Eat These 5 Foods If You Have Sleeping Problems

www.cumbria-hypnosis.com
I thank God I don't have any sleeping problems. I sleep early and wake up early, getting some 6 to 7 hours of sleep daily. But some people can't. I like to help them out with these food suggestions:

1. Cherries

Cherries are good berries for enhancing sleep. You say we have no cherries in the Philippines except bottled and preserved ones? Try fresh Aratilis.

2. Walnuts

These are rich in tryptophan, an amino acid that promotes sleep by helping the body produce more serotonin and melatonin. Furthermore, the University of Texas discovered that walnuts give you more melatonin on it's own. So, you'd sleep faster with these nuts.

3. Almonds

They are rich in magnesium, exactly what you need for quality sleep. A study featured on the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine said magnesium lack causes you to find it hard to stay asleep.

4. Cheese and Crackers

This is probably the easiest food you can find around when you have trouble sleeping. Truth is, dairy foods help you go to sleep, so count in milk as well. Dairies are rich in calcium which affects the brain's use of tryptophan for melatonin production.

5. Lettuce

It has lactucarium which has a sedating effect on the brain, like what opium does.

Since these foods are not hard to find, you shouldn't be having anymore sleeping problems from now on. And, always eat meals on time. Habitual late night dinners, for instance, will eventually cause sleeping problems.

There you have it on Choy's Cut---for cheap health and fitness with middle income budget.

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

You'd be Shocked How Healthy Butong Pakwan Really Is

Butong Pakwan or watermelon seed. We've been thinking, all we get from eating it is salt (butong pakwan sold in small packs are salted for taste) and chewing fun to kill time away.

I used to just let the seeds remain in my mouth until I have sucked all their saltiness. And then I'd spew them all out.

But don't take butong pakwan lightly from now on.

Nutritionists claim butong pakwan actually has tremendous health benefits.  No less than the US National Institute of Health says butong pakwan is rich in magnesium which is important for regulating blood pressure and metabolizing carbohydrates which is good for normalizing blood sugar.

Butog pakwan also has iron, phosphorus, potassium, copper, sodium zinc and manganese which are vital minerals.

It's also so rich in protein. A cup of it satisfies 61 percent of your daily recommended dose of protein. The protein includes tryptopjan, amino acids, glutamic acid arginine and lysine. Some experts say added arginine may be good f…
