November is a great time of year on Mallorca. We’ve come out of October, generally the wettest month, and temperatures are perfect for outdoor adventures and enjoying nature. We’re also loving all of the fresh, autumnal produce, perfect for making warming, nourishing meals for cosy evenings in. Here’s what we’re up to this month on our gorgeous island.
The cooler weather means some great hikes are back on the cards. This season we’re tackling the different stages of the ‘Ruta de Pedra en Sec’ (the Dry Stone Route), which stretches from Andratx to Pollença. There are 8-stages and an additional 6 variants covering around 170km, with refuges at the end of each stage to spend the night. Cobbled paths, beautiful townships, dry stone walls, and stunning mountain, landscape and sea views make it easy to see why this iconic path along the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range is so famous. To take any hassles out of planning your hike enlisting an experienced guide is a great option. Nourish highly recommends Nicky Hanganu at Zig Zag Mallorca. www.zigzagmallorca.com
Nourish recently spent a life-changing week at holistic fitness retreat The Body Camp in Sencelles, and we deeply regret not being able to pack Chef Ben Whale in our suitcase home so that we can savour his plant-based treats forevermore! Thankfully the new revised edition of The Body Camp Food Bible is fresh off the press. Described as “the only plant-based recipe book you’ll ever need”, all of Chef Ben’s amazing food is brought together in this fantastic cookery book. It encompasses everything you need to know about plant-based eating, including store cupboard essentials, soaking and sprouting, fermenting and all his classic breakfasts, mains, desserts, shakes, treats plus lots of extras. We highly recommend you order yours online now! www.thebodycamp.com/shop/
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing and is based around the transfer of life force energy from the practitioner’s palms to their patient. If your ‘life force energy’ is low, then you are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, you are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit, in turn promoting relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.

She has a desire and love to help people, wildlife and nature, and offers 30-minute, 45-minute and 1 hour in-person and distance sessions to clients of all ages, including animals.
