This Is When You Should Eat These Foods

 Everyone knows that what we eat has a big impact on our physical and mental wellbeing. However, studies have shown that eating foods at certain times of the day can also have a positive or negative effect. Some foods can give us that much-needed boost of energy in the morning, while others will prove useful when trying to fall asleep. Below, we have outlined the best time of the day to indulge in some of your favorite foodstuffs.
 
Bananas

Best time of the day: Supper

The vitamin B that is found in bananas can help to support serotonin production which helps to regulate sleep. Therefore, a banana and a glass of hot milk before bed can help you get the good night’s sleep that you desire.

 

Meat

Best time of the day: Breakfast or lunch

Some evidence has found that eating lean red meat can help to regulate your appetite. Therefore, eating red meat earlier in the day – with breakfast or lunch – may help us feel fuller for longer.

Rice

Best time of the day: Lunch

Whole grain brown rice contains plenty of calcium, fiber, magnesium, and potassium. To add to its nutritional value, it also has a low glycemic index which means that its energy content is released slowly. Therefore, this should be eaten at lunch to help keep hunger at bay.

 
 Oranges and Apples

Best time of the day: Breakfast or Lunch

These are acidic foods, so they are best eaten in the morning or as a snack during the day. The reason for this is because you really wouldn’t want to go to bed on a heavy stomach.

Yogurt

Best time of the day: Anytime

Yogurt is high in protein and calcium, and while having a late-night snack is not the best idea, yogurt is a healthier alternative to biscuits if you’re feeling hungry in the evening.

Nuts

Best time of the day: Breakfast

Nuts are a fantastic source of protein and healthy fats. These can be added to cereals or eaten as a morning healthy snack for a great energy boost.
