It’s National Sleep Awareness Week this week, March 5-11, and did you know that your choice of bedtime snack can affect the quality of the Zs you’re getting? The National Sleep Foundation actually suggests that you look for a snack that has both protein and carbohydrates. The carbohydrates and the tryptophan together will help release insulin and get the seratonin and the melatonin to the right places and levels to help you sleep. Soon, you’ll be off in dreamland.
Whole Foods was kind enough to send over a few suggestions that combine both the protein and the carbohydrates to help you catch a few extra winks and blinks in the middle of the night. Everyone feels better after a good night’s rest.
