Periodically I have been plagued with those nagging nocturnal leg cramps.
They get so bad that I have to get out of bad and stand on the offending leg
until the cramping ceases.
Two nights ago I barely slept at all due to those monsters occurring
just about every hour - and in BOTH legs simultaneously.
Mind you, I have a banana every morning with my breakfast smoothie,
and I have been drinking quinine, as I heard that that helped.
(Oh and I had also tried the old wive's tail of putting a bar of soap under my bed sheet!
I was desperate!!!)
So, bright and early yesterday morning I messaged my wise friend BJ Reed.
We've known eachother for years through the art quilt arena,
but we have also connected through
BJ is a Vegan and helps others along the Vegan path of life.
I knew she would have some answers for me.
She was on her way out the door,
but she kindly shared that she takes Triple Magnesium for leg cramps.
I did a little research and learned that magnesium can be found in
dark leafy greens, lentils, nuts, and more.
So, I quickly made up a wonderful cold lentil salad
nibbled on five almonds,
and steamed some spinach for dinner.
I'm happy to report that it did the trick!!!
I hope that this will help someone else out there in blog land,
because nocturnal leg cramps are no fun!
Thanks for popping by!
Peace to you and yours!
