Good morning,

Happy October! Here in New England, USA, the fall foliage is starting to gain steam and the maple trees always surprise me with how vibrant their colors can be. Awe-some and awe-inspiring!

One thing that you can be sure of, is that at Retreat, it?s FOOD SASS? all they way, baby! In fact, the first night my guests will be greeted by a delicious, nutritious dinner waiting for them, that incorporates one of my most popular soup recipes. This recipe is like?Food Sass? ROYALTY!

And, since the thousands of folks that are part of this Create Vibrant Health? community cannot possibly all fit at the retreat center, I?m going to hook you up with that fantabulous recipe!
