A Raw Plant-based Diet on Holiday
Whether you are just curious about a Raw Food lifestyle or are already a committed Raw Foodie, come and enjoy a raw food and yoga holiday making and eating delicious, nutritious, energizing, revitalizing Raw Food.
This raw food and yoga holiday workshop is a “Hands-On / Get-Creative / How-To-Make-Delicious-Raw-Food-In-Real- Time/With-Whatever-Food-You-Have-In-Your-Kitchen, Fridge or Garden.”
You will soon acquire an intuitive feel for which foods go together so you can make appetizing dishes quickly from whatever is available.
Eating Raw is its Own Reward
The more raw food you eat the better you feel and the easier it is to recognise the debilitating effects of eating cooked/processed food.
You are then in a position to consciously choose between Raw=Alkali=Energy versus Cooked=Acidic=Lethargy.
Even if “All Raw” is too daunting a prospect, “More Raw” is definitely better than “Low Raw” or “No Raw”.
By upping your intake of raw foods at each meal to over 51% you avoid straining your immune system, because the body reacts to cooked/canned & processed foods as invaders. This can trigger an increase in white blood cells (leukocytosis). Contraiwise, raw foods come packed with enzymes (which are destroyed by cooking) to aid their digestion.
Give it a go with this raw food and yoga holiday!
Eating raw food can be as simple or as complicated as you want to make it and this raw food and yoga holiday is designed to show you how to do it.
If you love following recipes there are websites and books galore on raw food diets.
Food preparation does not necessarily require any specialist equipment. Usually the main thing holding anyone back from trying a raw food diet is simply getting started.
The two weeks of Raw Food and Yoga holiday at Kalikalos are an easy enjoyable introduction to eating raw in a warm sunny climate away from all the stresses and temptations that may have prevented you from ever trying it. Even after a short period eating raw you can feel how life could (and should?) be. Once you have experienced the increase in energy, clarity and general health, you will have an incentive to kick the cooked food habit.
The Satyananda yoga that Hara will offer is best described as restorative yoga. This is a type of hatha Yoga which relaxes and exercises in a gentle way the whole body. All parts of the body are included in each session. There is a focus on breath and inviting awareness to go deep into the body.
The advantages of this Yoga is that the exercise is very gentle with little or no effort. There is a healing effect, pain sometimes disappears after a session. The regeneration of the body, mind and emotions is accompanied by a pleasant feeling of lightness and relaxation.
In the mornings Hara will offer Yoga, Breathwork and Mindfulness, after lunch is beach/ free time and the early evening is spent preparing a raw supper. There are plenty of other opportunities to help with the raw food: making breakfast, preparing crackers to dehydrate in the sun, foraging for free/wild food and so on. However, only if you want to — you are on holiday!
