Having trouble sleeping? Sleep specialist Michael J. Breus, PhD, suggests snacking on these four items: chickpeas, tart cherries, avocado, and eggs.

Breus also recommends avocado on a rice cake, and chickpeas, due to the amount of carbs full of melatonin and magnesium. Omelets are also recommended as eggs contain melatonin and L-ornithine, both of which -you guessed it- help improve the quality of your sleep.
