Have you heard of The Farm at San Benito? It’s a destination spa two hours outside of Manila in the Philippines. What a surprise – it is very luxurious in an eco-friendly way. I had heard that it is a five-star vegan detox place. I knew I would be able to handle the five-star part, but vegan and colonics?
Well, so far I have just experienced the former (colon detox is scheduled for this afternoon). Last night I had a five-course vegan dinner that was amazing. Here’s the menu:
Cauliflower samosas with mint chutney
Creamy miso tomato soup
Indonesian rice tamales with carrot lemongrass sauce
Assorted Indian pastries with mango lasse shot
And then I decided to finish it off with a serving of virgin coconut oil, which is all the rage here for detox. It is supposed to prepare me for the upcoming colon detox.
