Epicurious editor Siobhan Adcock recently wrote about indulging in Midnight Munchies and many moons ago I blogged about late night baking, but what if this all were to happen while sleeping? Or in technical terms, while sleep walking?
This actually happened to a friend of mine. She began taking a sleeping pill to help deal with her insomnia, but instead of sleeping she would wake up to find that dinner leftovers or her favorite granola had suddenly gone missing. She was convinced that that her roommate was nibbling away at her food supply. And not only were her rations vanishing, but friends of hers, some of whom she had not spoken to in years, were responding to messages and emails she'd sent them on Facebook; messages she didn't remember ever writing. Her disappearing food, weight gain, and online popularity finally made sense when her roommate saw her sleep-eating one night.
Anecdotally, food can certainly affect a person's dreams, but has it ever caused you to sleep walk?
