More than just the absence of ailments, wellness is a dynamic process of change and growth encompassing physical, mental and social well-being and fulfillment. TreeCasa promotes the many facets of wellness from healthy eating and nutrition to connective spirit-mind-body experiences, healing and opportunities to roll up your sleeves and get involved.
ORGANIC FARM TO TABLE
Local, fresh and seasonal organic foods are a vital way to directly connect people to the source of their meals and rebuild healthy relationships to food, people and the land. Our farm-to-table movement provides a delicious way to improve nutrition and gain appreciation for mindful, organic living. Enjoy handcrafted dishes made from the freshest vegetables, herbs and fruit grown right in our organic garden, less than 100 meters from the restaurant.
Even better, take a cooking class and learn how to make flavorful plant-based meals. The classes will teach you the benefits of antioxidant and nutrient-rich plants. Build a detoxifying food plan and take an active role in boosting your energy, health and healing.
BOOST & REFRESH
Stop by the bar to get your daily booster shots. Beautiful concoctions of superfood juices and special smoothies blended from foods handpicked each morning in our organic garden, orchard and food forests. Try the TreeCasa Super Juice, a beautiful zinger of moringa, papaya, orange, dragonfruit, carrot, beet, cucumber and ginger; or the Ginger Smoothie, a luscious blend of ginger, lime, mint, banana, orange and passionfruit. They’re not just pretty and delicious; each drink contains a nutritional powerhouse.
The foods that go into our juice and smoothie blends are proven to boost immune health. For example, antioxidant-rich moringa repairs cellular damage, lowers cholesterol and blood sugar levels and reduces inflammation. The brilliant pink or yellow orb that is the magnificent dragonfruit is rich in phytonutrients, omegas 3 and 6, Vitamin C and several B vitamins that control carbohydrate metabolism. A single passion fruit contains 98% of daily fiber needs, and its dose of vitamin A, C, flavonoids and phenolic compounds are all anti-aging and anti-cancer agents. Its flowers, passiflora, reduce anxiety and aid sleep. Gingerol, the main bioactive compound in ginger, is an anti-inflammatory agent that reduces muscle pain and soreness. Ginger aids indigestion, lowers cholesterol and blood sugars.
