Our Founder Gets "Raw"

Hey Everyone!

I'm excited to add my first post on our new, and very much improved blog.  For those of you that don't know me, my name is Vaughan and I am the co-founder of this mothership we call Pizza Fusion.  I will be dropping by here on a more regular basis and appreciate you taking the time to read about our company which we're very proud of.

About 3 months ago I started training for my next marathon with several other friends and Pizza Fusion co-workers. We are proudly training while raising money and awareness for Autism Speaks, an amazing charity(more on them shortly).  We call ourselves the "Fusion Extreme Team" and work with coaches to get us prepared for the 26.2 miles that lie ahead on June 26th in Seattle.  To make a long story longer (you'll soon realize I have a problem making them shorter), I have decided to kick up my overall training regime up to a whole new level. You know... get serious and stuff.  My girlfriend and I have decided to do a 100% raw foods cleanse for 14 days while we transition into a new training program with both the running team and endurance coach.

I will use this stage to discuss the many challenges one may face while training for a marathon, as well as how difficult it can be to live a "raw" lifestyle.  I'm only into Day 2 and I can feel my body craving all of my vices like coffee and an occasional steak.  Yes, I am a conscious carnivore.  I will be sure to post the "before" pics very soon and hope I won't get too many comments on them.  I appreciate you following my progress and hope you enjoy what you read!

One woud think that just being healthy is the reason why we chose to do this.  The REAL reason is because there are children and adults that need our help in a fight to find a cure for Autism.  As I mentioned, we have set a lofty goal of $60,000 to raise for this amazing charity.  I know that this is a strange economic climate, but there is always something that we can each do to make a difference.  Please show your support by making a small donation to this great cause: http://www.active.com/donate/teamfusion_seattle09

Hey Vaughnanlazar!
I have been a fan of Pizza Fusion since they first opened the store in Ft Lauderdale FL.

This is great news, both the cause you are raising money for and the way you have decided to train, by going raw!

Have you considered Superfoods? There are amazing raw living organic foods that provide a huge range of nutrition in a small amount.
You may want to consider adding Marine Phytoplankton to your diet, which is considered to be pure energy! And perhaps maca powder, which has been reported to provide incredible stamina!!

Please visit www.eatsalive.com for more information about how to get these superfoods, even how to join the team and get them at wholesale prices!
Or email me directly at info@eatsalive.com
Blessings for success in your endeavors!
