Insomnia

insomniaFor anyone suffering insomnia here are a couple of tips;

1. Don’t have any form of caffeine after 4pm and remember even green tea and dark chocolate contain caffeine so try to have these earlier in the day. Fizzy drinks also often contain caffeine

2. Complex carbohydrates and protein at dinner can aid sleep by producing the amino acid tryptophan, the precursor to serotonin which helps us to sleep and also is helpful for alleviating depression. e.g. Brown rice and chicken stir-fry or salmon steak with salad and ‘artisan’ 5 seed bread.

Sugar Addiction

easter eggsAt last the UK is getting wise to the fact that SUGAR is a BIG PROBLEM.

So addictive and so much of it out there! As Easter approaches try finding presents like ‘make your own bunny’ or make an Easter hat with the kids.

Do anything creative – they will love that and go mean with buying Easter milk chocolate eggs – they are getting cheaper and cheaper cos everyone needs to get addicted to milk chocolate.

It’s great for Cadbury’s shares.
