Eat Well, Sleep Well

It is true, your diet can help (or hurt) your sleep. If you are sleep sensitive pay close attention. We imagine you are just a handful of almonds away from a good night’s sleep! Almonds (much like turkey) contain tryptophan which research considers a sleep aid. Obviously, some of the items that made our lists below are just a friendly reminder. However, some of these items we would have never thought twice about.
