I just got back from lunch and boy am I sleepy. I know there is a scientific reason behind these feeling of being tired after a meal. I just googled it and they say most foods contain tryptophan, which in turn is used by the body to create serotonin which is the hormone that makes us all sleepy. Anyway, maybe I'll drink coffee later to counter my drowsiness.

Well Yeah. I guess that is why they famously call naptime in the afternoon as "siestas"

That would not be a bad idea to enjoy some coffee.
