Most advice for better sleep habits relies on some pretty serious self-discipline. Changing your habits and going to bed at the same time every night or avoiding any caffeine after noon, can start to feel like serious work. But here’s some uplifting news: you can actually snack your way to better sleep. Sure, there are some foods and drinks that interfere with sleep (grande latte, I’m looking at you), but there are also some great things to eat for a better night’s sleep.
You can choose a bedtime snack that works in your favor. And because things like added sugar would be a bad idea when you’re trying to get some shut-eye, most of these snacks are wildly healthy to boot. Fresh fruits and veggies feature prominently, as well as a few good carbs.
A late-night snack doesn’t have to be a vice — it can become a healthy part of your bedtime routine. And if you’re a snack addict like me, these after-dinner treats are pretty much inevitable anyway, so you might as well choose foods that work in your favor. Here are your best bets for foods that will help you sleep more soundly. It’s the most delicious way ever to maintain good sleep habits.
