Our two favorite things are food and sleep, so here are three tasty recipes for better Zzz’s.
We’ll start with dinner, followed by dessert and finally a bedtime snack. Our advice – make them all at once to put their sleep-inducing powers to the test.
Maple Glazed Salmon with Pineapple Rice
This dish has two foods that help you sleep. Salmon is a primary source of omega-3 fatty acids – associated with improved sleep. And white rice, with its high glycemic index, triggers serotonin production to fall asleep faster.
Sour Cherry Pie
Tart cherries are a natural source of melatonin—the hormone that regulates the sleep and wake cycle to help you sleep better. Some sour cherry pie recipes can include up-to 2lbs. of fresh cherries!
Warm Milk with Honey, Vanilla and Cinnamon
Experts say warm milk can help trigger sleepiness by raising your body temperature and then making your body work to cool back down again. With plenty of delicious flavors to satisfy your taste buds add a pinch of pumpkin pie spice for an even better time.
The truth is, these three meals all in one sitting will put anyone to sleep – but if you must try one, in honor of National Pie Day, it’s this Classic Sour Cherry Pie with Lattice Crust recipe we recently tried.
You’ve never had a cherry pie this good, bible.
