Great for: A sleep-inducing snack before bed
We can't overemphasize the power of a good night's sleep during training. A restful sleep aids in muscle recovery, cellular repair, and weight loss. Tart cherries, walnuts, and oats are part of the family of foods found to have real capability to prepare the body for sleep and encourage a restful sleep. This recipe throws these powerhouses together for a smart, satisfying snack before bed.
P.S. If you're wondering which foods to avoid before sleep: dark chocolate, foods high in fat (ice cream), sugary yogurt or cereal.
