A quarter cup of tart cherries before bed would be the perfect snack to supplement your overall sleep efficiency. Montmorency cherries are the variety of tart cherries commonly found in North America. They’re not eaten fresh, but rather dried, frozen, canned, or as juice concentrate.
In addition to trace amounts of melatonin, which helps you fall asleep, tart cherries are also chock full of vitamin A and a number of powerful antioxidants.
Whole-grain Toast + Avocado
It’s a popular breakfast treat, but toast topped with avocado could also be a great midnight snack. A toasted slice of whole-grain bread topped with avocado, or two tablespoons of guacamole, will satisfy nighttime cravings without overloading on something unhealthy.
The avocado contains healthy fat and combined with a nutrition-rich piece of toast, it’s a filling treat full of protein and fiber. Breakfast can be enjoyed at all times of the day, after all.
