Eat

You are what you eat – and on retreat, food is of huge importance. Some creative holidays and relaxing retreats offer gourmet, indulgent treats, cakes, organic meat and wine during your holiday. Most wellness-focused retreats will as a matter of course only serve healthy, cleansing meals, usually vegetarian, sometimes perhaps some fish, and (usually) no alcohol. To help you sift through the rest, the vegan retreats we’ve hand-picked here will serve mainly vegan meals, sometimes with vegetarian options, while the raw food retreats will serve mainly raw food meals, often as part of a detox. If you’d like classes or one to one consultations in nutrition, take a look at the healthy eating retreats, while you’ll find retreats that offer cookery demonstrations or classes listed as healthy cooking retreats. Tuck in.
