A taste of Gwinganna at home

Retreat style food can be simpler to create at home than you think.

Preparing delicious retreat style food starts with good produce and fresh organic ingredients that speak for themselves in flavour and texture. Play with this and see what you enjoy best and bring simple dishes to life by using more fresh herbs, good quality salt (Himalayan or Celtic Sea Salt) and good quality healthy oils such as extra virgin, macadamia or coconut oil. Cook with love and the intention to nourish yourself and others and you’ll have a winning combination.

To make healthy food appealing to those who may not be used to it, smoothies can be a great place to begin. You can hide healthy ingredients such as coconut kefir yoghurt, avocado, wheatgrass, spirulina, kale and nuts easily, by adding blueberries, banana and coconut milk. The smoothie is delicious and full of nutrients, yet may not be enough to stimulate digestion so we suggest pouring the smoothie over granola as a healthy breakfast.
