Natural Sleep Aid...Cottage Cheese

A serving of cottage cheese contains almost double the tryptophan found in milk (140 mg), but like milk, cottage cheese is rich in calcium, a mineral that assists the body in making melatonin. Note: Eating a heavy meal or snack close to bedtime can actually keep you awake, try cottage cheese sprinkled with cinnamon, berries, or sliced banana for a light, simple sleepy time snack.
