So I went on my first vacation (not including the Raw Spirit Fest last Oct) since going raw. We went to Florida (Miami and then the Keys). And I thought I’d have more choices for finding restaurants than I do in my little western Nebraska town. But I’ve got to tell you, it was just as hard in Florida as it is in Nebraska. So, for the first time since going raw (nearly a year) I ate cooked vegan food. And it made me sick. And it made my joints from the rheumatoid arthritis hurt again. But it’s not like I ate a ton of bad food. Just some cooked vegan. Maybe a tiny bit of cheese that didn’t get picked off. But I did drink. I just couldn’t go to Key West and not have a margarita, oh, and rum runners (yum – but too sweet). Now I didn’t get drunk every night, just a drink here and there, well, except for our last night I did have more than one. Anyway, I’m sitting here in the airport and I can’t wait to get home and eat my own food again. And feel better again.
But I’m worried that now that I’ve had cooked vegan food it will be easier for me to cheat again. Has anyone else had a similar problem?
