So far I'm succeeding in not eating any cooked carbs and thus avoiding the major pitfalls of the cooked diet: addiction, mucus, and body odor.
Let's talk about addiction. Perhaps it's the wrong word. Perhaps the right thing to say is that cooked food excited me. Cooked food is an adventure. Cooked food is a buffet of drugs. There are so many options! (not really) But it is exciting! The idea of spices and oily carbs with salt is an evolutionary dream :P and on a daily basis I'd have the option to pick between whichever food I want be it tasty refried bean tacos which I'd make from these great new tortillas, fresh lettuce and tomatoes, refried beans, and mixing salsa with avocado. Yum. For real yum and easy to get plenty of calories in which I love. It's always a plus to be able to knock out 2000 calories in one sitting in my book.
See that's a big difference between myself and another health food bloggers is that I am pro-nutrition. I am pro-getting-more-nutrition-in-you. Why?
Because if they're the right foods, more calories should mean more fuel which means more energy to do more. I ran a marathon on this principle. Simply increased my fuel, allowed myself to eat as I wished, allowed myself to sleep as I pleased, and found myself running long distance with ease. It is there where choice of food matters greatly, because pizza does not inspire movement. Potatoes do not inspire movement. Eggs, fish, bread, cheese, beef... do not inspire movement.
Fruit inspires movement. Foods that digest well inspire movement. Vegetables like celery have a deeply nourishing healing feeling upon their consumption and recharge the body with electrolytes. Being HYDRATED inspires movement. Being dehydrated does not.
Cooked food dehydrates in a difficult way because drinking water doesn't really seem to fit well with it.
Anyhow, I wanted to say that I'm glad to have freed up a great deal of time. Well maybe part of me is not. I love eating food and preparing it and buying it. Eating a fruit based diet really simplifies that and sometimes in a way does not allow food to act as an allopathic medicine. What I mean is that, previously I could feel lonely and fill up my loneliness with say cheese. Bleh I don't feel like writing anymore about this. Hah Well okay fine. Here's an idea: why not consider removing wheat, rice, and corn from your diet. It's not like these are actually wonderful foods. They're not appropriate foundations of human diet if they can be avoided but how can you remove them? You need another foundation of your "food pyramid" you need.... FRUIT.
Please comment if this was helpful or interesting or if you really think I ought to edit this. I want to make this very useful to people and inspire change

As I mentioned in my first post, this blog is for those who leave home in search of adventure. A large chunk of the "adventure" category includes those who desire to escape the urban jungle for peace and quiet in the great outdoors.
I absolutely love to backpack. Give me a lightweight pack, throw in a warm sleeping bag, small tarp, and a few pounds of food, and I'm ready to test my metal against the unknown variables of Mother Nature. I've done weekend trips through Kentucky, a week long excursion in the Boundary Waters, and a week long trip through the Adirondacks. Every time I've "escaped", it's been difficult to come back.
But I digress. As much as I'd love to talk about all my adventures, it's much more practical to give some solid advice that YOU all can use immediately.
So without further ado, I present my Definitive Guide to Backpacking Nutrition:
