sleeping less!

i don't know if this is a new trend, but last night as well as the night before i found myself awake for an extra two hours. I was tired but I felt like I could still force myself to work if I wanted to.
I slept a total of 5 hours and I'm fine now..

Is this because of my extra energy? or maybe it is just a phase.
b-pear sliced, cinnamon, flax, nut mylk.
s-carob sauce: carob powder, nut mylk, dates. with pecans for dipping :) and an orange.

homemade miso soup for dinner with definitely NON-raw tofu.
as the first non-raw meal, i say this is pretty good. I'm going to drink a ton of water to counteract this odd headache i have..would miso do that?


  1. I've heard of this! ;) I don't go to bed on time to begin with so I have yet to experience this but I can only imagine how much stuff I'd get done with an extra two hours. Good for you!

  2. your carob sauce looks delicious. i had the most fantastic vegan chili today for lunch--it had crushed tomatoes, red pepper flakes, black beans, chunky seitan, carmelized onions, green and red peppers, and big pieces of tofu. yum. and i tried a piece of vegan bratwurst? interesting flavor, i really couldn't tell the difference from regular sausage... hmmm
    i love your blog ps, it's really cool. i'm going to check on you daily.

  3. Thanks for the comment Heidi!
    I want to be really specific on what symptoms of detox I'm feeling, and even mood lifts, or energy levels. It's good for future reference. Raw breakfast crusts! I want to try those! I'm looking for raw granola. Maybe I'll find a recipe for it one of these days.

  4. T,

    the carob sauce was delicious! I think I need to be weary of my sugar levels though since fruit is sugary enough. Your chili sounds amazing! and thanks for the comment. How long have you been vegan for?


  5. oh as for sugar levels, i have tried going with more natural things, and not just raw fruit. for instance, on my breakfast granola i always use hemp seeds, toasted cooked kasha (buckwheat groats), sunflower seeds, golden raisins, a few almonds, and natural clover honey (i get mine from a local beekeeper i know who actually produces honey from the bees he owns, and there are no animal preservatives or additives, which i love because i get my energy without consuming stuff i don't want). i have tried buckwheat honey too. it gives me great energy to start my day with a little soymilk!
    i've been vegan for almost three years now. i'm still learning everyday.
