I am 90 to 100% raw and vegan (most of the time). Once in a while I eat a cooked or non vegan food. Ex. almond butter, sushi or sashimi with brown rice, or unpasteurized tofu. On my birthday, I am going to an organic vegan restaurant that I love and I will be having the lasagna. I don't feel guilty because I feel good about my foundation and my staple foods. My body does well with simple raw recipes like kale, avocados, bananas, green juices, green smoothies, and nuts by themselves. Sometimes when I go to a raw food restaurant and eat something too heavy it literally does not want to go down and I feel extremely nauseous and sick for hours. Processed cooked foods make me sick as well and meat weighs me down which is why I turned to Raw. I am trying to listen to my body and figure out what is best for me. Is this kind of raw eating and "cheating" common among the raw community. If so, what kind of foods are best to "cheat" with. I really don't have any friends who are raw so I have no one to compare notes with which is why I am turning to this forum.
Also, any raw foodists in NYC??
