Detox Life

Yoga food

For Yogaakademins retreat I made simple raw dishes like lasagne, pizza, cauliflower risotto, curry pumpkin sauces, the yoga girl taco, shaved salads, sprouts and rice paper rolls.

To ground us I made warm curried rice with nigella seeds, sweet potatoes in the oven, sun flower pate and warm soups.

Simple salads with seasonal veggies and loads of fresh herbs. I picked nettles, dandelion, blackberries and rose hip from the grounds around us.

I fell in love with the lemon balm, the great ginger and fresh turmeric root form the local market making tea and infused waters with.

Goats cheeses and for the last dinner I grilled dorado and makrill with shaved lemons and limes. Stuffed with lemon balm and salad onions.

So not totally raw that´s the way I like it. I wanted to show how plant food can be part of any persons diet when added in smal portions. Keep it simple and make fun. Less diet and rules, it´s just another way to prepare food.

Better to add to your regular menu and see if that dish suits you. Use your own favourite spices and find recipes as inspiration.
Give it some time. The flavours and textures will feel a bit new in the beginning.

But with time your taste buds will become sharper and you will need less artificial additives and less of everything.

The reaction in the different yoga groups where that after a day or two the vegetables and fruits own flavours became more apparent. Sweetners and salts where not needed to the same extent.

I used olive oil, sesame oil, coconut oil, tamari, miso paste, sea weeds, nut butters, turmeric, acai, spirulina, sun dried tomatos, dates, raisins, cold pressed apple cider vinegar, lemon zest, chili, fenugreek, nigella seeds, black mustard seeds. I pickled onions and beets.
Pimped everything with zucchini blossoms, sun and burdock flowers.

We went to the market without an agenda saw what was in that day and just went wild.
