Following on the success of their first 'vegan venture', Debbie and Sascha are offering an updated version. We are all in need of paying close attention to our health, especially now. This retreat is ideal for those who want to make the change-over to a plant-based, wholesome and healthy lifestyle. Learn how to make nutritious superfood treats and vegan ice creams that are bursting with flavour and one hundred percent healthy, coconut condensed milk and a delicious chocolate cake. Debbie will demonstrate all the assorted vegan ‘milk’ options, ultimate dressing for any salads and a summer soup rich with flavour. She will also share her confidential “guilt free” chocolate recipe and variations of this. If you want to learn about wholefoods and veganism, this is an opportunity to find the 'creative foodie' in you. Included in this retreat will be sunrise yoga and meditation as well as pilates, the yin-yang of health, where "belly strengthening is a perfect balance to belly-nourishing". A "sound bath" meditative experience will also be offered using healing instruments such as gongs, singing bowls, percussion, chimes, rattles, tuning forks and chanting.
