So I have just been put on an all raw foods diet by my heart Doctor. For those of you who don't know me, I have a heart condition called Peripartum Cardiomyopathy. It happens after you have a baby... crazy. The medications haven't helped pull up my low EF rate, so we are now trying food. Anyhoo.... I am a healthy..hmmm... I can't believe I am about to tell all of you my weight, (breathe) Go close the door first and dim your computer monitors. Ok. I weigh... 156. AHHHH. I said it out loud! So it's not that I am HUGE and needing to loose weight, the Dr. is just trying to help my heart (along with several fun medications, that aren't really fun at all)

So... I am going to try to cook the same old Barb way for the family, and will be making myself tasty food (NOT!). So you will get a two for one deal on Barbbakes. A vegan, non cooked meal (not by choice :) and a regular 'wish I could eat' meal.

Tons of fun!

Please... if you know any recipes that use fresh fruits and veggies that is NOT cooked please let me know. This is only temporary (that is the only thing that got me to stop crying!)

thanks friends!
