Due to increasingly bad digestive woes, I’ve gone back to a mostly raw vegan diet (as opposed to mostly cooked and starchy vegan diet) and a cool side effect is happening. I am not normally a dreamer, at least that I can recall in the morning, but lately I am having very vivid, clear, intricate, odd, detailed dreams that actually stay with me for a bit after waking up in the morning. I’ve heard raw foodists make this claim before, but I kind of didn’t believe it. But, I cannot deny that there is a dramatic change in my sleep state since going back to mostly raw food. I mean, these dreams would make fabulous Sci-Fi movies! LOL — I may need to start writing them down. They have major plot lines. I wonder what would happen if I went 100% raw?! It’s not like my system is pristine or anything as I do drink coffee and alcohol, and my nut/seed butters tend to be roasted because roasted is cheaper and I’m on a budget right now. (Raw almond butter is like $16 a pound!) If I actually quit caffeine, booze, and roasted nuts I’d probably be able to dream up an Oscar winning film. 🙂 Do any of you have experience with a change in diet influencing your dreams? I’d love to hear your stories.
Fruit and veggie-ly yours,
