Vegan Meals in Costa Rica at Waterfall Villas Wellness Retreat

What is a Vegan?

Vegetarians do not eat meat, fish, or poultry. Vegans, in addition to being vegetarian, do not eat or use other animal products and by-products such as eggs, dairy products, honey, leather, fur, silk, wool, cosmetics, and soaps derived from animal products.  Fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, whole grains, nuts, seeds and legumes are the dietary staples for all vegans.

Why Veganism?

People choose to be vegan for health, environmental, and/or ethical reasons.  For example, some vegans feel that one promotes the meat industry by consuming eggs and dairy products.  That is, once dairy cows or egg-laying chickens are too old to be productive, they are often sold as meat; and since male calves do not produce milk, they usually are raised for veal or other products.  Some people avoid these items because of conditions associated with their production.

Vegan Cuisine at Waterfall Villas Wellness Retreat

Organic Vegan foods are the new medicine for humanity.  Through a proper balance of grains, fruits and vegetables, you can become healthier and feel better.  

At Waterfall Villas Wellness Retreat, Fateh Bolivar is a Top Vegan & Raw Foods Chef.  Fateh has had a passion for cooking since adolescence and traveled all over the world learning ethnic cooking - world cuisine is her flair.  She spent five years training her local Costa Rican cooks the magic of Vegan and Raw after a lifetime of international experience in the kitchen and converting her experience to her new lifestyle.  When you visit the Waterfall Villas, your meals are created from the heart with love and in consideration for your food allergies or sensitivities.

You will discover how wonderful healthy live foods and fresh foods can taste!  You will have the opportunity to try many tropical delights from our rainforest, and our own highland organic farm where a unique micro-climate facilitates the most tasty veggies and fruits imaginable.  

Waterfall Villas Wellness Retreat now offers the new Pegan Diet, which is a hybrid of Paleo and Vegan cuisines, but with no animal proteins.  This new diet was featured in the Daily Beast recently.  According to Caroline Cederquist, MD, creator of bistroMD and author of The MD Factor, “By combining the principles of these two diets and reducing their specific dietary restrictions, you get a diet that’s better balanced in regards to macronutrients, and easier to follow than a strictly paleo or vegan diet.” 

Waterfall Villas also offers the Vegan Honeymoon Retreat, where you can relax in luxury and enjoy very healthy meals.  Our chef has put together an absolutely fabulous menu for this package to totally wow you into your new life together with scrumptious romantic meals by the waterfalls!
