Six Senses Spa believes that the food that they serve at their spa should be enjoyable, balanced cuisine. So as opposed to the overly lean, often unsatisfying diet food that is sometimes served to health conscious spa-goers Six Senses Spa focuses on the important dietary needs. This delicious salad is a perfect balance of satiating and healthy and includes lightly seared scallops (which are high in omega-3 and vitamin B-12) and loads of raw veggies. The summer is a perfect time for enjoying lovely seafood and crisp, raw vegetables since the longer vegetables are cooked the more nutrients deplete. So pick up some fresh ingredients and balance body and mind!
