For us here at Nourish September is one of our favourite months on the island. A reprieve from the scorching temperatures of July and August, yet still warm enough for ocean dips and al fresco dining. September is the perfect time to head to the beaches and picturesque spots to enjoy the sunshine without the summer crowds.
YOUR BODY IS A TEMPLE
Have you been to Temple in Santa Catalina yet? If not, you’re missing out! This gorgeous café specialises in healthy plant based food that doesn’t compromise on flavour. Try a delicious energising acai bowl, a toast loaded with delectable goodies, homemade tarts and quiches, or perhaps one of their drool worthy vegan beyond burgers. Once your hunger is satiated peruse their spiritual boutique where you will find all sorts of wonderful things such as white sage smudge sticks, the Dr Bronners range of organic personal care products, coconut bowls, curcuma soaps, crystals and much more.
IT’S FIG SEASON!
This time of year means the fig trees are laden and we couldn’t be happier. These jewel like fruits can be eaten fresh, cooked, peeled, or unpeeled – whatever your preference! One of our favourite ways to enjoy figs is to stuff them with goats cheese and walnuts, then drizzle with honey and balsamic (Nourish loves local Mallorcan artisan honey from Mel Vici, or Caramel Ecològica de Mallorca), and cook at 200 degrees for about 10 to 12 minutes. Delicioso! As well as being absolutely delectable, figs also pack a health punch being rich in minerals including potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron and copper, and are a good source of antioxidant vitamins A, E and K, plus natural sugars and soluble fibre. Figs also contain prebiotics, which helps support the pre-existing good bacteria in the gut and are a good source of calcium.
SUP YOGA FUN
If you love yoga and love being out on the water then you should definitely give SUP yoga a try while the weather’s still warm. Our Yoga Mind duo Lilla and Peter are running SUP Yoga classes every Wednesday at 9am and Friday at 7pm at Palmanova Beach throughout September and October. The €35 fee includes a 1.5 hour SUP Yoga session, followed by a refreshing beverage at meeting point Key West Beach Bar (Carrer Martin Ros Garcia, 6). Spaces are limited so reservations are required. Book by popping into Key West, or contact Our Yoga Mind directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, or on +34 644 788 572.
WOMEN IN BUSINESS
We look forward to the first Thursday of every month when mymuybueno Deli hosts their ‘Women in Business Breakfast’. A chance to network with likeminded businesswomen on the island and hear from inspiring guest speakers, this month Eli Bozzolini from locally made, sustainable, slow-fashion label Sunvibes will share her journey as a woman in business. This months topic is ‘Instagram vs. Reality’. Head along and hear Eli share her experience and tools on how to use Instagram to boot your inspiration, connect, and feel more empowered. Please arrive at the deli for 8.30am to get your name badge, order breakfast and head inside.
