Fancy seeing what it’s like to ‘go raw’? Here you’ll find retreats where you can cleanse or heal a health issue using predominantly raw food. Raw retreats usually offer a menu of plant-based meals with vegetables, fruit, nuts and seeds that are uncooked or warmed to 42°C so you get the most nutritional, immune-busting value. For some it’s a way of cleansing the body or healing a health issue, for others it becomes a lifestyle. Not everyone suits a raw diet, so ask lots of questions before you book. And don’t expect to be deprived – instead, imagine eating a delectable healthy chocolate dessert on a raw retreat in Asia or nurturing yourself with a bowlful of goodness followed by an amazing Macadamia nut cheese with crackers at a cosy retreat in England.
