Hi all, I've recently come back to 100% raw after staying high raw for most of the summer & earlier fall. I also just began following 811 a little over a week ago and love it so far. However it's getting seriously cold here in NYC and I've found myself freezing to death to the point where I have to take multiple showers a day, run hot water over my hands every time I pass the bathroom, etc. I'm not a huge fan of tea/don't have a kettle, but I am a huge fan of lightly steamed veggies, especially sweet potatoes. I'm wondering if you think it eating sweet potatoes, broccoli or cauliflower that's been steamed (plain) every other day in the evening will hinder me. I'm doing 811 mainly for athletic purposes- I'm a distance runner and want to get faster to qualify for Boston. I'd love any insight you might have about your experiences eating some cooked veggies to keep warm!
In the past I was living in LA so it wasn't as cold, and I turned to "raw" cacao that probably wasn't raw, Lara Bars that weren't all raw, and high fat foods like nuts and lots of avocadoes when I was cold. I think my body would do better sticking to low fat even if it's cooked veggies. Right?? I know it's not ideal, but neither is humans living in cold climates :-p
