It is hard for working professionals to sleep on time. The life of working-class in metropolitan cities like Banglore due to deadlines and workload and the life of students due to the habit of binge-watching has been this way. Amidst doing all or any of this, you lose track of time and realise that it is midnight and you are experiencing some major hunger pangs. Now, what you eat this time matters a lot not just for your health but for your sleep as well. If you take the not so appropriate food item for this time, not even the mattress in Banglore that you are using will be able to make you fall asleep quickly. For instance, you might be craving a cheesy sandwich, burger, pizza or caffeine but all of these are what you must abhor from eating during that time. You should rather prefer fruits and not packaged snacks or sugar in processed form. Why? Because all of these are known to increase the energy levels that can disturb your sleep. But, the question that arises here is, then what is that you should eat at this hour? What if we say that we are going to tell you in this post the food items that are not just healthy but good for your sleep and good in taste as well? Interested? You surely are.
