Food & Kitchen
We promote an Ayurvedic diet at Kranti Yoga and our food is prepared in accordance with this old Indian tradition. We consider proper nutrition to be a very important part of your time with us. We want to ensure that you are giving your body what it needs to support your daily yoga practice, health and wellbeing. We have an onsite organic Ayurvedic Indian kitchen with wonderful cooks, who prepare our food daily. We are strictly vegetarian and are more than willing to cater for vegans, lactose intolerant, gluten free and more.
Our courses include all food: breakfast, lunch, dinner and refreshments throughout the day. All our meals are served as a buffet with many options for you to choose from. Our dining area is in Sattva, the hub of the village. Enjoy mealtimes here with your peers or maybe dine on your terrace should you want a little quiet time.
Our kitchen is at your service and ready to accommodate all your dietary requirements, whatever they may be. Our kitchen is your kitchen. If there is something you need or crave, we will always try to help. If you miss a meal, our cooks will always rustle something up for you. There is never a need to be hungry.
All the food is sourced locally and so the menu will consist of seasonal fruit and vegetables. Local produce is organically grown and bought on a daily basis. We also buy groceries from nearby stores in order to support the local economy.
Daily Menus will include the following:
Curd & Honey
Carrot and Coriander Soup
Cheese and Tomato Sandwiches
Goan Vegetable Curry
Chapattis (Indian bread)
Fruit & Nuts
Palak Paneer (Spinach and Paneer)
Chana Masala (Chickpea Masala)
Dhal (Lentil Curry)
Pasta and Tomato & Basil Sauce
Date and Chocolate Cake
We believe an Ayurvedic diet is the best way to support a yogic lifestyle. Our food is prepared with ghee as it is believed to keep the body well maintained. Ghee not only helps digestion, it helps burn off some of the less desirable fat in our bodies. However, for some of you, you may prefer a lighter alternative. We do serve salads and lighter food that may not necessarily be compatible with Ayurveda but have previously been requested by guests. We also sometimes serve pasta with tomato sauce as it provides a welcome alternative to traditional Indian food. We aim to please and make sure that all tastes are catered for. Ultimately, we always encourage our guests to be Ayurvedic and hope that we provide enough information for you to make educated food choices. Your own self-discipline is crucial to eating healthily.
Ayurvedic supplements such as Ashwaganda and Shilajit are provided for you as we believe they can really help you build strength and stamina to see you through your course.
At weekends, you will have time to try the local cuisine. We have a prime location on Patnem Beach where you will find a range of restaurants serving a host of tasty and healthy choices. You can choose from traditional Indian dishes or pick from a rich international menu that is widely available in most restaurants. The food in Patnem and neighbouring Palolem is some of the finest cuisine on offer in Goa. Patnem is renowned for a high standard of hygiene.
Whether you go truly Ayurvedic, stick to your own food regime or eat locally, one thing is certain, you will never be hungry at Kranti Yoga. Bon Appetit!!!
