I’ve been doing so much work lately prepping and getting all the info ready for the retreat in May, and in compiling all the info for them to be taking home, I stopped to think about what my top 5 foods would be that I couldn’t live without (well I could still live in a sense but I wouldn’t want to do without them) – my basic every day healthy support system.
