This morning while making some potatoes for my husband, yes boiled, it was a little juice left over in the skillet with a few potatoe bits at the bottom.
I had some chopped up celery, red peppers and sweet onions left from last night and i chopped up a little bit of avocado and added the potato juice over it, it was so good.
Now my husband have a very physical job and he says eating raw leaves him so empty so sometimes i will add a little something cooked, the last time i prepared potatoes for him was 3 months ago.
Has anyone else ever slipped and ate something cooked?

I wouldn't say "slipped" if I eat something cooked. But then I am still not 100% raw. I prefer to concentrate on eating more raw food. Some days I am 100%. Some days not. Doesn't seem to make a difference in how I feel.

that's me, eating cooked here and there, just a bite, maybe some bottled salad dressing, then a bite off a friends dinner, then a baked potatoe, it is an endless spiral with me, until I hit bottom.
Lucking for me, bottom is one baked potatoe, instead of 6 months of veggie burgers and milk shakes, UGH!!!
I am still detoxing from that one potatoe a few days ago, and it will pass, but I'm not feeling the best in my life.
I LOVE that empty feeling, it makes me feel light and happy, I love not being too hungry on raw either, when I ate cooked, I had stomache aches when I got hungry, real pain, now that never happens, unless I eat some cooked.
Now, I just LIKE to eat, can fast all day if I'm busy, and often do.
But it's not this desperate need to fill myself up anymore.
it's more like, humm, a nice fresh juicy pear sounds good, then I eat it, and keep going.
You might try adding some more fats into his diet, like avocados, more nuts, coconut is my favorite, I eat quite a bit of that, and maybe some heavier warmed soups, or smoothies with coconut butter, nut butters on fresh veggies,
I use nut butters in my sauces, they taste divine, thicken the sauces, and add so much flavor. you may wish to try that
In my wraps, I always add a tablespoon of almond butter, just to kind of make them gooey and delicious. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Yeah, I've been having moments where I will go a week raw then eat something cooked. Especially if I cook for my boyfriend, because I still enjoy that very much. I like to taste the food I cook. It's kind of frustrating sometimes, because I have gone LONG periods before without eating cooked, and here I am going on and off. Most of my meals are raw...at least 95%. I just need to go full force, though. Because all of you who have gone a long time on completely raw know how amazing it feels. :)

Yesterday afterschool, I went to Burger King and got two veggie burgers and ate them both before I got home(in the car) :( I was having such a bad day, etc. I'm glad I did it, though, because I immediately felt STUFFED and BLOATED and I had this pain in my intestines area and now I just want to eat light and fresh fruit and green juices! mmmmm

In the words of Forrest Gump: "It Happens"
Just important not to be myself up and not to fall into the trap of thinking well I just messed it all up I should just eat whateva gross thing I can stuff in my mouth.
Best advise I was given "Take it one meal at a time"

:D I'm glad that having that taste of cooked food doesn't lead me to going off the deep end.
The more recipes i have to counteract the old food i use to love really helps.
You eat a certain way for so long your taste buds get use to that flavor and you have to retrain yourself how to eat healthy.
Having the potato juice with the raw veggies didn't have a negative effect but i haven't eaten anything else cooked today so i'm happy.

Last Monday, or Sunday night, I ate a chicken leg and a couple of necks. They had been sitting in the freezer since before I went raw. I'm pretty much back to normal now.

:) What a confession, you're the MAN!
And you made it back, that's great. I feel inspired to know that you can get up again and run on.
