Okay, even I have to admit that my food has been too heavy on the prepared packaged raw snacks. It is what it is. For me it's better than eating cooked food but I know I need more fresh fruit and vegetables than I ate today. Isn't that what the raw life is about?
What I refer to as prepared packaged raw snacks work better for me than what some would consider a healthier cooked alternative for two reasons. First, mentally, eating raw, even if packaged raw snacks, is a line in the sand that I draw for myself. It's a line that I can keep in mind and do whatever it takes to not cross it. Second, cooked food opens up a Pandora's box with my tendency towards towards compulsive overeating. When eating cooked food I never feel sated and I eat until I physically can't hold anymore food. With raw food, my satiation mechanism kicks in and I rarely overeat on raw food -somehow I just stop eating, the appeal goes away.
