Do any of you 100% long time( over a year or so) rawbies ever have a bite of non raw cooked food or chocolate occasionally? Occassionally meaning every couple of months or so??? Or when you say 100%, you mean 100%??? Just curious.

No, because I have found eating any cooked food to be a step out onto the slippery slope that can cause me to loose my footing and fall on my butt. I yielded to social situations a couple of times in the past and each time found myself wobbling for the next couple of days. My conclusion is that for me its best and easiest not to step out on that slippery slope. I don't want to risk the health gains I have experienced so I stay 100% all fresh raw for every bite. No exceptions.

I have, but it only leads to feeling awful, gaining weight, breaking out, and binging.
I eat raw cacao though and make chocolate goodies occasionally when I feel the need and have no adverse reactions. Have you tried raw chocolate? It's great! :)

Hi, I NEVER have anything that is not raw, EVER. For me, it is soooo much easier to be 100% raw because the other way would take willpower. I would just find myself reasoning with "Ok, what's one more bite, Ok, I'll just have this little piece and start tomorrow" I can't do it that way. This way is so much easier. There are clear boundaries. I do have a problem eating too much raw food though. Way to much nuts cause they are "legal" . I'm working on it though.

No.....and I've been all-raw for perhaps 8 years. It's all about one's personal goals. A desire for health and healthy-eating is not enough. If you have exciting life goals / joys / passions that REQUIRE healthy eating....as a NECESSARY and foundational tool....then it becomes a no-brainer.
Note: It is OK (in my opinion) to eat ANYTHING if you are doing it CONSCIOUSLY. If one is making the highest decision possible....and you decide cooked foods are it......then more power to you! :)

Thanks everyone for your responses. I was just curious as to what other people felt/did. I personally don't think I could at this time either without going back to square one. Maybe in the farrrrrrrrrr future I might be able to???? Who knows, but right now NO!
Rawmommie, I have tried the raw chocolate. I love it ! And it is because of these raw chocolate treats that I made it through the first couple of days this time around. A few years ago when I was 100% raw for close to a year I didn't know about raw foodist. Had never heard of them. Did it on my own at the suggestion of a Dr. to help heal my adrenals and thyroid. It was really difficul. I was just eatting the basics and probably not getting all the nutrients I need. Since then someone turned me on to the raw websites and let me tell you....it is so much easier this time around. I can see this as a life time change without having to give up anything. You see...I have a business that is making handmade truffles and chocolate is my down fall, but with my raw chocolate concotions to ease the cravings I have to say I don't crave my chocolate AT ALL!!! I don't make many of the recipes. I seem to prefer to eat simply. I do try recipes, because at times I have a taste for some sad foods and want a substitute, but other than that I just eat simple. I am in heaven now larrrrrrge watermelons aren't to expensive right now and We just love them!!!
when i was 100% raw if i felt an overwhelming desire to eat something not optimal i would take a bite, chew it up, then spit it out. i did this with chocolate a couple of times and by the time i had chewed it and spit it out the taste had changed into something very undesirable and the after taste was just gross.
