Our trained chefs create balanced and delicious vegetarian meals. We use locally grown organic
produce when available and other high quality foods to offer you a menu designed to keep your
body strong and your mind uncluttered.
The menu varies daily and we do our best to keep most of our foods gluten and dairy free,
however not at all times. Meals are generally simple, healthy and nutritionally balanced to offer
you a supportive retreat experience.

Breakfast: Oatmeal and other hot cereals, homemade granola, fresh fruits and dried fruit
compote, breads (gluten free options), dairy and nut butters, jams, milks (dairy-free options),
yogurt, and hardboiled eggs.

Special Food Needs
We can accommodate gluten, dairy, and soy allergies. If you have other acute food allergies, please refer to our two meal options below.
Option 1– Acute Allergy to All 3 - Wheat/Dairy/Soy. This is a package deal. Most likely the wheat alternative will be rice, quinoa, or millet. Beans or lentils will be offered. Rice milk offered.
Option 2– Other Acute Allergies. We offer a large bowl of steamed brown rice, a large bowl of mixed steamed veggies. No protein will be offered since most in this category will have various allergies to the vegetarian proteins as well.
Please bring your own food to supplement your meals here, especially if you have certain food preferences. We have limited refrigerator space.
Please contact our Main Office at least one week before your arrival to make the necessary arrangements. Planning ahead of time helps us provide the best service possible.
