To sleep well, avoid heavy meals and eat within 2 hours of bedtime. This is the basis. But some foods like broccoli, spices or ice cream can also disrupt our sleep …
To sleep well, exit the high fat hamburger, fries or pizza … They take a lot longer to digest and lengthen the duration of sleep.
In the evening, we eat light and especially we avoid the meat. Like high-fat dishes, meats require a much longer digestion time than other foods. We prefer a good vegetarian dinner or a good vegetable soup accompanied by a yoghurt.
Beyond the comfort brought by the ice cream savored from the pot by watching our favorite romantic comedy, we must avoid it before going to sleep. Rich in fat (heavy to digest) and fast sugar, it will give you energy and prevent you from getting to sleep.
Especially broccoli, cabbage, onions and cauliflower … Excellent for health, we prefer them for lunch because they cause bloating and gas.
Cherries, celery or cranberry can disturb our sleep by forcing us to get up to relieve your bladder in the middle of the night. We avoid before going to sleep!
The spicy dishes
To enter a deep sleep, the temperature of our body must drop. However, some spices can contribute to increase thermogenesis and therefore participate in a bad sleep. In high doses, they can also irritate the stomach. Two reasons to avoid them at dinner.
Alcohol and coffee
Side drinks, avoid those rich in caffeine that like sugar will not boost us and delay falling asleep. Same for soft drinks.
Be aware that dark chocolate contains caffeine and theobromine, a stimulant that increases heart rate and can cause insomnia.
