Life Retreat’s Friday Weekly Round Up


In most cases, the old saying “you are what you eat” holds true. It could do some good to cut out a few of the cream sauces and pizzas.

In some cases, a diet containing more fruits, vegetables and whole, natural starches rather than a lot of protein could be your best bet. But, the key words here are “in some cases” and “could.” So, as you decide on making a dietary change for whatever reason, remember that what works for someone else may not work for you.

Here’s a wrap up of what you missed here at Life Retreat this week. Enjoy your weekend!
