Have nightmares? Your bedtime snack could be to blame

Your nightmares may be tied to what you eat before going to bed.

(WRIC) — Do you wake up from nightmares often? Your bedtime snack could be to blame.

According to a nutritionist, dairy products like milk or cheese can affect chemicals in your brain and influence your dreams.

Processed meats can raise your blood pressure, sometimes causing nightmares.

Spicy foods have also been associated with weird dreams, possibly because the body has to work harder to digest them.
