I am sooo excited to be sharing about a new resource with you today as it's from a very dear friend and colleague I've known since my Dietetic Internship days at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. (Let's just say, it was over a decade ago and leave it at that haha.) This May 14th, 2019, EAT TO SLEEP comes out - a book all about what to eat and when to eat it for a good night's sleep! This incredible guide is by Karman Meyer, a fellow Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) and the creator behind TheNutritionAdventure.com. I was lucky enough to review Karman's first book and am sharing how I incorporated her expert advice into our weekly meal plans. Keep reading to see how I pulled it all together.
In EAT TO SLEEP, Karman literally has everything you could want to know or need to achieve better sleep in her comprehensive book...
For my household, we 1,000% know the importance of good sleep (after all, walking around like a zombie is no way to live!), but life happens and sometimes getting a good night's rest doesn't. This got me thinking more about how we craft dinners to be nourishing, balanced, and enjoyable - yes - but also, better for sound sleep! Here's how we approached this week's meal plan using advice from EAT TO SLEEP...
Check out how our meal plans turned out for the week!
Any grocery item with a ** was just to indicate a sleep-promoting food and you can see that I was able to include at least one of these incredible ingredients in every meal for this week! (Score!) Fortunately, in all of these master meals we're planning for this week, it was very easy to incorporate sleep-promoting foods.
If you want to learn more about each of these fabulous sleep-promoting foods or the food-sleep connection, I really hope you'll check out EAT TO SLEEP. Be sure to follow us over on IG (@themealplanningmethod) as we'll be having a GIVEAWAY of Karman's book soon, or you can pre-order your own copy at Amazon or Barnes & Noble here.
Here's to getting them zzz's friends!
