Why can't i ever stay awake after having some things? ex. lettuce, spinach, berry smoothie. i thought "food comas" happen with high fat/large meals?

Other causes?: You are correct! Lettuce and spinach should absolutely not induce a " food coma" Think about other causes of daytime sleepiness as not enough evening sleep? Other medications? Mood? Other factors?
