Here is an overview of meal options for the Forest Healing Retreat Bed and Breakfast. The main dishes are vegan with the choices of dairy, eggs and occasional fish, poultry and meat on the side. As much as possible we keep the ingredients local, organic and seasonal.
The best part is that the food is utterly delicious. We have been feeding people healthy meals for years with delighted feedback. Repeated comments are that people didn’t know how wonderful food could be without animal products and how good it makes them feel.
Breakfasts and lunches are included in the overnight cost; dinners are available if ordered ahead. We look forward to nourishing you—body, mind and soul!
