06-13-2009, 08:35 PM
so this week i stubbed my raw toe. (ate cooked food) but im curious, when you guys stub your raw toes, do you go all the way back? i have realized when i do it, i still eat strict vegan. no meat dairy eggs etc etc. its cooked yes, but still vegan.
do you guys eat meat when you slip? i just cant do it. it grosses me out. especially Milk. i havnt drank milk in years and now have the same "issues" with meat.

No, pick it up right where you left off. If you have any addictive junk/cooked food near you flush it gone and make your very next bite raw.
do you guys eat meat when you slip?
No, my cravings are for baked potatoes, and fried rice with veggies. My slips have never been about meat.

Hi EZ, sorry that wasnt very clear, what i meant was, when you do slip, for that meal do you go all the way back to omni? i didnt mean chuck it all for an extended period.
like i slip for a meal, not a day or more. its one meal. and i slip back to cooked vegan not all the way back to sad/omni. *shudder*
but thanks for your reply!

ALL food coming out of my place is raw/living vegan. When dining out with friends, I order whatever sounds fabulous (most often salads or taboulli!) but will omni at times. (almost afraid to use the M word here!) I don't beat myself up about it because the majority is raw and I feel great! If only my food could do my homework for me ;)

My cravings are mostly for cooked grain products like brown rice, beans, humus, falafels, ect. The only exception is spicy tuna rolls (used to be my favorite sushi roll). When I stub my "raw toe" it's usually because of the aroma these foods create, and because I did not eat enough that day.

Honestly, when I do slip up I occasionally eat fish (I know, I know, bad) but everything else is still vegan. My tastes are definitely beginning to change though.

We have been raw only a few weeks. (Though I've been trying to get here for several years.)
Vegan for 2.5 years. (The first 3 months starting Vegan we ate some cheese substitute that we were told was Vegan, and other times we just ate the cheese-toppings on things; didn't totally give up cheese until we all read The China Study. None since then!)
And we will never go back to meat or dairy. Also very helpful is the Eating Plus movie at http://www.ravediet.com . It's not raw though it is "no refined" and Vegan. But it's a powerful movie. You can see a trailer there at the website. A bunch of people I know were saying, "I'm going to go right back to animal products, I can't imagine living like this," that was prior to watching the movie -- the next day, they were just as adamant about not eating meat. Every now and then, we make a point of watching the first part of that movie (about health reasons to change your diet) to stiffen our resolve. The second part of the movie -- well, you only have to watch it once. ("Additional reasons.")

the China Study totally "shored up" my ideals when i read it!
i bought that book for someone i love who had cancer before and she still eats a very meat heavy diet. its like, i had to. at least she HAS the information and can maker her choice.

Hi, Matthew. Yes, I've thought of buying The China Study book for those who need it. But one of the problems the author brings up right in the beginning is that nutritional info has been SO confusing for SO long, people have just learned to disregard what anyone tells them. And the book (I think) takes too many steps at once for many. Most of us have to start where we are, and move one step at a time forward. Even when I do believe the data, making such a change and giving up the foods for something new is so hard! It's taken a long time to get to where I am today, and I look back and say to myself WHY did I take so long? Even when there were "no-brainers" that I thoroughly believed we should change, I took a long time to act on them. It's hard to focus and prioritize.
