If you want your night’s sleep to be strong, you’d better give preference to light low-calorie food for evening snacks.

The best snacks in the evening are the ones contain the lowest amount of calories and the tryptophan amino acid, which helps your body to produce niacin and serotonin, a hormone, which relieves stress and affects your sleep and appetite. For example, bananas promote your restful sleep, because they contain potassium, an essential mineral for beauty’s sleep. They also contain tryptophan, which helps you fall asleep faster.

Among other products containing serotonin: poultry, oatmeal and honey. Therefore, before going to sleep, try to include these products into your diet.

Also take a note of these healthy low-calorie snacking options before bedtime:

Smoothies

It can easily be called a quick snack, and that’s thanks to its easy ‘cooking’. It can be fruity, or made of berries or vegetables. First of all, you have to blend fruits or vegetables in a blender, and then you add any milk product that you prefer: milk, yogurt, soft cheese or kefir. But all this is not necessarily – many healthy people eat/drink pure smoothies, without any liquid additives.

Muesli bars

The only thing is that you must pay attention to the components and the number of calories in a single briquette.

Dried fruits

You have to be careful as they contain a significant amount of calories. However, they are super-healthy and are able to satiate your hunger if you eat them in small quantities. Do not rush with quickly eating a piece of dried apricots or prunes – prolong the pleasure by chewing it slowly.

Frozen fruits and berries

Frozen fruits or berries are also a great option for a low-calorie snack. Large fruits should be cut into small cubes and divided into portions. Mango and pineapples are perfect for a tasty and light snack before bedtime.
