Craving a snack after dinner? Try these protein rich bed time snacks

There's nothing wrong with having a light snack before bed, as long as it's a good blend of healthy carbs, fats, and/or proteins. And when you throw an amino acid (aka protein) heavy ingredient into the mix, you can rest easy knowing your bedtime snack is helping—not hurting—your quality of sleep.

We're big fans of gelatin and don't need any more reasons to eat it throughout the day, but knowing it's also beneficial to getting some beauty sleep is always good news! Some studies have shown that consuming gelatin before bed can significantly help improve sleep quality, thanks to the amino acid glycine. Results also showed respondents had an easier time falling asleep and were less tired the following day.
