We were going to make this a serious post, sharing a list of foods that may help you fall asleep naturally. We were going to mention almonds (due to their magnesium content), dairy products (for their tryptophan content), cereals (to encourage serotonin), non-fat popcorn and honey.
However, when we got to the suggestion of hard boiled eggs via our source link, we couldn’t remain completely serious. Apparently, if you’re having trouble sleeping you should indulge in a midnight snack of hard boiled eggs. The explanation is a little ambiguous as to why hard boiled eggs can cure your lack of sleep; we’re guessing it has something to do with their protein levels.
Unfortunately the idea of us recommending insomniacs feverishly boil eggs at midnight in order to cure their insomnia put images in our heads that made it impossible to keep this post serious. That being said, if you feel as though you’ve got nothing to lose, give the boiled egg cure a try and let us know how it works for you!
