I am a recovering “dirty vegan” with over 10 years or raw food and juice detoxing experience
After being diagnosed with PCOS, like most folks I followed the doctor’s orders and flew to the pharmacist for the quick fix…
…the thought of an even healthier diet made sense, but finding tons of tasty options was always tough
…plus I figured my “dirty vegan” diet of mock meats and packaged pastas was good enough…
but I was wrong.
After many years my symptoms were still there, along with extra weight and the fear that PCOS would ruin my life
It was only until I replaced the fake food with REAL FOOD was I able to reverse my symptoms, drop the weight and experience my body in a way I never had (like smoother skin + satisfying sleep)
Other habits that have helped me (that you can do TODAY wherever you are, retreat at home!)
BREATHE….deeply for an energy boost throughout the day
BALANCE…because flavor is just as important as function
CHEW…because if you don’t, all the good stuff just passes through
Ever since I figured it out I’ve been developing as many techniques as I can while collecting tips from the countless others who’ve had similar results.
I’ve created this retreat to share what I’ve learned and inspire you to do the same.
Retreat to the tropics!
Join me and other foodies for a week on the beach with a retreat of your choice:
green juice fast
coconut water fast
raw + living food feast
or a combination of everything!
The week includes 4 days of workshops that teach you the techniques of sprouting, fermenting, dehydrating, marinating and seasoning plant based meals. Plus the program includes daily yoga, meditation, workshops, discussions and films.
You will learn
the truth (and the lies) about being “100% raw”
the do’s and don’ts of flavoring raw food
balancing your healthy food with not so healthy food
the easiest way to sprout beans, nuts and seeds
which appliances you really need, and the ones you don’t
tips on meal prep, travel, entertaining as well as budget and family friendly ideas
what to do before, during and after a fast
It’s all about #balance
Unfortunately, many retreats don’t put food first which usually leaves the menu to the same old salads, egg whites and salmon filets and other “halfway healthy foods” that you can easily get back home.
On the other hand, some retreats can be seen as extreme, even for me sometimes. Despite the incredible results, the strict menu of “medicinal raw” is often a better match for food addictions, disease recovery or major weight loss.
Our retreat provides a balance of both to give you the information, inspiration and motivation to meet you wherever you are on your journey for years to come.
If inspiration, motivation and healing sounds appealing then this retreat is for you!
