The Best Foods to Eat for Deep Sleep

Sleep deprived? Fall asleep in a cinch by preparing your body for rest with these healthy, snooze-inducing snacks. Vee shares the best foods for encouraging a restful night.


A rise in blood sugar can reduce the production of orexin in the brain. Orexin is a recently discovered neurotransmitter that’s been linked to wakefulness. Try drizzling a small amount of honey in your chamomile tea. A different route to sleep: Keep dessert low in sugar.

Nonfat Popcorn
The carbohydrates in nonfat popcorn help bring the amino acid tryptophan into your brain, where it’s used to make a sleep-inducing neurotransmitter called serotonin. Since eating a heavy meal within two hours of bedtime can keep you awake, low-calorie popcorn (just 93 calories in three cups popped) is a great late-night snack. Choose plain, fat-free popcorn and jazz it up with some curry powder.

Halibut is packed with two building blocks for better sleep: tryptophan and vitamin B6, which has a mild flavor and meaty texture that appeals to finicky seafood eaters. Other foods high in tryptophan include poultry, beef, soybeans, milk, cheese, yogurt, nuts, and eggs. (“Milk” can mean a lot of different things these days.

Kale Chips
Don’t knock these baked veggie snacks until you’ve tried them. They’re surprisingly delicious! And the hefty dose of vitamin K helps repair and build muscles while you sleep. Simply chop up a bunch of kale, toss with olive oil and sea salt, and bake at 350 degrees until crispy.

Chamomile Tea
This herbal drink lacks the caffeine found in traditional teas, and it has a calming effect on the body. Also, a warm liquid before bed can make you sleepy by raising body temperature.
