Cuisine and Food

A Philosophy on Food

We live on, and often for, food. And yet the same food can shorten this life and reduce its quality. There are so many approaches to food and diet, each with its own justifications. At the simplest level, and a principle of Ayurveda and thus yoga, food should be both delicious and nutritious. To keep it natural means all homemade without processed food, local ingredients as much as possible, organic if available, and a well-balanced mix of ingredients. Equally, to keep it healthy in today’s modern food environment means no sugar, no iodized salt, no MSG or related products, and only the use of stable and healthy oils and fats.

Vitality and quality of life are directly influenced by the food you take which impacts your energy levels. It affects practice and activity progress. We care about that here and do our best to serve you food that is natural, healthy, and absolutely delicious.

An Approach to Food

Your stay at Samahita, on any program or package, includes a complete offering of food across our buffets. The timing of food on the buffet is designed to support your practice and activity level. Equally, how the food is made and what is in it are vital to your reenergizing of life and how your body gets cleaner, lighter and stronger. Hidden ingredients like oils, salt and sugar, along with bad food combinations, are often the main culprits behind low energy, weight gain, poor digestion, disturbed sleep, and a variety of other maladies. We have a team of over 10 Thai cooks and a talented head chef. They make all our food here with care and love. We hire a large team to ensure everything is homemade and fresh. Complimentary morning coffee, tea and bananas are out by 6:45am. The brunch buffet is from 10am until 1.30pm with breakfast items from 10am – 12pm and lunch from 11am, and dinner in the evening from 6-8pm. We try to cater for a wide variety of diets, displaying all possible allergens, give raw and vegan options while also catering for those who like to eat fish and dairy. We make fresh juice daily in our own kitchen for the brunch buffet and offer homemade soy milk, coconut milk, cow milk, brown rice milk, and a homemade electrolyte drink. Fully available for both your taste buds and your cells when you stay at Samahita.
