Do you Love delicious, decadent but healthy world renown food?

You are either a foodie or will become one at Shunyata. The food is cooked with love and if you are on a detox you will eat healthy nutritious inspirational food to make you stay healthy and if doing a Journey retreat you will eat mostly yummy healthy food with naughty treats (and of course a 3 course romantic dinner for the couples). Paru lived many years in France and calls herself a hedonist - food is important here at Shunyata. Recently, she has gone sugar free and using the doterra oils can bring succulent deliciousness to everything we eat here.

One of my  passions is food and I never stop  updating new healthy, but delicious recipes.  Every winter I travel picking up new recipes that are clean, healthy but delicious.  I believe  in eating  local and mostly organic and don't  use preservatives, but keep food simple and home grown. I make my own dips, chutneys, salads and dishes from the garden and the local Lyttelton growers markets and will inspire you to go home and eat healthily with a possibility of securing many recipes. You could call it conscious cuisine where you feel nourished - food is love.

I now know what works for me from the ayurvedic perspective and will be implementing this eating plan at home as I felt so good with the delicious food you served Paru  this week and thanks for giving me the inspiration.
