Orange Scented Sweet Potato and Onion Soup
This month I’ve been working hard on a new program for my wellness coaching clients.  Over the last year I’ve met with many people one on one to work on their wellness goals, and to boost their quality of life.  It’s been a totally energizing and rewarding experience.  There’s nothing like seeing someone revitalized and ...
