Gwinganna’s cuisine has become known for being creative, delicious and nutritious.
Our food philosophy centres around seasonal, local, organic wholefoods with much of the produce harvested daily from our extensive onsite gardens.
Menus vary with each program and are designed in conjunction with our nutritionist. Gluten free and dairy free, the aim is to help support and improve digestion and liver detoxification, reduce inflammation, improve gut bacteria and balance blood sugar levels.
Ingredients focus on low human intervention (LHI) where the food has undergone minimal or no changes from its place in nature to create an ideal balance between macro and micronutrients. This allows your body’s biochemistry to convert food into what it needs for optimum health and prevention of major lifestyle diseases.
We encourage you to eat mindfully, which means to slow down, be in the moment and be truly aware of the food you are eating and the impact it has on your health and wellbeing.
Organic food has been shown in research to reduce our toxic load and typically has up to 80% more nutrients than conventionally grown produce.
By choosing organic when you shop you can help reduce the load on the environment and increase the health benefits of your food.
Look for colourful foods that are as close to their natural form with low human intervention (LHI). Aim for purple, red, yellow and green foods as these provide antioxidants that can help reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
