I do like a warm meal. No matter how tired, I did manage a minute or two in the microwave. When I am doing 80-90% raw, I enjoy my soups a little warm but don't need them hot. Of course, I haven't gone more than a few days. I am off the week of July 4 and am hoping to get batches of things made every other day to help me along.

I usually crave salt and crunch. Those nacho chips sound divine!

Thanks for the post.

Interesting article. I love finding healthier ways to satisfy my crazy cravings. Like really flavorful dehydrator flax-seed crackers instead of tortilla chips.

I had the most incredible "nacho chips" at Chakra 4 (raw cafe in Phoenix) made with raw-cashew/nutritional yeast "cheese" and raw nori. They spread a thin layer of the "cheese" on the nori and dehydrated it. Those "chips" were wickedly delicious!

Haha! Yvonne - I am the same!! When I was eating SAD, I had no qualms about grabbing a slice of cold pizza for breakfast; and lunch was so hectic at work some days that I wouldn't get to take my food (soup, stew, stir fry, whatever) to the cafeteria to reheat it, and I would eat it cold at my desk. I just got used to this - so one night I made spaghetti for me and a roommate. To me, since the noodles were hot, I just dumped the sauce right on it from the jar in the fridge, thinking the noodles would warm it enough. Roomy came out going, "why is the sauce cold?" and had to pop it in the microwave *lol* It hadn't even crossed my mind that it was "odd" no not heat it up!!

As for missing hot foods, you can still warm them some - I like to think that it should be not so hot that I can't put my finger in it. If it's too hot for my finger, it's going to be too hot for my throat, etc. But I may put it in the dehydrator, or let it blend longer in the blender, or even put it on a very low heat on the stove if I'm trying to warm it from the fridge.

(I don't have the reference on me, but I read a study a while back about linking tea drinking to esophageal cancer. They looked at who was drinking tea, which kind, how much, when, etc, etc, etc. Turned out, the link? People who drank tea that was hotter - above about 120 degrees, if I remember correctly! It was, of course, only one study, but it did make me curious if there were other links. Hope to see more research on that some day!)

I guess I am fortunate in the sense that my schedule usually had me eating leftovers when I followed a SAD lifestyle. I would get home from work so late because my commutes used to be over an hour each way, that many times I didn't even bother to heat up my dinner but ate it right out of the fridge, not even microwaving it.

I never was one to like piping hot foods, soups especially so that is why I do so well with my Raw Soups.

Now I get to telecomute working from my home office but I still don't eat hot foods doing the Raw.

The hardest part for me is eating always cool or cold food. I miss hot or warm food

"One of the most common issues for people trying to eat more raw is dealing with cravings. Usually they are for cheese, bread, pasta, chocolate or potatoes, although they can be for other "favourite" foods which might come under the banner of comfort foods."
