Nutrition Retreat in Italy

The aim of this retreat is to teach you about health and nutrition and to give you an insight into one important part of the Italian culture - wine.

The teacher on this retreat is a Certified Holistic Nutritionist. Anastasija obtained her qualification from the Institute of Holistic Nutrition in Vancouver, Canada. She spent her apprenticeship on a farm in Vancouver Island, where she studied herbal medicine and medicine making. She also has experience as a recipe tester and developer and was working in health food cafes.

Anastasija uses her knowledge of health to design and plan recipes as well as menus that will be used for the nutrition and wine retreat and she promises that the 3 days will be full of delicious and healthy meals. There will also be workshops on nutrition and on healthy cooking, covering the main pillars of nutrition - fats, protein, and carbohydrates.

During this retreat, you will not only get profound knowledge about macronutrients but also get some ideas and inspiration on plant-based food choices. There will be demonstrations, how you can easily add some healthy food choices in your daily diet from plant-based sources. Each day will be emphasized on one topic and will include some food demonstration.

Do you want to learn how to make your own seed butter, or are you interested in making your own plant-based milk? Or you have always been curious about fermentation, and would like to get some impulses about how to start? Come and join us on this retreat and you will be enriched with health and nutrition knowledge, in a beautiful surrounding, far away from rush and distractions of our daily lives.

In the late afternoon, you will get the opportunity to taste the best wines of the region. Riccardo, who is not only passionate about his garden but also about wine, will share all his knowledge and provide you a real and authentic Italian dolce vita experience.

We will make sure that you will return back home and have learned the best secrets of healthy food choices and got to know the real Italian charm and spirit.
