Hundreds leaned forward as they watched presenter Charmaine Vierra whip up a tasty chia tapioca right in front of their eyes.

Children's eyes widened at the thought of a dessert, and their parents and other audience members realized that the "raw" treat was something the entire family could enjoy.

Vierra was one of seven presenters slated to address audience members this weekend on how a healthy lifestyle can go hand-in-hand with biblical teachings.

Presentations this Saturday and Sunday will range from Bible passages pointing readers in the right direction for a happy, healthy life to discussions on how balancing body chemicals can prevent disease — a technique known as the alkaline lifestyle.

On Friday, presentations included a live food demonstration on how to make "raw" meals.

The forum, called the Health and Healing Crusade, began Friday around 1 p.m.

It will last through Sunday at 1 p.m. The forum is located at 413 E. Lockeford St. at the Lodi Grape Festival Grounds.

Admission is free, and vegan meals are provided. Camping is also free, unless you wish to camp in an RV, which will cost $25 per night.

For more information on the forum, please visit www.modernmanna.org.
