Do you have an idea of what the cookbook will contain? I know you said about 500 recipies, would any of those be "high protein" or PE diet related recipe ideas? Would you consider a section of ideas for "Bedrest Buddies"? Just a thought to list out in a section ideas of how NOT to go crazy while on bedrest seeing reading would be the ultimate pasttime for someone on bedrest anyway, why not read the cookbook for ideas on sanity? I would assume you are including a page with the PF homebase address and where to donate more funds should they opt to do so? Have you offered, for an idea on funds, to have Peris or MFMs donate a little bit of cash and have their Offices listed in the back as a "sponsor" idea? Maybe each state could offer up a doctor who would agree to donate a little bit of money towards the project just to have their office listed in order to help? Just thinking off the top of my head and wasn't sure if you have already covered these ideas as I actually was thinking about a cookbook idea today myself and checked to see if anyone else had thought it up. I've only been involved in two such cookbook projects, one through church and another through girl scouts.

I could probably be able to get at least 5-10 starter and then look up more locations. I would be willing to buy a copy and donate it to my local library to have on hand. Just curious. :-) Great idea!

Thank you for your responses. As you might have guessed, the walk-a-thon is taking the lion's share of time and energy right now, and the cookbook is in limbo.

I will keep you posted when planning resumes. :)
