Foods That Benefit Sleeping

We all know the difficulties of getting a restful night’s sleep after a tkr. As I’ve mentioned before, it took me a solid eight-ten months before being able to sleep through the entire night without excessive pain.

Eating certain types of foods before going to bed can make falling asleep easier, if only for a short time. Have you heard about drinking a glass of warm milk prior to bedtime? Or eating turkey to get sleepy? There’s a reason for that. Dairy and turkey contain tryptophan, an amino acid known for causing drowsiness.

There is a natural way to increase the effects of tryptophan so you can get as peaceful night’s sleep as possible. Combine tryptophan with carbohydrates for your late-night snack. Here’s a recipe I’ve always enjoyed that uses fresh fruit and dairy. Fruit contains large amounts of carbs and dairy contains tryptophan.

Strawberry or Blueberry Parfaits
makes 4 servings

1 pound strawberries or blueberries
2 c low or nonfat plain yogurt
6 T granola

Cut strawberries into quarters.
Divide the strawberries, yogurt and granola into two portions.
Take one portion of the strawberries and place in the bottom of four individual serving cups.

Take one portion of yogurt and scoop over the strawberries in each serving cup.
Put one-third of the granola into each of the serving cups.

Repeat this process and end with a piece of fresh fruit on the top.

This recipe works well with any fresh fruit, so go for it and help your sleep.
