#GetHealthy - Foods To Have Before Bed !

This week's #GetHealthy post is about foods to have before you go to bed. Most of us like to fill up our tummies with the misconception of having a good night's sleep. But a lot of us forget that with that good night's sleep, our next morning and many future ones to come are affecting our health in a negative way.

However, if you still wanna listen to your nagging tum-tums, you can always treat it with some healthy protein which boosts your body's energy expenditure. Furthermore, it helps in muscle building and repairing tissues after workout.

Kicking off with:

1. Nuts and Seeds

Nuts and seeds are protein-rich foods with fiber and heart-healthy fats. They are never associated with fat gain, although they are high in calories. They are also a good source of magnesium, which helps in falling asleep and helps muscles relax.

2. Cherries

One of my favorite foods to have before bed, I literally end up finishing the whole pack once I start. They are said to increase the body's production of melatonin, a hormone that naturally makes you feel sleepy. Drinking cherry tart juice results in small improvements in sleep duration  and quality in adults who suffered from chronic insomnia, also the juice can be an alternative if snacking on a bag of cherries seems unappetising.

3. Hard - Boiled Eggs

One of the richest sources of protein, which fills you up and helps you stay asleep through the night. Scrambled eggs or an omelet for dinner are other alternatives.

4. Tea

There's no harm with having a cup of decaffeinated tea before bed. My personal favorite is Chamomile, but alot of people also prefer Green tea, which also contains theanine, which helps you fall asleep.

5. Soy - Based Foods

These make excellent bedtime foods. Especially for individuals following vegetarian or vegan meal plans. Soy contains all essential amino acids which the body demands for everyday use, unlike most other plant based products. Foods made from soy include tofu, tempeh, edamame etc. 

Have a great week.

Udai Vilas #1

Hey guys, hope y'all are doing well. I have finally settled down in my new place in NYC. It's just so magical, sometimes it gets hard to believe that I am even here. 
Work has been keeping me very busy, affecting my consistency with blogging. But no matter what, I'll still find out time to show you guys some cool inspirations. 

This is one of my posts from my visit to Udaipur, India. Where I went on a family vacation and all credits go to my lovely cousin who was kind enough to take my pictures there. Topping the outfit with one of my favourite shirts from Scotch & Soda with such a refreshing mint color, paired with shorts from All Saints and shoes from Prada. 

If you have any recommendations for cool places to visit in NYC, feel free to drop down a comment.

Warby Parker

For all those who have been following Mclavin Style from the beginning must have noticed that I absolutely love my sunglasses and more than that how they add detail to my outfits. Each one of them having their own character and playing them well on the blog.

Recently I discovered Warby Parker, an american brand for sunglasses who design design eyewear and sunglasses in-house, selling directly to consumers. The company designs frames with a very vintage-inspired style.

I have a very high eye power, wherein, I rely heavily on contacts. When I thought of purchasing prescription sunglasses, either they were too pricey or not available in my desired design. However, Warby Parker makes it easy for its consumers to order and purchase prescribed eyeglasses and sunglasses online. They even offer trying their glasses at home for free.

One of many facets of the brand is its CSR initiative where each pair of glasses sold, a pair of glasses is distributed to someone in need in the US or developing world.

The brand is almost 4 years old and has grown remarkably well since its start. It has also been praised by fashion publications ELLE, GQ, Esquire, Vogue and others.

They recently launched their 2 new collections:

The Beacon Collection

For Beacon, they were inspired by impromptu, can’t-duplicate-them all-nighters, when having no plans brings endless possibilities. We designed our newest line of frames to make a similarly fine companion to late night dates, rooftop sunrises, and everything in between. 
Above are my top 3 favorites from The Beacon. Starting with 1. McKee - Moonstone (Women), 2. Ingram - Tiger Tortoise (Unisex) and 3. Garrett - Blue Slate Fade (Unisex). 

For more designs for this collection please visit this link The Beacon 

The Waterway Collection

When creating the Waterway Collection they took five of their favorite silhouettes for a quick dip, and they're more refreshing than ever-- their color palette inspired by warm coastal travels and landlocked stay-cations by the pool.
Above are my top 3 favorites from The Waterway. Starting with 1. Percey - Crystal (Unisex), 2. Piper - Sand Castle (Women) and 3. Bensen - Blue Slate Fade (Unisex).

Hope you enjoyed.
