  1. So what *is* good to eat before bed? A banana? A small cup of plain yogurt w/ fruit? A cheese stick and crackers?

    I think a good alternative to alcohol is peppermint or chamomile tea. Chilled in the summer, warm in the winter.

  2. Cheese and wheat crackers—whole wheat—is always a good bet. For drinking before bed, I like a double-milk steamed decaf java or tea
