getting enough sleep each siouxland news reporter kayla novak shows us...what you eat can have a big effect on how you sleep. 3 just under half of the american populalaon say they have issues sleeping at nigig. mercy's clinical dieticians say that having a balanced diet can promote better sleep "so its really important to make sure you are eating several times during the day and just having a well rounded diet is going to help promote sleep too." you can start with choosing whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats. some good choices for lean proteins include chicken without the skin, tofu and low-fat cheeses. "try to grill, broil or bake your meats, and try to avoid frying// if you do occasionally fry, try to choose some more heart healthy oils, maybe use olive oil or canola oil."some healthy fat sources are fish, peanuts, almonds and walnuts. whole grains can be found in breads,
10:18 pm
but be sure to read the ingredient label. "for example, there are some breads that maybe appear wheat or whole grain but they may just have some carmel coloring that make them appear to be wheat or whole grain but they may not be." also be aware of beverages with hidden sugars and caffeine. "well it is probably best to drink your caffeine in the morning, you know, maybe a little in the afternoon. but maybe by 2 or 3 o'clock maybe think aboutut discontinuing that caffeine especially if you are very sensitive to it." if you choose to have a bed time snack, make it small and have it an hour or two before bed. a few other things for better sleep are exposure to light, excersise and a positive attitude. kayla novak, siouxland news. 3 3 3 marcus meriden cleghorn and remsen union are joining forces to form a new school and of course a football team. hear from one of the coaches on the transition.
