Hello. I recently moved to WPB from the Homestead/Miami, FL area. We just moved to a little "farmette" where I live with my husband, 3 dogs, and 2 horses. I'm addicted to dachshunds, horses, and coffee , and working on getting over that last one. I've tried going raw a few times and I know that this is the time that will stick. The first time I asked for that book by the 2 sexy new yorkers for Christmas, and I got it and tried making some sprouted hummus and threw it all up (sorry for being gross!!) and said NO WAY to raw foods. Then for my bday in August my DH gave me Carol Alt's book and it reinspired. I also ordered Alyssa's book and DVD, and figured out that I could just throw the other books away (not that I did but might as well have) because Alyssa's stuff RAWKS and blows the others right out of the water. I went raw for about a month and lost a lot of weight, but then I slipped up at a conference in Mexico and didn't go back to raw when I got back. Now I'm starting up again. I find the key is to make a BUNCH of recipes from Alyssa's book, so that there is always something in the fridge to grab that is both raw and tasty whenever I get hungry.
