Local and Seasonal Fare
A combined effort of The Capra’s Head Chef Eric Glauser and the Peak Health Nutrition team, the retreat menu focuses on simple, fresh, seasonal food. Dishes featuring locally and organically sourced foods are designed to balance and nourish from the inside-out. All of the meals are beautifully presented by Chef Eric and his team, and guests are encouraged to eat mindfully and appreciate making time to nourish themselves whilst enjoying the company of a supportive team of wellness experts and like-minded health seekers. At all Peak Health retreats, guests eat “family style,” a wonderful way to appreciate food while discussing the day with their companions. This allows guests to take time to pause and breathe between bites, which is beneficial for both their physical and mental wellbeing.
Fueling the body for optimal function
Guest will start the day with a breakfast based around blood-sugar-balancing proteins, fats, and low glycemic carbohydrates, providing energy for the morning hike without spiking blood sugar or insulin levels. We fuel your morning hike and day of activity with Peak Health’s signature dairy and gluten free Bircher, locally made spelt bread, and low GI fruit accompanied with alkalising green juice to kick-start the day.
We replenish glycogen stores during and immediately after our activities with a low glycemic, nourishing snack of complex carbohydrates, as well as fats and proteins that are readily absorbed by the body and the muscles.
Each lunch starts with a health boosting broth soup followed by a lean protein dish with seasonal vegetables, super foods, and complex carbohydrates. This ensures maximum micro-nutrients and energy without weighing the body down before afternoon activities.
The evening meal features lean proteins and alkalising vegetables with complex carbohydrates to replace glycogen stores, aid in repair and recovery for the next day’s activities, and upregulate the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine to encourage a relaxed evening and a restful night of sleep.
