06-18-2005, 09:43 PM
Hi Everyone~I'm Vanessa. I'm 30 and here to get healthy and STAY healthy! I have been married for two years and have a 9 1/2 month old son. I would also like my son to grow up raw/vegan and avoid the many health problems from eating poorly. My hisband is also trying to eat better. I have been raw for two weeks and just ordered Alissa's book last night on ebay. I learned about raw through Victoria Boutenko's book, 12 Steps and I also have the book her children wrote, Eating Without Heating. I have high blood pressure and diabetes in my family and both my paternal grandfather and father died or heart attacks. I don't want to spend my life taking meds and needing pills to feel healthy. Slowly, I am learning the ropes. I have lost 9 pounds since 6/4 when I started eating raw. It is great to be here and I wish everyone the best of luck and success as well as regained health. Someday, I too want to write a book about eating raw and the role it can play in longevity and health as well as teach raw food classes at the local library. :D

I grew up in Vermont! You go girl! I'm with you on the pill stuff. What an expense and waste of good healthy living. I've watched several family members suffer through a lot of physical things. It's what they eat. I'm convinced of it. My children are very healthy. They aren't 100% raw, but they eat home cooked foods. I try to avoid a lot of things that aren't good. Takes a lot longer to prepare than bringing home a box of food, but it sure is worth it when I see the sick tired people around me. We have a garden, too so I know what we're getting when we put it in our bodies. Happy adventure. There are alot of books and info out there at the library. I know in VT you can be miles from one, but it's worth checking out.

Hi to you New Englanders!
One of mentioned gardening and just curious if any have info on cold framing (I think thats what you call it). I know hard to think of gardens when its snowy, windy, and 16 degrees...
Best wishes in your healthy journey.
