Last night I didn't sleep as easily or as soundly as I did the first two nights of the cleanse. The only thing I did differently was add rice milk to my evening cup of turmeric tea.
While wandering around the house at 3:00 A.M., I opened the refrigerator to read the label on the milk. Without my glasses, the only thing I knew for sure was that the milk wasn't flavored with vanilla or chocolate. Therefore, I assumed, it was unsweetened.
My box of original rice milk in fact has 10 grams of sugar per 8 oz. serving.
Tonight, same routine but instead of the offensive rice milk, I added 4 oz. of unsweetened almond milk to the tea.
And I'll be ready to head to bed with my book in about 5 minutes.
It's a good experiment, and one that points towards sugar as the culprit in my poor sleep habits. (I wonder if there is such as thing as unsweetened red wine.)
