BEETROOT AND QUINOA RISOTTO
Healthy Cooking with Kamalaya
Nutrition plays a major role in restoring and maintaining health by supplying necessary nutrients to body cells for energy production, tissue repair, hormone production and proper organ function.
At Kamalaya we believe that food should be delicious and nutritious, which is what makes this hearty Beetroot and Quinoa Risotto one of our favourites.
This nutrient-dense alternative to a traditional white rice risotto is packed with essential nutrients such as vitamins A, C and iron. Beetroot is particularly supportive of the cardiovascular system and valued for its blood-enriching properties.
Known as “the mother of all grains” by the Incan Empire, quinoa is a wonderful source of protein, one of the only plant sources to provide all 9 essential amino acids.
It’s also a great source of fibre, magnesium and B vitamins and quinoa has a stabilising influence on blood glucose, making it a great base for a wholesome risotto.
The word ‘spa’ is an abbreviation for the Latin phrase ‘Sanus Per Aquam’, which means ‘health through water’ and ‘wellness’ refers to our state of good health and combines the concepts of wellbeing and fitness together.
The team of Life Enhancement Mentors at Kamalaya Koh Samui Wellness Sanctuary & Holistic Spa lead guests on an inward journey of self-reflection and can support them in letting go of emotions and perceptions that may be restrictive, unhelpful or damaging.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can accelerate healing significantly faster than normal methods by stimulating cell growth and tissue repair. It reduces swelling and inflammation by counteracting the lower supply of oxygen to the traumatised area.
