Yoga retreat food recipes that are easy to make and healthy win hearts every time.
At the Isle of Yoga, we have built up a catalogue of winners, and now we will share some with you. We think mealtimes during the retreat are very special. Hearing a table full of people laughing and being happy is a good end to a day of yoga.
During the prolonged yoga practice times that you often do on a yoga retreat, we get hungry. So the body craves healthy food. We have found that an alkaline diet is a perfect one for this. What is an Alkaline Diet, you ask? It is based on the idea that the foods you eat can alter your body’s acidity or alkalinity (the pH value).
Yoga Retreat food we consider as Alkaline are often so easy to make. Quick to prepare and keep fresh. Students appreciate the idea behind an alkaline diet, as they are looking after their health by doing yoga. So it follows to look your diet too.
A favourite recipe that’s bursting with alkalising properties and an absolute favourite at the Isle of Yoga is Sweet potatoes, quinoa and chickpea stew. Served warm with brown rice. Served cold with watercress salad.
