Yes, it’s surprising to see celery on the list of the worst foods to eat before bedtime, but you should avoid it right before going to bed in order to have a deep, uninterrupted sleep. In fact, there’s nothing wrong with eating celery in the evening, but it’s a natural diuretic and it can increase your rate of urination more than usual. This means you will wake up a few times during the night.
Don’t eat too much celery before bed or don’t eat it at all. You can reach for carrots instead. They are loaded with Vitamin A which is good for your skin and for your vision, and it won’t disturb your sleep.
I like to eat carrots, red bell peppers and a little bit of celery with homemade hummus before bedtime, but I do it in moderation. Green smoothie is a healthy bedtime snack as well.
