The Quarter Life Health Project Retreat: The Food

September 20, 2016

“Indulgent, delicious, wholesome and nutrient rich food is very much at the heart of our ethos at The Holistic Health Project.” Happily I found this statement to be true although perhaps “indulgent” is a slight stretch. The vegan gluten-free meals are all masterminded by THHP founder Stephanie and I found myself constantly quizzing her on the recipes, excited to recreate them myself at home.

I met my lovely friend and journalist extraordinaire Harriet Compston (Condé Nast Traveller) at 1.30PM for what we thought would be a one-hour lunch. We ended up leaving at 4PM. Of course we had lots to catch up on and discuss but, unfortunately, that wasn’t the reason for our two and a half hour luncheon.… Continue reading...
