What's In This Blog

I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

Health As I Know It: Sleep and Nutrition from Everyday Health


This is a link which includes a couple videos, as well as an article on
 sleep; particularly as it relates to nutrition.
Step 1: Eat no less than 4 hours before going to bed; especially food
 high in carbohydrates.
Step 2: High protein food late in the day because they contain 
something that helps you sleep.
Step 3: Include dairy, chick peas nuts, broccoli a few hours  before bed.
Tip: Avoid alcohol and caffeine before going to bed, or entirely as these
 can interfere with sleep.
Step 4: Salads with fruit, such as apples and pears, which calm the 
digestive system.
Step 5: Eat comfort foods, like chicken noodle soup, which calm you 
mind and make you feel good.
Tip: Keep your weight down.
Step 6: Chamomile tea with ginger calms the digestive system.  
Warm milk can also serve in this function.
The tip on keeping my weight down would be good for me.  My weight
 I am sure contributes to sleep apnea.  By losing some weight I maybe
 could get rid of my CPAP machine.  I never use caffeine, or alcohol.  
I do eat too late in the day, but have started taking my evening meal to
 eat on the train.  The days I remember, it seems to help.
