This month we’re all about salads! Sliced, diced, tossed in a flavoursome dressing, topped with your favourite superfood for an extra boost- scintillating salads are the perfect light bite for hot summer days!
Were you told as a child to “eat up your greens?” Well, turns out that was excellent advice! Packed with nutrients and full of fibre, greens are your body’s best friend. Dark green leafy vegetables are full of vitamins and minerals and they act as antioxidants in the body- removing dangerous free radicals. They’re an excellent source of fibre and folate, and contain carotenoids, which can stop the growth of certain cancers. Even better, they’re super-low in calories! So visit the Synergy Café to try our Runner Bean salad- a super mix of leafy greens, with beans, peas and basil leaves. It’s just of the many tasty leafy creations we have for you.
On July 20th we’re celebrating all things salad with our Salad Mania event. Our chefs will be on hand to help you choose from an array of tasty ingredients, so you can prep the perfect salad for you. Construct your own eclectic mix of healthy ingredients, then whip up a tasty dressing to your exact taste. Drizzle and delight!
On the other hand you could just leave it all to us at Synergy Café, where we love coming up with new salads to please your palate. We’re giving all sorts of good things a whirl- try our Mediterranean Black Rice salad, made with organic rice and tasty pine nuts. Add a splash of colour to your healthy living with our Red Quinoa Kale Salad with Tofu. And you’ll be full of beans with our Bean Salad- green, garbanzo, kidney and yellow beans.
Cooling and delicious, iced tea is the perfect summer beverage. It’s also very good for you. Tea is bursting with antioxidants, which fight ageing and disease. It has less caffeine than coffee, so will revive while soothing you. Green tea is especially good for your heart and bones. Meanwhile herbal infusions have wonderful medicinal properties: chamomile is calming, peppermint is great for digestion, while ginger can ease nausea. The Synergy Café has a whole range of iced tea treats for you this summer- so stop by and cool down!
Now, what would tea be without a slice of cake? Treat yourself to one of our healthy cakes for a guilt-free pleasure! Our Chocolate Cheesecake is delicious- and you’ll be pleased to hear it’s also good for you! It’s dairy free and gluten free, made with organic cocoa, the finest quality chocolate and coconut milk. So you can indulge knowing you’re doing your body good!
As a luscious alternative, you can dive into the depths of our Persian Love Cake. This sweet, delicate concoction blends the delicate flavours of pistachio, rose petal, cinnamon and cardamom, with coconut sugar for sweetness. It’s a healthy treat that will send your taste buds into a spin!
Ayurvedic medicine is an ancient system, based on balance between mind, body and spirit. It came from India thousands of years ago. More than a system of medicine, it is a way of life. In Ayurveda the mind and body are inextricably connected, and the mind has the power to heal the body. Restful awareness of the mind can help the body to stay healthy and to thrive, and so meditation is central to Ayurveda. Eating healthily, sleeping well and living in harmony with nature are all part of this connected way of living.
Ayurveda treats the body on a holistic level, and massages play a key role. And this July, we’re offering 15% off all our Ayurveda treatments. Now’s the perfect time to give your body some love and attention. Our Marma Massage uses soothing oils to stimulate your body’s Marma points- the body’s vital life points. It nourishes internal organs and strengthens bones, while leaving the body revitalised and detoxified.
Our Abyhyangam massage is very popular because of its body-conditioning benefits. It improves circulation and relaxes muscles, while at the same time rejuvenating the skin and eliminating toxins. For stress relief, the Shirodhara treatment has amazing results. It involves the steady flow of medicated oils onto the forehead’s “third eye”, bringing mental clarity and helping to release negative emotions.
Our Thermal Suites have huge body benefits, too. Moving from hot to cold temperatures is excellent for your circulation, stimulating the blood flow and making you feel exhilarated. The warmth of our sauna and steam room soothes away aches and pains, while the ice plunge pool is great for muscle recovery. You’ll emerge revived, refreshed- and ready to take advantage of our special Thermal Suite offer- for every booking, we’ll give you a free salad from our Synergy Café! Book your Ayurveda treatment today and explore a new world of holistic well-being!
