Sleepy Breakfast

Our breakfast menu is loaded with outrageously delicious dishes. Some are better suited, however, to getting travelers into a sleepy space as they cruise to or from our destinations: St.Barts, Saint-Marteen, and Nassau.

  • Porridge with warm milk: A bowl of warm and cozy porridge is the perfect breakfast for passengers who want to cruise into slumber after eating. Oats naturally contain melatonin and are built with complex carbohydrates that promote better sleep. Warm milk is another calming ingredient, so it pairs perfectly with porridge.

  • Smoked salmon, hollandaise on French toast: Most fish, including smoked salmon, contain vitamin B6. This is one of the best vitamins for sleep and relaxation. It’s known as the anti-stress vitamin and is, therefore, a go-to ingredient for sleep.

  • Cottage cheese with toast is especially good as an easy-going breakfast. Cottage cheese is high in casein protein, which is slow-digesting and can promote sustained sleep.


Starters and Salads With Calming Ingredients

Want to pick a starter that won’t get you buzzing? These menu items all include sleep inducing ingredients:

  • Red mahi mahi gravlax: So delicious, mahi mahi contains vitamin B6. This pretty starter is perfect for those who love cured salmon but don’t want get too energized.

  • Tuna Tataki: Simply seared tuna tataki comes with a light foam, a mix of pickled veggies and a bright lemon olive oil drizzle. Tuna has a high vitamin B value which supports rest and sleep.

  • Superfood: This starter is nutrient-dense. In terms of sleep inducing ingredients, the base of the bowl, quinoa PLUS the inclusion of pumpkin seeds are key.

Both of these ingredients contain magnesium and tryptophan to support good sleep. This dish also features pomegranates, mango, tomatoes, chia seeds, and avocado. It’s a light and delicious starter.


Calming Foods as Lunch and Dinner Mains

These are Flying Seahorse’s top choices for meals that’ll take you to your lala land:

  • Tuna filet: Of all the fish in the sea, tuna has the highest level of vitamin B6! This is one of the key vitamins for releasing those sleepy feelings. 

  • Red snapper miso: This light and easy-eating fish comes with a delicious miso sauce and a choice of tasty sides. Vitamin B6, like in the other fish, triggers sleep.

  • Oven-baked sea bass: For the same reason as all the other fish options here, the vitamin B6 content. This luscious dish has grilled asparagus, pine nuts, mushrooms, and a Romaneso sauce.

  • Saffron risotto with graffiti cauliflower: risotto is a grain that contains magnesium and tryptophan as sleep-inducing ingredients.

  • Coral lentils: Lentils contain loads of fiber and protein, helping stabilize blood sugar levels and promote sleep. This is the perfect vegetarian leading choice to get snoozy with. This lightly spiced dish also features tomatoes, onions, tofu, ginger, and creamy coconut milk.


Something Sweet to Send You To Sleep

Just as the sunset spreads its glow outside the private jet’s window is just about the perfect time to enjoy a sleepy, sweet treat. Here are the best options on the menu with sleep-supporting ingredients:

  • Banana, apple, and raspberry smoothie: Light, smooth and creamy. The banana is high in magnesium and potassium, which help relax muscles and nerves.

  • Fruit dipped in chocolate: Fruit is a great way to end a meal without getting wired on loads of refined sugar. Dark chocolate contains serotonin precursors and can help regulate sleep cycles. 


7 Tips to Getting Sleeping en Route to St.Barts, Saint-Marteen, and Nassau

Beyond sleep, here’s how to get into sleeping mode while cruising to the islands on a private jet:

  1. Wear comfortable clothing: Dress in loose, breathable clothing and bring layers to adjust to changing cabin temperatures.

  2. Avoid stimulants: Steer clear of caffeine and alcohol, as they can disrupt sleep patterns and contribute to dehydration, which can make it a lot more difficult to get sleepy.

  3. Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water to counteract the closed cabin environment and maintain hydration levels. Be mindful not to drink too much to avoid frequent bathroom trips.

  4. Practice relaxation techniques: Deep breathing exercises, meditation, or progressive muscle relaxation can help calm the mind and body before attempting to sleep.

  5. Limited screen time: Reducing exposure to screens, including smartphones, tablets, and in-flight entertainment systems, can help. The blue light emitted from screens can interfere with your body's sleep-wake cycle.

  6. Stay relaxed: Listening to calming music or reading a book is a great way to stay relaxed during the flight.

  7. Stay consistent: Sticking to the usual bedtime routine, even while flying, signals to the body that it's time to sleep.
