So for the past few days I have only had cravings for raw fruits. But because I had some ingredients lying around yesterday I decided to make a cooked meal. It didn't taste that great and I was not left with the same satisfaction that I experience after a fruit meal. Even thought I was technically 'full', I still wanted more cooked food, so I cooked a load more potatoes. I think I am now at that stage where I don't even care for cooked food very much, and the only time I'll crave it is if I start eating it in the first place. This is a great improvement and I'm very excited as before I always used to try going raw but would always want cooked food. A few months ago I asked for advice to help with cravings and switching to fully raw and a lot of people said that the key is to not restrict and to just go with what you want. This seemed weird to me as if I went with what I craved then I would always have one cooked meal a day. But now it makes sense! I have just gone with how I felt and suddenly I don't even desire cooked food. I guess for some people it just takes time.
My next thought was, if I do only want to eat raw fruit and veg, then how am I going to be able to keep within my means, then I realised that bananas are the answer; they are cheap, and they make a good meal. If I ever do get genuine cravings for cooked vegan food then I won't restrict myself. But right now I'm just happy that all I want is fruit!
