Local and Seasonal Fare
Working in conjunction with The Capra’s Head Chef Eric Glauser and the Peak Health Nutrition team, the retreat menu focuses on simple, fresh, seasonal food, locally and organically sourced foods designed to balance and nourish from the inside out. All of the meals are beautifully presented by 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, eat family style, taking time out to appreciate the wonderful food, discuss our day with our companions, and take time to pause and breathe between bites, which is beneficial for both our 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 for your morning hike and day of activity with Peak Health signature dairy and gluten free Bircher, locally made spelt bread and low GI fruit and accompaniments with alkalizing green juice to kick start the day.
