If you're trying to be healthy, but find yourself craving sweets before you hit the hay, then this peanut butter protein bomb from Men’s Health
nutrition advisor Michael Roussell, Ph.D. will do the trick without giving you the guilt.
The dessert is high in casein, a protein that is found in dairy products and comes complete with chemicals known as casomorphins, which promote relaxation and aid in inducing sleep. And let's not forget it also helps to build muscle while you snooze. In fact, a recent Dutch study found that drinking a casein shake before bedtime increased protein synthesis while people caught their nightly shut-eye.
