50 Foods That Help You Sleep

From Nutrient-Focused Cereal to Kale Chickpea Spreads

— May 22, 2015 — Lifestyle
There is a lot of technology geared towards helping people achieve better rest on a regular basis, but sometimes it's as easy as eating foods that will help you sleep. This is a collection of recipes inspired by ingredients full of naturally occurring substances that encourage a better night's sleep.

Some of the foods that help you sleep are as simple as cereal and milk, which combine carbohydrates and calcium that help people process tryptophan -- an essential amino acid -- easier. Of course, people are more familiar with foods that contain higher amounts of tryptophan like turkey. Yet elk boasts even more and surprising leafy greens are chock full of it as well. One of the best recipes is a kale chickpea spread delivers a double whammy of sleep-encouraging nutrients.
