Part of the challenge of overcoming cooked food addiction is getting past adding lots of flavoring to foods that you wouldn't normally eat by themselves.
cooked food is not an addiction. Our species evolved to eat our food cooked and you can't become another species by fiat. Saying cooked food is an addiction is like saying we are addicted to water.
