The Food

80/10/10 Raw Food

The food at the festival is all raw foods following the principles behind the 80/10/10 diet. 80/10/10 means that you eat a minimum of 80% carbohydrates, maximum 10% fat and a maximum 10% protein of your daily calorie intake. This means lots of fruit, salad and vegetables and only a small amount of nuts and seeds. Most people are familiar with what is called Gourmet Rawfood but this is very different. Everything is as fresh and whole as possible with as little processing and dehydrating as possible.

Organic produce

It is important to us that the food we serve is as healthy as possible and therefore we strive to get as much organic produce as possible. Therefore about 80% of the food at the festival is organic. Excemptions are things like Pakistan honey mangoes because they are simply not available in the organic form but people like them so much they don’t seem to care anyway. The exotic fruit for people to taste will also not be organic.

International Raw Food Chefs

Every year we invite one or two highly skilled 80/10/10 raw food chefs to prepare the food at the festival. While breakfast and lunch may be simple with lots of plain fruits, salads and smoothies, the chefs will create more advanced recipes for dinner. Previously it has been dishes like zucchini noodle pasta, lasanga, burritos, chili, veggie stews, wraps, icecream, cakes etc. all raw and vegan of course. These dishes may contain spices, nuts and seeds but salt is avoided.

Raw and Vegan

Because it is a raw food festival there will not be any cooked options available. Everything is 100% vegan so that means no meat, fish, egg, dairy or poultry and also no grains, potatos or pasta either. Typical meals will instead consist of fruits and vegetables like melons, oranges, mangos, bananas, strawberries, pinapples, lettuce, selleri, zucchini, tomatoes, cucumbers etc. They may also be some raw crackers or tortillas awailable but it is not guaranteed. Whenever possible we will priorietise food that is locally grown.

Exotic Fruits

As a little extra thing we present some different exotic fruits during the fesitval for people to taste. There will be a few pieces per person and it can be fruits like jackfruit, mangosteen, papaya, cherimoya, durian or perhaps dragonfruit. Hopefully we will introduce you to some new exotic fruits you have never tasted before.

Drinks

Because it is a super healthy festival there will be lots of water available for people to drink. There may also be smoothies and juices during meals but plain water will be the main source of liquid. There will be both tap water, cleaned water, reverse osmosis and distilled water available, but don’t expect things like sodas, alcohol, milk or canned juice. For four days you will instead cleanse and hydrate your body with pure and healthy water.
