Raw food cleanse at Coastal Trek

Coastal Trek Resort launches its new Raw Food Cleanse Program this weekend.

Coastal Trek Resort launches its new Raw Food Cleanse Program this weekend.

Autumn is a perfect time to cleanse, detoxify and rebalance the body inside and out. Traditionally the resort has operated in spring and summer. This year, with the addition of program director Helen Pattinson, guests can enjoy year-round activities and events centred on health and wellness.

Coastal Trek’s Autumn Cleanse Friday to Monday  includes sunrise yoga, raw food, guided nature walks, spa treatments, candlelit yoga, kitchen classes, make your own natural body scrub and a mystery movie night.

Raw Rose, Comox Valley’s renowned raw food chef, leads the kitchen class, sharing her secrets and recipes. Guests benefit from hands-on kitchen experience and take home inspiring recipes.

“Our vision it to give guests a delicious taste of raw food that they can integrate into daily life,” said Andrea Stuchbery, manager and in-house chef. “Cleansing is often associated with extreme fasting and purging. Though beneficial, people can find themselves falling back into unhealthy lifestyle patterns when they stop.

“Our aim is to empower guests to make healthy lifestyle changes that are sustainable in the long-term. We provide pre-cleanse and post-cleanse nutritional guidance and recipes. Guests leave feeling rejuvenated in body and mind, and with tools to integrate their experience into their lives.”

Benefits of eating raw foods include improved digestion, balancing of the body’s pH levels, weight management and physical vitality.

Coastal Trek is a retreat centre tucked in the mountains on Forbidden Plateau. Programs help people find health and vitality through hiking, yoga, skiing, snowshoeing, nutrition and massage. The family-run business specializes in small group programs to maintain high quality.
