Menu/Cuisine

Your health and wellbeing matters to us therefore the menu is created to detoxify your body.

You will be enjoying three meals every day. Each meal consists of healthy, seasonal, organic, vegetarian, vegan, or raw food, along with freshly prepared homemade raw snack delights, detox juices, and evening herbal tea.
The experienced chef has a true love and deep knowledge of healthy food. He is exceptional and he always loves to share his knowledge with the participants. He will concentrate on the nutritional, healthy value of the locally grown, fresh mediterranean food and will be spoiling you with delicious, nutritious meals, with a Mediterranean touch.
Please note that on this retreat, there will be no sugar used in foods, as well as no meat and alcohol or any processed foods.
All the meals will be prepared from the scratch using only whole foods- garden to table.

Fruit and vegetables served during your stay will be locally-grown, seasonal, organic foods from small local ecological farms and gardens, which will be combined with freshly picked Mediterranean herbs. Additionally, since the retreat location is on the Mediterranean coast, fish and seafood can be occasionally served upon request or during the culinary tour.

Bread will be homemade, using ecological flour, and the cheese will be supplied by local goat farmers. The cold pressed extra virgin ecological olive oil from Korcula will be used as well to supplement the meals.

Many times, participants have special dietary requests or allergies, and the chef has to prepare an additional menu just for that person on top of regular meals. Therefore, special dietary requests can be communicated up front or can be accommodated for additional fees. Please send an inquiry to Joy of the Mediterranean for more information.

Breakfast
Lunch
