I started on a health journey in December 2006. I had some health issues that I needed to deal with and in my quest for better health, came across the “raw foods diet”. I lost 30 lbs in 2007, then got lazy with the raw foods(I think it is the cold weather) but didn’t gain the weight back. I have since lost another 5 lbs so far in 2008 and can’t wait for the weather to warm up so I can start walking again! The main reason I got on here was to see if I could find a recipe for a “beet cheesecake”. I had a slice-it was yummy-at a seminar at Cousin’s Incredible Vitality in Chicago—my sister and I went there to hear Paul Nison speak. I highly recommend that live eatery! I wish that we had one around Cedar Rapids, IA!
