Eating foods with high amounts of tryptophan will help to naturally increase melatonin production. Tryptophan is an amino acid that can be found in most foods containing protein – such as turkey, chicken, salmon, nuts, eggs and seeds.

Serves: 2

Time: 30 min


250-300g chicken thigh fillets or chicken tenders

1 free range egg, lightly whisked

½ cup almond meal

1/2 lemon (zested)

1 tablespoon dried rosemary

1 tablespoon dried thyme

1 clove garlic, crushed

2 tablespoons of coconut oil

Himalayan or Celtic sea salt

Black pepper ground

1 lemon (to serve)


Flatten the chicken thighs by pounding between 2 pieces of baking paper

Mix together almond meal, rosemary, thyme, zest of ½ lemon, garlic, and generous amounts of salt/pepper in one bowl

Whisk egg in another bowl

Dip each piece of chicken in the egg mixture, then coat with almond mixture, pressing it onto the fillets (make sure there is a good coating).

Place schnitzels in fridge for 30-60 minutes (or longer) to firm up

Heat coconut oil in frypan and cook schnitzel on medium heat for about 10 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
