed.
Apples and peanut butter are a good combo with protein, fiber, and complex carbs. Peanuts are rich in omega, which help your heart health and boost serotonin levels as well.
Another option is to eat a banana before going to bed. This fruit is full of satisfying fiber, sleep-inducing tryptophan, and natural muscle relaxants like magnesium and potassium. You can also have a banana and milk smoothie. For a change, you can replace banana with avocado, which contains omega and magnesium as well.
Finally, you can take a bunch of almonds, which are a great source of protein and magnesium. Almonds will help your muscles to relax. You can choose a cup of valerian or chamomile tea to go with your dinner, as it's been proven that they’re medicinal plants with soporific effects.
