For years there has been a rumor floating around that turkey makes you sleepy. Sorry, but that's just an urban myth.
Here is a short version of the real reason you might want a nap after the Thanksgiving feast. All ot the other stuff!
Turkey doesn’t have enough tryptophan to make you drowsy. If it did, you’d get tired any time you eat a turkey sandwich. Eggs, cheese, spinach, and bacon all have more tryptophan per serving than turkey, which contains the same amount of tryptophan as chicken does.
Don't believe me? Hey, Snopes even checked out this claim and came to the same conclusion. I kid you not!
Coffee out on the chilly patio this morning. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone !!
