Have you heard of tryptophans? You know, they’re that thing that’s in turkey that makes everyone sleepy after Thanksgiving dinner? Your body turns tryptophans into melatonin which in turn can make you sleepy. Did you know that there are other foods besides turkey that contain tryptophans?

I find that falling asleep at night is tough some nights. It really helps me to have a routine that helps me unwind. An hour or so before bedtime, I stop doing anything stimulating – like working, watching scary movies or playing video games. I find a good book or relaxing television program and spend my last hour unwinding. I generally have a cup of herbal tea like chamomile which helps me unwind. These Sleepytime Banana Oatmeal Muffins are the perfect snack. They’re low in sugar, have extra protein from the Greek yogurt and are high in those tryptophans that can help you fall asleep.
