Hello all!<br><br>
I found out this morning, that a dear friend died on the first. This has made me crave everything un-raw vegan. Chili dogs, philly cheese steak, cheese and crackers, jack in the box, etc.... Food is fuel, not a drug but I have to remind myself of that. This is really making my vegan transition hard. Just had to vent that. If this isn't in the right thread, mods, please feel free to move it to the correct one. Thanks for listening.

It sounds like you want "comfort food." I think for a lot of people raw foods are not comfort foods. I don't know your reasons for going raw, but MY reason for being raw would be about personal health, and my reason for being vegan is for the health of animals. In that case I might take a break from being a raw vegan and just be a regular vegan for a bit, because you can get passable comfort foods in the cooked vegan versions.<br><br>
ETA, if you're looking for support for being raw, maybe post in raw section. I personally don't think it's a big deal to stay raw, but I do think it's a big deal to stay vegan, so that's where I'm coming from. Sometimes too much of a change, if you can't find something within it that is satisfying, can make people dump the whole thing.

Staying vegan is what I am focusing on right now. Vegan for me and the planet. Being "high raw" is better than eating a cheeseburger! When I get home from work, I am going to make a Soyrizo and tofu scramble with some nutritional yeast as a cheese sub. Comfort food is exactly what I am seeking. Thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. I had a day very recently (<a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/newvb/showthread.php?131751-Just-spent-a-stupid-amount-of-money-at-Whole-Foods" target="_blank">thread</a>) where I was really in need of some comfort food and really wasn't interested in the healthy vegan food I had in the house. So I went off to Whole Foods and bought a bunch of vegan comfort food. It was definitely junk food, but at least it was vegan junk food. And it got me through the cravings. After a couple of days, I went back to eating normally.

Sorry for your loss . Also agree with everyone else. Just veganize all the stuff you are craving at the moment. Cruelty free and also way better than the non vegan versions.

FWIW, you can make a chili dog out of vegan ingredients... chili made with crumbles, vegan dog, etc.<br><br>
Maybe you could look up some comfort food recipes veganized?
