Description

Join us for this 1 week retreat as we cleanse the body with raw, vegan alkalizing foods, juices, smoothies, and gazpachos to improve metabolism, improve digestion, cleanse internal organs, reduce inflammation, increase energy, recalibrate the tastebuds, reset the appetite, educate, inspire, and clear the mind.

This retreat will change your approach to eating while you learn how specific foods promote health and prevent disease, and even heal disease. The cleansing and detoxifying menu is prepared and designed in creative, delicious ways filled with nutrient dense super-foods to ensure that you do not feel deprived.
