Having trouble sleeping?  Here are some Edible Sleep Aids.

Sleep impacts how you feel throughout the day and nutrition plays a big role in how well you sleep.  Try these foods to help you naturally produce serotonin and a good-night's sleep.

  • Complex carbs like cereals, brown rice and whole grains aid in sleep. Avoid simple carbs like cookies and cake, as sugar will reduce serotonin levels
  • Lean proteins like low-fat cheese, chicken, turkey, and fish
  • Warm milk, tea with chamomile or peppermint
  • Fresh herbs like sage and basil contain chemicals that reduce tension
