what can I eat as a snack before bedtime, being a diabetic.............................
I would suggest something with a little protein or fat. Apples with nut butter, a little cheese, a handful of nuts, some cottage cheese are all great pre-bedtime snacks.
If I make the blast how much decaf green tea should I add to the blast?

The problem is if I drink anything 3 hours before bed I am up to the loo early in the morning and then can't get back to sleep. Maybe I should just eat a banana and some almonds? Unfortunately I am doubtful as this has been an increasing issue for me.

You could try what I have found helps...i drink a lot more before going to bed...then I have to get up a lot earlier in the night, and easily fall right back to sleep. Otherwise, I do the same as you...if I wake up at 5:00 am, I never get back to sleep.

My guess would be about an hour before you want to sleep.

I agree with you. It takes anything I put in my body to sleep (melatonin, sleepy tea etc.) a few hours before it "kicks in"...
