Laughin’ In My Sleep

April 8, 2011

We are having some major sleeping issues around here. First me for the two nights I was in the hotel. And then last night Matt was awake at 2am and never really went back to sleep. He finally got out of bed at 5 and I mumbled “You can make the buckwheat bakes to be ready at 7 if you want” and fell back asleep.

I didn’t sleep all that well myself – it was HOT! We have our heat off and the house was 69*! We should have opened a window, but all of the storm windows are still down.

Lastly – Matt said I was LAUGHING in my sleep last night! I guess that’s better than crying!?

I also had dreams about airports, kale chips and MamaPea

So were the buckwheat bakes ready at 7? YES THEY WERE!

BuckwheatBlog

Go Matt! Luckily I had prepped the dry ingredients last night and left a post-in for myself with the wet measurements so he was easily able to find them. I think I also mumbled “Edible Perspective…” in my sleep too.

Fruit Pie Buckwheat Bake

Inspired by Ashley’s Coconut Cream Blueberry Buckwheat Bake

For ONE bake:

Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup buckwheat flour (ground from raw buckwheat groats)
  • 1 tbsp buckwheat groats
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 mashed banana
  • 1/4 cup 1% milk
  • 1/4 cup frozen mixed fruit (was worried the strawberries would be too big/liquidy but they were the best part!!)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 tbsp coconut butter flakes (not quite as good as Ashley’s stuffed cream and a bit undetectable)
Method
  • Preheat oven to 350*
  • Mix dry [I do this the night before in a jar]
  • Mix wet.
  • Pour wet into dry.
  • Grease oven safe dish.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Cool slightly and topped with Flying Squirrel PB – Sneaky Cinnamon and GH jam – plus coconut sprinkles!

Dig in! I left it in the ramekin for easier eating, but I actually think removing it is more fun!

Peek in there to see the fruity pie filling!

Half a cup of coffee. My body is SO over this caffeine withdrawal. I’ve felt hungover many mornings recently. I think I need to ditch it once and for all – or go back to drinking a full cup! Ahhh. [FYI, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with coffee – in fact I think it’s good for you – but I just hate being addicted to it!]

I agree! We keep the house at 64 at night during winter and at 74 during summer. How do you keep it so cool when its 100 degrees out? Your air con bill must be enormous!

I do weird things in my sleep as well. I (sometimes) sleep with my eyes half open, so you can only see the white part, and it freaks everyone out! One time my friend almost called 911 because she thought something happened to me. LOL! Have a great day!

Reply

11 Kris April 8, 2011 at 8:06 am

Coffee isn’t necessarily a bad thing in small amounts. I’ve given it up twice, only to realize that my one cup a day isn’t bad for me. My father hated it and never drank it, and also was diagnosed w/ Alzheimers and Parkinsons in his late sixties. The reported benefits from coffee in terms of Parkinsons and Alzheimers, and the small amount I drink (I’m done w/ my one cup by 7:00 a.m.) convince me to keep on joeing.

Reply

12 KathEats April 8, 2011 at 8:10 am

I know, but I am overly sensitive to it and I just can’t get in a groove. Even going from 1 whole cup to half makes me ache, and adding a half cup makes me jittery. I think I just need a break

Reply

13 Kris April 8, 2011 at 8:27 am

Sorry, forgot to mention you must be overly sensitive. Not generalizing; what works for one doesn’t necessarily work for another.

Reply

14 B & B April 8, 2011 at 8:42 am

I didn’t know you were sensitive to it. I thought you were just giving it up because as you said above you didn’t like being addicted to it. To which I was going to say(!) – to read the message on your napkin – and not worry about it then. ;)

30 minutes?! Eek. That’s a long time. Can you freeze or refrigerate them a day or so before to have?

Reply

15 Becky April 8, 2011 at 8:59 am

I struggle with the coffee thing too. I love it, and I don’t think it’s bad in moderate quantities. I’m also not as sensitive to it as you seem to be. I don’t want to give up my coffee, but I hate that when I have to go without (for instance if we are traveling or if I’m rushing in the morning and don’t get my cup of coffee), I get a withdrawal headache and feel like crap. I haven’t found a good solution yet, but I definitely empathize with your struggle.

Why do you think that coffee is a good thing, Kath? I thought that caffeine isn’t the best thing for us? Thanks. Just curious :)

17 KathEats April 8, 2011 at 12:46 pm

I did a report on it last year in one of my nutrition classes. Research shows that 1-2 cups a day is beneficial (antioxidants, slight central nervous stimulation) but more than 2 cups can be detrimental

Thanks, Kath!! I’ve been drinking green tea lots usually and was a little worried about the caffeine but it’s been doing the kindest things to my skin!

Sorry to hear about the sleeping issues — I was tossing and turning for weeks and I’m not sure why, but lately I’ve been sleeping like a rock. I slept so “hard” last night that I slept past my alarm and was almost late to work! That never happens!

I think I’ll try one of those bakes for dinner sometime — I just can’t see myself spending so much time making breakfast!

