To normalize your sleep, sometimes the best thing to do is to eat right. We have chosen the most delicious snacks, which can and need to be eaten at night. Here goes.
Cereals + Skim Milk
The carbohydrates in grains help you fall asleep, and the protein in milk helps you sleep well throughout the night. Also, milk is high in calcium and magnesium – key elements for healthy sleep. One cup of low-sugar oatmeal (no more than 6 grams of sugar per serving) and a glass of skim milk is enough for healthy sleep.
Low Fat Greek Yogurt + Melon
Dehydration can be one of the causes of poor sleep. Fruits with a high fluid content can compensate for the lack of water in the body. In addition to melons, apples, oranges, and pears are great. Combined with protein, which is abundant in yogurt, your dessert will be a good sleeping aid. Combine fruit chunks with ½ cup Greek yogurt.
Dried Cherries + Pistachios
Pistachios contain the perfect cocktail of protein, magnesium, and vitamin B6, responsible for deep sleep. Studies have also shown that cherries contribute to the production of melatonin (a hormone responsible for regulating circadian rhythms). The main thing is not to overdo it; for healthy sleep, 30 grams of nuts and a cup of cherries are enough. Exceeding the daily allowance can have the opposite effect.
Crackers + Cheese
Crackers and raw crackers contain calcium, magnesium, and tryptophan, which we need for sleep. Low-fat mozzarella is the perfect accompaniment to crunchy grain crackers. But don’t get carried away; extra calories can cause insomnia.
