A fatty snack before bedtime is unhealthy and will put you off from sleeping. But these 6 snacks do promote your sleep!
Do you find yourself sitting on the sofa in the evening with a growling stomach or just feel like a snack? Should you still feel hungry in the evening, here are some light snacks that will have an excellent effect on your sleep.
The evening snack should then meet a number of conditions. For instance, it should be a light snack: so no more than 150 to 200 calories, otherwise it is really too heavy on the stomach. In addition, it is best if the snack contains carbohydrates and some protein. Of course, be careful with snacks with caffeine in them, such as chocolate or also decaffeinated (!) teas. These can still affect your sleep.
These six evening snacks are good and light:
- A toasted slice of wholemeal bread with a tablespoon of almond butter
- A piece of fruit with a tablespoon of peanut butter (try it!)
- 50 grams of nuts with ¼ cup of dried fruits
- Half a cup of cereal with milk
- Pair of cheese toasts
