After 3 hectic days at Milan Fashion week I headed to Sha  . It has been on my travel Diaries list since  Igave birth in March .

I went to Sha to Detox ,Relax my body and mind ,distress and learn the healthy lifestyle and diet programme they offer .

I was taken away by the beautiful scenery it is surrounded by and the view from top is simply breath taking . I spent 3 full days at Sha , As i had arrived i was welcomed by the friendly Staff who had prepared a tour around the wellness clinic . I arrived close to sunset time  and the sunset from Sha was just so beautiful  i mean i have never seen a better sunset view in my life and the city is so peaceful and has such a good energy about it. It just calms you down and relaxes your mind .

SHA Nutrition

SHA offers three different types of healthy menu (SHA, Biolight and Kushi) in order to meet all of the  guests’ needs and goals. These menus are different every day at lunch and dinner. With the help of their expert consultants in healthy nutrition, they are customised to suit each of the  guests’ particular needs.

The three types of diet are adapted to the seasons, making an effort to use cereals, legumes, vegetables, fish and cooking methods that are best suited to each season, with organic and seasonal food. Furthermore, it should be noted none of their menus include certain foodstuffs such as meat, eggs, dairy products, sugar or other artificial sweeteners, solanaceae (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers and aubergines), or very hot spices.

Kushi Menu
This is the strictest and most restrictive gastronomic diet, but this does not mean it is less healthy. It is recommended for those who aim to control their weight or intensively detoxify their body. It has smaller portions and also does not include certain healthy ingredients like oil, baked flour, nuts, pasta or oats. A little salt is also added. Fish is only included once a week and the diet is characteristic for including a lot of algae and hearty soups like miso that help cleanse the body and provide energy and vitality.

Biolight Menu
This is the intermediate version of the SHA diet, designed for those who wish to use their time in SHA to take a bit more care of themselves than usual and learn about healthy eating and the benefits it brings, without setting themselves detox or weight control goals that are too strict. It is the gastronomic menu which they  normally recommend for the  guests who come with other health programmes such as for anti-stress, anti-tobacco or rejuvenation. Lunch includes a starter, a main course and a dessert (if desired), whereas dinner only includes the first and second courses.

This menu is part of a healthier diet and its ingredients usually include fish three times a week and pasta twice a week, while allowing for a sparing use of oil and nuts.

SHA Menu
Their gastronomic menu is very comprehensive. It is intended for those who are visiting SHA and who wish to learn about a healthier diet without compromising on the amount of food nor their gourmet tastes. Although it also follows the principles of the SHA diet and healthy nutrition, the menu is noteworthy for how well all of the dishes in it are prepared and the attention to detail in them.
Lunch and dinner both include a starter, a choice between two main courses (usually one with fish and the other with whole-grain pasta) and a dessert.

The healthy food at SHA Wellness Clinic aims at introducing healthy eating habits into lifestyle of their guest and it is based on local organic products. The SHA diet follows the principles of Macrobiotics, which has helped thousands of people discover a simple and natural way to establish and re-establish health, in such a way that it adapts to the modern way of life and the specific needs of each person, without losing the real essence of haute cuisine.

My favorite dishes at SHA : The Pakora :Grilled cut in julienne strips vegetables (cabbage, onion or zucchini) boiled in Indian sauce garnished with pressed salad

Gnochetti sardi with cuttefish bolognese :Pasta made with cuttlefish, garlic and onion, seasoned with mild spicy “flake” tomato sauce and seafood stock.

Vegetables paella with chickpeas:New approach of the traditional Mediterranean dish made with brown rice, chickpeas and season vegetables, making the most of each natural nutrient.

Sauteed peas with an emulsion of black garlic and marinated horse mackerel:Marinated horse mackerel in salt and species, over an onion stock garnished with an emulsion of black garlic and sautéed peas.

Carob brownie with vanilla cream:Unique blend of rice milk with a special flour made of carob, nuts and integral spelt, served with vegetable vanilla cream and red fruits.
The products used to create the  dishes are chosen very carefully, taking into consideration the seasons, the quality and the combination of ingredients to come up with an energetic, healing, healthy and very tasty experience.
