My Sleepy Time Energy Shot

Chia seeds are an excellent source of energy. They are full of fiber and good fats. Drinking 1 oz of tart cherry juice twice a day has shown to have a significant role in maintaining healthy sleep patterns since these cherries are naturally high in melatonin. I do this “shot” in the morning and then just take a swing of cherry juice in the afternoon.

Tart Cherry Chia Shot

1 oz tart cherry juice

2-3 teaspoons chia seeds

Pour juice into a glass and add chia seeds. Allow to stand several minutes to let the seeds soften. I use a spoon to eat the seeds first and then drink the rest.

Also try my Cherry Vanilla Granola. Oats are another natural source of melatonin.
