Does Turkey Make You Tired?
We have all heard the rumor that Turkey makes people sleepy. With thanksgiving coming up we decided to do a little research and see if that is fact or fiction. Studies have shown that while turkey does have tryptophan- an amino acid that helps make serotonin, which then acts as a neurotransmitter, it is not enough to induce sleep in its eaters. So gobble away and enjoy this great desert recipe in the meantime. These pumpkin gingersnap parfaits are the perfect treat for your thanksgiving feast, offering a twist on the traditional pumpkin pie that is easy to make and even easier to eat.
Sleep well and Happy thanksgiving!
