An innocent piece of banana nut bread before bed and my dreams were a hot mess!
Have you ever guzzled a heavy meal (or gobbled down a brownie before bedtime) and had dreams where you were…
- …running through quicksand?
- …falling off a cliff?
- …or being served as lunch to a mob of hungry cannibals?
Ok, you may have not had these exact dream scenarios (I hope not), but no doubt, if you pay attention to your dreams, you can relate to the price you pay for late-night sugary snacks.
You don’t have to be a scientist, dietitian, or a metaphysician to know that what affects your body affects your mind, and vice versa. After all, we are what we eat… especially in the hours leading up to sleep.
I know this…but I honestly didn’t think an innocent piece of banana nut bread would do me in!
I was wrong.
My dreams were a hot mess/violent roller coaster ride from hell.
Was it worth it?
I think not.
My poor husband had it worse than me, trying to avoid my thrashing around in bed-and not in a good way 😉
Here’s the deal, if you want to have your cake and eat it too (translation: have sweet dreams and a tasty late night snack) it’s all about the LPS (light protein snack)!
When we gobble sugary sweets (wine, cake, even bread that converts to sugar) our blood sugar spikes, then drops like a crazed roller coaster, sending our adrenal glands careening into overdrive. Whereas if we eat protein (a glass of milk, piece of cheese, handful of almonds) it stabilizes our blood sugar and can be the set up for the sweeeeet dreams that our body craves more than a pan full of brownies slathered in syrup and chocolate chips.

(Stop Getting Burned By Acid Reflux And Angry Digestion)
