Tip 3: Healthy Eating Before Bed

Do you know the old Proverbs, “The Way To A Man’s Heart Is Through His Stomach”? Food Plays a huge role in relationships whether it is in the beginning of a romance or celebrating 50 years of marriage. When it comes to dates and anniversaries, what's on the menu becomes an important part of any relationship and highlight of the event, creating memories and lasting bonds eating your favorite cuisines or even cooking together and and having fun in the kitchen making new recipes together. Food becomes a part of the relationship as it becomes part of a human revolution.

“Humans have a theory of food; that there are "evolutionary, cultural, and neurocognitive underpinnings" to what we eat, why, how, with whom, and when that are as much a part of our minds as, for example, the instinct for acquiring language.”

- The Ominovorous Mind

The Omnivorous Mind mentions the topic surrounding food as a trigger on our memories, our emotions, and the connection with pleasure. But what if the food you are eating directly causes relationships problems because of the lack of the quality of sleep. Here is a great source of healthy eating for you and your partner:
