During our course we will eat a “healthy cuisine” in an integral approach:
We are particularly attentive to the food we offer - our cuisine is entirely based on the principles of healthy eating in the integral approach and will be mainly vegan/vegetarian and organic ! Our cooks Barbara and Filip have gone through a special training in the cuisine of M. D. Dimitar Pashkulev. the diet will be predominantly plant-based, low-fat, rich in minerals, vitamins and easily digestible raw and sparingly cooked foods. It is an abundance of fruit and vegetable salads and ssnacks with superfoods, cooked and roasted cereal and vegetable dishes with sprouts, delicious sauces with herbal spices and more. Besides tasting it, you can understand the subtleties of its preparation!
"Let the food be your medicine and the medicine be your food."
These words from the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates are applied in the choice and preparation of dishes out of the recommended product range:
1. Fruits - fresh, dry, and limited - processed; 2. Vegetables - raw and cooked without frying; 3. Cereals (mostly whole-grain) with a predominance of gluten-free cultures; 4. Legumes - green and ripe, also fermented; 5. Raw nuts, seeds and vegetable oils, the latter in limited amounts; 6. Additional plant product: herbs and spices (excluding the spiciest ones), sprouts, seaweeds, brewer's yeast, etc.; 7. Bee products - honey, pollen, wax, propolis, royal jelly; 8.
