Little bit of nutrition tip this morning:

"To get a good night’s rest, consider swapping that cheeseburger for a turkey burger
A study from the Federal University of São Paulo, in Brazil, found that increased fat intake-at any 
point in the day, but especially at dinner-resulted in less REM (deep) sleep, more sleep apnea 
and more tossing and turning. And it’s a double whammy: Fat steals sleep, while fatigue makes 
the body crave it. To break out of the cycle, trim the PM fat from your diet."
