If you wake up in the middle of the night or perhaps simply want something to snack on after dinner, then it’s important that you choose your food wisely. After all, you won’t want to eat food that makes you feel bloated and ruins your sleep. Here are some healthy nighttime snacks that you can enjoy that are conducive to sleep.

Walnuts or Almonds

Both of these nuts are filled with fiber, improving digestion, and antioxidants which reduce inflammation and pain. Walnuts, in particular, contain omega-3 fatty acids which are effective at inducing sleep while there is plant protein as well.

Smoked Salmon on Whole Wheat Crackers

Salmon is rich in both omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D, making it effective at inducing sleep while also reducing salt cravings as you head to sleep. Put the salmon on crackers with some cream cheese for a tasty late-night snack.

Yogurt With Granola

Packed with calcium and protein, yogurt is nutritious and tasty, making for an ideal snack before bed. The Vitamin D and tryptophan found in yogurt will boost your heart and immune health while also helping to make you sleepy. The omega-3 in granola will also do well to put you at ease.
