When a vegan wakes up before sunrise, and there's no hope of going back to sleep, what does a vegan do? Well, this vegan makes a nice, steamy pot of Millet-Amaranth Porridge from Vive! It cooked up very nicely, and I went just by the recipe with the exception of using nutmeg in place of cardamom (Can I find cardamom anywhere? Nooo....). This is it before I added another splash of soymilk and a little bit of sugar to sweeten it:
So comforting and delicious for a cool, dark morning...
Thanks for all your feedback about my headaches. I think that was the reason I've had trouble sleeping. Anyway, after reading over your comments and doing a bit of research on the 'net, I've decided that I probably did have a migraine after all. I read that they can be caused by changes in the weather... So though I've never had one before, maybe that's all it is. I may go to the doctor to see if I have a sinus infection, just because I don't want it to flare up too bad if I do, but I don't think that's what it is. A couple of you mentioned acupuncture... Though that sounds a bit scary, I don't think I would be opposed to trying it sometime. But here, I don't know if it's even an option. I bet I would have to go to Atlanta--a 2 hour drive that I really can't afford right now, especially with midterms around the corner.
I've been trying to link more and more people, but it seems like I come across new blogs every day!
Have a good second half of your week, everybody. You all inspire me!
