And because of these troubles, you will end up staying up the whole night. The best time to eat these veggies is in the day time because if you eat these vegies in the day time it would be digested till night or before you lay down in your bed.
Cured Meat and cheeses -
Cured Meat and cheeses are a great choice to have in your breakfast or in your lunch. But you should avoid eating these in your dinner because meat contains high protein and cheese have amino acid tyramine which makes you alert.
