Spring has sprung!
Finally the island is starting to thaw and we couldn’t be happier or more ready for a little warmth. Things are in full swing as the season and work ramps up on the island, but that doesn’t stop us making self-care a priority. Here’s Nourish’s wellbeing round-up for March.
At Nourish we love to eat seasonally and March means it’s the season for wild asparagus (or ‘Trigueros’ as the Spanish call them). You can find us with the locals scouring the fields and roadsides for the lovely thin stemmed, intensely flavoured asparagus variety that pops up all over the island this time of year. Delicious simply boiled or steamed, you can also try grilling or roasting them for a nuttier flavour. Douse in olive oil, salt and pepper, and a squeeze of lemon and it’s a winner!
If you’re looking for a healthy and tasty meal on the go, or perhaps somewhere to pick up lunch for the whole crew, then Canteen 14 is the spot for you. With a range of nourishing bowls for vegetarians, vegans, and meat eaters alike, the slogan ‘a bowl for every soul’ is very fitting. We love the ‘Bangkok Bowl’ a warming Massaman chicken curry served with brown rice and green vege. Make sure you pick up a sweet treat (the gluten free peanut cake is drool worthy) for that afternoon snack too. Find Canteen 14 just one street back from the Paseo Maritimo along Carrer de la Llotja in La Lonja. Phone orders welcome on +34 692 02 52 92.
Before the season is well and truly underway why not treat yourself to some pampering? We love escaping away to Bikini Beach Boutique and Spa located within easy reach on Paseo Mallorca in Palma. Indulge in a delicious facial or heavenly massage and experience the beautiful Comfort Zone range of products. These products are made from the finest natural-origin ingredients, and meet the highest standards of transparency and responsibility for the environment (bonus – they smell delish!). With many other treatments on offer including waxing, manicures and tinting you can start the season looking and feeling fab. Find Bikini Beach on Facebook or call +34 636 475 543.
In the super yacht industry where personal grooming is paramount and appearance is important, having a nice smile is a real asset. However it is estimated around 75 per cent of adults have some level of fear when going to the dentist. Are your pearly whites suffering because of fear or procrastination? Then you need to visit Clinica Dental Peralta Silverstone conveniently located in the centre of Palma. As a holistic dental clinic they have a different approach to dentistry. Holistic dentistry and The Neurofocal Dentistry approach involves treating your overall health and well-being, not only the visible symptoms but the root cause. This could include utlising acupuncture, kinesiolgy, kobido, nutrition and more alongside your regular dental treatments. Daniel and his team will put you at ease with their dedicated care and knowledge within a comfortable and relaxing environment. Find out more at www.clinicadentalps.com
With a large Roman Catholic population, Mallorca celebrates the beginning of Lent with a carnival on Sunday 3rd March. There will be plenty of celebrations all over the island, but you will find the largest fiesta in Palma. Sa Rueta is the children’s parade which happens from 10.30am to 1.30pm, followed by the adults parade, Sa Rua, in the evening from 5pm. Soak up the atmosphere and get involved with the street parties, live music and costumes. Foodies can sample local delicacies like Ensaimada con Tallades – a traditional pastry stuffed with pork loin, and butifarrón – a Mallorcan sausage. Processions will march down La Rambla, C. de La Riera, C. de la Unió, Pl. del Rei Joan Carles I and Av. de Jaume III. See you there!
Wishing you a happy and sunny March!
