What types of dietary needs can you accommodate?
We are in a remote location and cooking for large groups, with very limited access to food/markets. We are limited in this way due to our location and the resources available to us, and that because of this, we aren’t able to guarantee specific food requests as centers in other locations may be able to.
The food at the Santuario Ayahuasca is served according to the predominant Shipibo wisdom around food served with ayahuasca along with influences of local Peruvian cuisine. While we do serve a variety of fruits and vegetables, we are also limited by our location in the jungle (all foods are carried in by foot) and the lack of electricity and hence refrigeration to preserve foods. Our meals are served buffet style. Breakfast includes chopped fruit, and any combination of cooked oatmeal or quinoa porridge, rice, eggs,steamed yucca, and avocados. For lunch and dinners, there is generally rice or quinoa, some form of cooked veggie dish, legumes (lentils, beans, etc.), and a basic salad (sometimes lettuce or cabbage, cucumber, tomato, avocado).
While we can accommodate some special dietary requests, the logistics involved in holding our retreats can make it difficult to honor all of them, particularly from those with acute allergies or sensitivities.
If you have any allergies or special dietary needs emphasize Maestro Enrique so he can tell the cooks about your case.
