Food as medicine: Great question! Food IS medicine. I recommend eating a balanced diet that is rich in phytonutrients (green leafy vegetables and other brightly colored vegetables). Green tea in the morning will help provide a calm energy. Eating complex carbohydrates such as a sweet potato in the evening can help boost serotonin levels, which can potentially help one sleep better at night.
