Happy Thanksgiving Healthy Darlings!!! Today you are hopefully nuzzled up with friends and family to give thanks for all the many blessings in your life. You are also (hopefully) gearing up for a feast! You may have heard of Tryptophan, an essential amino acid that’s famous in turkey for making us sleepy (but really it’s in all poultry).
High Tryptophan foods:
- Help regulate your appetite
- Help you sleep better
- Elevate your mood (source)
However, according to this article in WebMd, turkey meat can’t take all the credit: it needs foods high in carbohydrates to help deliver the message to the brain. So go ahead an enjoy those mashed potatoes too for a cozy night of hard earned sleep!
On this day of giving thanks I want to Thank YOU for reading and sharing my blogs. Your support of the Darling sites and prayers throughout my brain surgery have meant more to me than I can ever express. I am indebted to all of You, my Darling readers. XOXOXO
