Phew, 2016!

Phew, 2016 - you´ve been a year of growth for so many of us! Appreciating the opportunity to become more resilient and hopefully more graceful with time and energy, stronger and clearer! For us at Changing the Menu HQ, we´ve been so lucky to connect with so many of you, in real life in Norway and the UK, as well as online all over the world. Thank you so so much for all of your support, we are cooking up some treats for you in the new year to come! In the meantime, we want to say thank you for all your good energy and for being so generous with it. Thank you for being you. And for connecting with us. Appreciate every single one of you. Much love and sweetness to you as we transition to 2017! May it be beautiful, nourishing and healing for us all!
