I am working on an article about eating high raw diets and I would love get some input from those who have decided to be mostly raw, but not 100%. I am looking to find out your reasoning/logic in this decision.
So here is my question…
If the premise of Raw Food is that, ‘food eaten Raw is better for us than cooked food’ then what is the reason for eating ‘some’ cooked food? (5%, 20%, 40% whatever)
1… I just can’t live without my old favorite BLANK?
2… I like cooked food and I don’t have to give it up completely to be healthy?
3… 80% raw keeps me so healthy that I can eat cooked food and still be ok?
4… I’m afraid that without some cooked food I won’t get enough BLANK ?
5… Making all my own food is too time consuming and not convenient?
6… Raw Food is really not that much better than cooked food so it doesn’t matter?
7… Raw Food only is more nutritious. Cooked food is not bad for our health?
8… I need the warmth, comfort or feeling of fullness that only cooked food can offer?
9… Insert you own answer here…
Of course I am not talking about those who are in a transition period. I am asking those who have settled in to a diet of mostly raw, yet some cooked food and have decided to stay at that level.
I am really trying to get a handle on the logic behind mostly raw/some cooked. Any input anyone has would be great.
