A MOUTHWATERING EXPERIENCE

GOURMET VEGETARIAN & VEGAN CUISINE

Nutrition is more than just feeding the physical body. Food is essential on so many levels and that’s why Lakshmi Rising has chosen Gaia Gourmet Cuisine to cater all of our international retreats and yoga teacher trainings. This incredible cuisine nourishes every aspect of your being - supporting, nourishing, and cleansing your body, mind & spirit along your journey.

Our talented plant-based chef creates three unforgettable Gaia Gourmet vegetarian or vegan meals per day inspired by the world’s greatest cuisines. Our healthy organic food is artistically crafted to please all of the senses. Meals are designed around the seasons using Ayurvedic principles while incorporating the best and freshest local ingredients, herbs and spices. We procure and serve all organic produce from local Costa Rican family farms. Our meals are well balanced and prepared with love. This positive energy is infused into the food, aiding the digestion process.

BALANCED NUTRITION FOR THE BODY, MIND & SPIRIT

It’s important to us that you are well-fed and completely nourished from the inside out when you join us on retreat or for your training. With a vegetarian-based menu (and vegan & gluten-free options available), we provide plenty of protein by using legumes, seeds and nuts, artisan cheeses, and eggs from free-ranging chickens. We only use whole grains and natural sweeteners. With an ever-expanding orchard of over 300 various tropical fruit trees, our freshly picked organic fruits make great complements to your dining experience. Overall, this will produce a more lively healthy body and mind and is the most environmentally friendly diet.

We always do our best to accommodate food allergies. We can omit certain items from dishes, such as cheese, dairy, and nuts. We cannot guarantee a completely gluten-free or nut-free environment. Persons with serious food allergies such as Celiac's Disease or those on a 100% raw food diet should not attend a retreat. We must know of all serious food issues at least three weeks prior to arrival. Bring an open mind and allow your taste buds to savor this unique culinary adventure!
