Break­fast OMELET TE WITH SPINACH AND AV­O­CADO

Pile on these greens for their mag­ne­sium and potas­sium, which re­lax blood ves­sels, nerves and mus­cles – es­pe­cially ben­e­fi­cial if you suf­fer from night­time cramps in your calves. Turns out av­o­cado toast doesn’t just get you In­sta­gram likes.

Lunch MI­CRO- CHOPPED TURKEY SALAD

It’s not fully clear whether Thanks­giv­ing drowsi­ness is re­lated to that sec­ond serv­ing of pie or to tryp­to­phan. How­ever, the amino acid in turkey does stim­u­late the pineal gland, which re­leases sero­tonin and mela­tonin, reg­u­lat­ing cir­ca­dian rhythms.

Din­ner GRILLED SAL­MON

Loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, the su­per­food-touted fish low­ers your nor­ep­i­neph­rine – a stress hor­mone that can dis­rupt REM sleep (the stage when your brain con­sol­i­dates and pro­cesses in­for­ma­tion).
