Just as sleep can affect what you eat, what you eat can affect your ability to sleep! Choosing the right foods, especially in the late afternoon and evening, can make a difference in your ability to get an restful night of zzzz's.
Adequate rest and regular, consistent sleep patterns are both essential pieces of the puzzle when it comes to eating right (and optimizing recovery and athletic performance!) Adults are recommended to aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep per night... what's holding you back?
