nutrition and wellness workshop

April 27th - 28th

Join us for a very special nutrition workshop at Mulvarra House with the team from Thrive cafe. This workshop which runs all day, includes a night’s accommodation at Mulvarra House Workshop and retreat Centre. During this workshop we will explore the foods with superpowers, and how to add them into your weekly routine. Many of the foods consumed today have a pro-inflammatory effect on the body, e.g. sugar, processed meat, too much caffeine……and the list continues. When your body is out of balance so too are the systems of your body e.g. your immune system, your digestive system, your reproductive system etc. once your system is out of balance your body is more susceptible to various conditions and illnesses. Our workshop will help you to introduce more fruit and vegetables into your diet through tasty meals,sides and snacks

The food experience on the retreat

At Mulvarra, we are very excited about food. Excited about where it comes from, how it is grown, how it is prepared, who you eat it with. As we are still in the early stages of developing Mulvarra and its Breathing Space, we are currently using fresh ingredients and organic food where we can but in the future we will grow our own food.We generally stick to vegetarian cooking in Mulvarra, although we are flexible and also cater to a variety of dietary restrictions. Vegetarian cooking is so versatile, you really don’t miss that piece of meat on your plate when it’s not there. Whatever your thoughts are on the topic, there is no denying that the meat production in most countries is not sustainable and certainly not animal friendly. When we do, very occasionally, prepare meat dishes we make sure it’s organically sourced