Reply

20 Faith @ lovelyascharged April 8, 2011 at 8:09 am

Bleh, that caffeine withdrawl is brutal. I have such a hard time getting myself going in the mornings without it – not because of a lack of energy, but because my brain is threatening to explode inside my head!

Reply

21 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat April 8, 2011 at 8:14 am

The buckwheat bakes look amazing! I actually tried buckwheat groats this past week (sort of as an oatmeal-type breakfast – made the same way) but I’m going to see how good my Cuisinart is at grinding them into flour….. or I may just buy some buckwheat flour to do this!

Reply

22 Jo April 8, 2011 at 8:20 am

What size ramekins/oven-safe dishes are you using for the bakes? I’m trying to figure out if I have something that’s the right size.
Thanks!

I gave up coffee for Lent and while I don’t need the caffeine (I get enough from tea and sometimes I go decaf/no tea at all) I miss the taste of coffee sooo much. And since I gave up coffee, not caffeine, I can’t even brew myself a cup of decaf. Only two more weeks!

My husband laughs in his sleeps alot. I feel like it happens almost every other night! I hate sleeping in the heat. We live in Montana and we never NEVER never turn on the heat. I know it sounds crazy, but our little apartment keeps itself pretty warm. My husband uses like 4 blankets and I still only use 1.

Aw, the recap of your sleepytime had me laughing.

I also hate being addicted to coffee, and am having a major love/hate relationship with it right now. I love it, but I know it’s not great to drink 2…ahem, 3…ahem, 4..cups a day. Trying to cut down to one! UGH.

Reply

46 Haleigh April 8, 2011 at 9:44 am

I don’t hate being addicted to coffee. I try to savor every sip. I try not to drink more than 2 cups a day, though.

I can’t sleep when it’s hot either. It can be freezing, and I can still manage a good night’s sleep, but never when it’s hot!

49 Angie @ Musings of a Violet Monkey April 8, 2011 at 10:00 am

I’m perfectly content to be “addicted” to coffee… it’s kinda my thing. :)
I don’t ever feel any ill effects when I have “too much” caffeine throughout the day, or even late in the afternoon/evening – but I definitely notice when I DON’T have it. I know plenty of people are sensitive to it, but I can’t imagine!
French press coffee on weekends, and lattes (hot or iced – weather/mood dependent) made at home, to-go, on weekdays. Ooh la yum. :)

I don’t know that I could ever give up coffee – I know I’m addicted, but I like to laud the benefits of coffee as an excuse. Giving up advil (and all painkillers) was the most difficult thing I’ve ever done – sometimes I wonder if it was all worth it!

Sorry to hear about the tough night’s sleeping. Maybe it’s stress from the bakery and/or all the traveling making it hard for your body to adjust to one sleeping location? Either way, hope that turns around soon!

Definitely a great breakfast to wake up to though… love the toppings!

I sleep with a window open most of the year because I like our bedroom to be cool. 60 or below is good. I totally understand about the caffeine withdrawal. I am trying to give up Diet Coke. I was used to having two 32 oz. cups a day and I went cold turkey 10 days ago. I have felt very lethargic a lot of afternoons but the headaches seem to be gone. I just miss the taste but I’m afraid to just cut back and drink one now and then or I think I will have to start all over again. Traveling next week and that will be a real test for me.

I stopped drinking coffee in December. Just switched cold turkey to black tea and now I’m trying to switch to more green tea. I was AMAZED at the difference in my energy level – it was much more consistent throughout the day and I didn’t get the 3-4pm “slump” like I did before with coffee. I still miss the taste from time to time, but when I drink it now, I can have like, 3 sips and then my body starts going crazy! I never knew I was so sensitive to it until I stopped. I say try it – if there’s no major difference you can always go back :)

Reply

94 KathEats April 8, 2011 at 1:22 pm

I don’t know if I get a slump, but I have noticed a DECREASE in energy (particularly on my runs!) since cutting back. It could be coincidence, but it also could be the coffee :(

Coffee is so delicious, and such a pleasure for me that I could care less if I’m addicted! I love it, it makes me happy and it may help prevent/delay cognitive decline! Or at least that’s what I choose to believe… that and I wouldn’t have survived my intern year without it :)

I’ve tried to stop drinking coffee so many times for no reason other than I feel addicted to it.

Good to know I’m not alone in the thought process of “wait this isn’t bad for me, why do I care if I’m addicted?” :)

LOL, I love hearing what I talk about in my sleep. Sleepy talk is hilarious.

Those buckwheat bakes sure look tasty!

I have definitely laughed in my sleep a few times. Once I even woke myself up from laughing! It gave me a good chuckle the next morning :)

OMG. Those buckwheat bakes look AMAZING. I’m deeefinitely checking for buckwheat groats in the Whole Foods bins next shopping trip… I assume if I’m going to find them anywhere it’s there!

I love your fruity twist on these! I’ve yet to find buckwheat groats in Canberra but I also haven’t scoured all available health stores :)

Oh my gosh, I love it! My bf tells me I laugh in my sleep about once a week! I wish I knew what was so funny! :o)

I’m the same way with coffee – so easily addicted. I’ve been doing decaf for around 3 years now. Probably not the same health benefits of the real stuff though.
