Food That Will Help You Sleep Better

Wednesday, July 12, 2017

Sleep is very important for our body and overall help. But having that peaceful eight hour sleep is something we sometimes struggle with. At least I do. It's scientifically proven that certain food helps us fall asleep faster and better. Here are some of my favorite foods to eat before going to bed. 

Whenever I'm craving something sweet before I go to bed I always go for a banana. Banana is actually my favorite fruit. They actually have a muscle relaxing minerals and hormones that make you feeling relaxed. You can make smoothie, oatmeal or just eat it as it is. 

I love eggs in every possible way. They are so tasty and easy to make. For dinner I like to have boiled eggs with toast. Eggs are easy to digest and will make you full so you won't wake up in the middle of the night feeling hungry. 

Almonds, walnuts or hazelnuts are just the perfect snacks before bedtime. They contain magnesium, amino acid tryptophan and vitamin B6 who synthesis melatonin which is hormon for sleep. I like to eat them while I'm watching a movie as they replace unhealthy snacks. 

As a little girl my mum would always make me warm milk with honey in it before I went sleeping. I would drink it while I was all snugged in my bed reading a book. I think that comfort and warmth of milk makes me feel relaxed and happy.

Do you eat any of these food before bed? 
Do you struggle with sleeping?
