Cookbook on Lulu.Com Feeds the Soul and Whets the Appetite

RALEIGH, N.C., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- When running was no longer enough, this weight-loss support group turned relay team, wondered what their next way to raise funds for breast cancer research would be. Maria Fernandez and the members of TeamGDT thought not everyone runs, but everyone eats; their new cookbook, "Eat for the Cure", was a great answer to not only raise awareness but to touch the lives of those that have been affected by breast cancer.

While training for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure the team, now 60 members strong, collected the recipes they traded when they were trying to help each other lose weight. It wasn't until one of the support group's members announced that she'd been diagnosed with breast cancer that finding another way to fundraise and educate those about research became a top priority. "When you're trying to lose weight, food is a major topic of conversation. As we began our mission to help the Komen Foundation, turning the many recipes we shared throughout the years on our message board, it just seemed natural for this to be our next project to honor those in the group and in our lives," says author and charter team member Maria Fernandez.

The recipes and the creation of "Eat for the Cure" were submitted not only by the members of TeamGDT, but also by the larger online community. These original recipes were handed down family traditions or created by team members. Designs for the book were provided by team members as well. "This collection was submitted by an amazing group of women and reflects the diversity of people that have been affected by this plight," says Fernandez.

After Fernandez started work on the cookbook, she was referred to by another TeamGDT member. "To see my dream realized, I couldn't help but be proud; not only of what I've done, but the tireless work of those who helped me bring it to fruition," she said.

"Eat for the Cure" ( is a great example of a new way to raise not only awareness but funds for your charity of choice. "Eat for the Cure" is available for download or purchase. All proceeds go to the Komen Foundation, and Fernandez says of the cookbook, "This is our way of giving back."
