Tennessee Retreat - Raw Food

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to make raw food for 24 people who had come to do a 12 day cleanse at my favorite and most divine retreat center in Tennessee. Diann and Adam invited me to make food for their retreat and what a wonderful whirlwind of delicious food and endless kitchen hours! I was blessed with three beautiful assistants Jessie and Amanda, two retreat interns, and my most beloved assistant Arix made the trip to Tennessee! There wasn't much down time, one late-night trip to the hot-tub, and one delightful hike out to the waterfall for a cool swim and some time by the river. I was inspired by the entire experience, and have a burning desire to know more about the nutrition aspect of raw food...plans begin for the next adventure:)

The images below are of some of the offerings at the facility...Diann and Adam have done a beautiful job growing this center.

My sleeping beauty...he's going to love this!

I have rallied some of the cleansing participants for a late night food demo and some assistance with breakfast! Fun! A little non-traditional but Ive always had a little trouble following the rules.

Jeff made a wonderful meal for us Friday evening...
