Deep Sleep Techniques
Prior to your meal, drink 1-2 tbsp. of Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with water to stimulate insulin response, helping to flatten glucose spikes.
Aim for protein-rich options with heavy greens and high fiber. This combination helps stabilize blood sugar levels and prevent spikes in cortisol, a stress hormone that can disturb sleep cycles.
Recommended Resort Option:
Kale Salad | Available at the Barefoot Grill.
Opt for a vinaigrette style of dressing with salads. If pasta is on the menu, be sure to start with a salad to help prevent the glucose spikes and dips from the heavy carbohydrates.
