  • brown rice with wakame salad and nori all rolled together, believe it or not. oh and homemade refried beans instead of the wakame salad is good too.
  • Yeah, I sleep a lot less these days, and i’m not even close to 100% raw. I think it’s because i eat fewer oils than I used to, though I try to eat some almonds, pepitas, flaxseeds regularly. I’m approaching 5-6 hours sleep a night these days. At fir…
