Looking Ahead With Optimism and Anticipation Do you have a list of things you’d like to experience and accomplish in 2019?

Chef Del Sroufe, over-delivered in his special class for Wellness Forum Health Portland Vancouver where he shared his, “Plant Based Journey to Optimum Health”. He talked a lot about healthy eating and a healthy mindset while he made and served us 3 of his favorite plant-based “Summer Salads”. They were delicious! (If you want the
