View Full Version : Seedling from Chicago
11-13-2005, 08:11 PM
I should say barely a seedling who just moved to Chicago. I am 46, overweight and just ripe for health problems although I feel healthy as a horse. I want to stop cooking my food and start eating totally raw. I have a 5 yr old son who needs me and I want to be around for him.

Glad to have a new raw neighbor...
I'm in the Chicago suburbs & going on about 1 year (off & on) raw.
No kids but planning on sticking around a long & healthy time for my family, too!
You've found a great forum here. You're on the right path w/ raw & if you need support you're bound to get it...
Good luck & we'll see you around the site!
PM me if you want to chat!

Check out the "where do you live..." post in the living food discussion section. There is a bunch of Chicago folks & they are planning field trip to Karyn's (a raw food restaurant in Chciago) for November 22nd! :p

Hi Msmia and Tombi!
Also, please try out the rawfoodmeetup group. It is a group of chicago people who are partial to fully raw. There are events and meetups. There are raw potlucks in the burbs and city. You can even meet Mehmet Ak, who I spoke of in the "where do you live" thread. To visit The Chicago Raw Food Meetup Group, go here:
You can PM me if you need anymore info. Welcome!
So glad to hear there's more people here in the Chicago area! There's also a meetup group in the suburbs, although the Chicago group is bigger, but I'm working on that!
Are any of you in the suburbs? I'm in Elgin, and the suburban raw food meet-up will be meeting next month in St Charles at Sweet Tomatoes.
Anyway, welcome Tombi :D
