Nutritious, healthy vegan cuisine

In the kitchen, you’ll enjoy light, healthy and balanced meals. An anti-inflammatory and detox plant-based health food. The team concocts nutrient-rich dishes with plant-based proteins and fresh fruit and vegetables. All ingredients are sourced either from the on-site organic garden or from local farms. Ranch Malibu’s chefs systematically adapt the menu to the seasons. Meals are shared with the group at your retreat, so you can bond and share good times.

Here are just a few of the dishes you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy during your week: gluten-free pesto and broccolini pizza, vegetable lasagne prepared with a homemade goat’s ricotta and walnut sauce, burrito bowl (house specialty), or buckwheat blueberry pancakes. In short, healthy, nutritious vegan cuisine awaits you. Meals can be taken in one of the indoor or outdoor dining rooms, and some lunches can be taken in the great outdoors after a hike.
