Yesterday, I read this article on Science Daily (link) about how individuals’ dietary patterns are related to their sleep patterns.  Researchers found that individuals who were “normal sleepers”, or slept 7-8 hours at a time, had the greatest dietary variety.  People who slept 5-6 hours at a time had the highest caloric intake (more time to eat?) and people who slept <5 hours at a time had the least dietary variety.  Interesting! I am a really good sleeper 😉 and think I also have pretty wide dietary variety…I also often have amazing vivid dreams and I would love to know if there is anything I can eat to increase that! It makes for a funny thing to think about in the morning 🙂  I keep a dream journal sporadically but perhaps I should also keep a dinner journal along with it!
