Foodie Friday: Choosing The Right Bedtime Snack
The National Sleep Foundation suggests these healthy snacks:
Whole-grain crakcers and peanut butter, which contain complex carbohydrates and tryptophan, a sleep-promoting amino acid.
Warm milk, which contains calcium, magnesium and tryptophan.
A mug of decaffeinated herbal tea, but without ginseng, which can act as a stimulant.
A small bowl of whole-grain cereal or warm oatmeal with milk. These contain magnesium, carbohydrates, calcium and melatonin.
Half of a turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread, a great source of tryptophan.
