Our food: concept and guidelines

We see the food we eat as the primary way of gaining and maintaining a healthy body and mind. Each ingredient forming a part of our recipes and our dishes ends up forming a part of our bodies.
In our kitchen, we use vegetarian, and to the biggest extent organic, local and seasonal ingredients. We avoid processed food in favor of ingredients that still have their natural properties intact. We will be primarily serving Indian food for the retreat as it uses the age old recipes of Ayurveda which includes usage of spices while cooking. Indian food is not only healthy but really tasty too. Ayurveda advocates cooked food as the best for human consumption as it is easy on the digestive system. The various spices used in the cooking of the food has tremendous medicinal properties.

We cook our food with maximum respect, to avoid destroying enzymes and nutrients. For this reason, we cook our food on slow heat, or a wok. We always keep the different macronutrients in mind, to create dishes and combining the ingredients that are easy on the digestive system and that will flood your system with live food. We follow the principals of Yoga and Ayurveda in our cooking. We believe you become what you eat, we believe let your food be thy medicine. As Ayurveda says “what’s the use of medicine if the food is right, what’s the use of medicine if the food is wrong”

Plant based & healthy food

In our retreat we exclude the following ingredients:

  • Refined sugar. Instead, we offer healthier options with a lower glycemic index (GI).

  • Margarine. We make our own nut butters of almonds and hazelnuts, following a recipe you can easily make yourself at home.
  • Processed/industrial products.
  • Fried and breaded food.
  • Meat, fish, cold-cuts and canned food.
