Ayahuasca Food & Nutrition
At Pisatahua we follow a traditional ayahuasca diet, while maximizing taste and nutritional value. To do this we provide our guests with fresh organic food from the Amazon. We never provide packaged, canned or processed foods. We avoid any simple sugars, hydrogenated oils or processed grains. Our food is “real” and locally sourced.
Much thought and preparation has gone into our menu. We place special emphasis on raw fruits, vegetables and juices – since cooking can destroy enzymes that help digestion. For fish-eaters, we serve fresh-fish from the Aquicuana Lake. We incorporate healthy fats through nuts and seeds. Additionally, we provide filtered water to all guests in their rooms and common areas.
We recommend guests follow the ayahuasca preperation diet for a minimum of 3 days prior to arrival. Please inform us if you have any food allergies or special dietary restrictions. We can accommodate most any need.
Below is a selection of recipes taken from our ayahuasca menu. While some of the ingredients will be difficult to find outside the Amazon, we encourage you to use our menu and recipes to help prepare for your arrival.
