Bring home inspired healthy cuisine with the new Kamalaya Cookazine!

Healthy cooking and food as medicineKoh Samui, Thailand... At Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary and Holistic Spa we focus on lasting results. As we approach our fourth anniversary, we’ve learned that what many of our guests want most to take home with them are the recipes for Kamalaya’s inspired healthy cuisine. We listened, and are now issuing the second edition of our journal, Reconnect, as a cookazine devoted to our guests’ favorite recipes, as well as nutritional and lifestyle advice.

“Kamalaya cuisine celebrates the joy and pleasure of healthy cooking,” says Kamalaya co-founder Karina Stewart, a nutritionist and doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine who worked closely with Chef Kai Mueller to develop the Kamalaya menus. “The aim behind our two restaurants, Soma and the Amrita Café, is to inspire our guests with food so delicious and healthful that they can experience the healing power of food and know that food as medicine is – and must continue to be – an integral part of the healing journey.”

To truly embrace food as medicine, it is essential to reduce the use of sugar and sugar-producing foods. Kamalaya favours fad-free over fat-free, and prefers a sensible approach to dining that aims to educate and inspire guests to develop a more thoughtful and enticing relationship with food.

Purists may be alarmed to find a few richer dishes on the menu, like Risotto, but Kamalaya recognizes that human nature sometimes seeks indulgence. So the menu was created to  include a smattering of indulgent dishes to replicate the “real world” and illustrate the wisdom of balance and moderation.

“Our approach is to make so many other healthy and delicious options available, that it is effortless to make healthful choices,” Karina says.

When it comes to healthy eating, the quest for perfection can be our greatest downfall because it often leads to an all-or-nothing mentality where one chocolate seems little different to the entire box. Kamalaya’s philosophy is pragmatic and realistic and seeks to inspire rather than dictate, and Chef Kai Mueller’s masterful interpretation of food as medicine serves up health with a generous splash of culinary flair.

Try your hand at home on Kamalaya menu mainstays such as Pumpkin Curry with Hot Basil & Mangosteen, Sweet Potato Roesti with Mushroom Ragout, or Warm Fennel Salad. The Cookazine is on sale now at the resort gift shop for 435 baht. Online orders can be placed via the Kamalaya website or by emailing asm(at)kamalaya.com.

Kamalaya Koh Samui is a Wellness Sanctuary & Holistic Spa located on the lush southern coast of Koh Samui. Kamalaya integrates healing practices and treatments from East and West in a beautiful natural environment with inspired healthy cuisine, customised programs, and wellness retreats. Together these offer a unique concept in personal wellbeing and holistic lifestyle possibilities.
