Balanced Nutrition

The Kripalu Kitchen uses high-quality, all-natural ingredients to offer an array of nutritionally sound choices at every meal. Whole grains, fresh vegetables, and legumes form the backbone of the menus, with organic poultry, fish, and dairy products as optional protein sources.

Meals are served buffet-style. Fresh salad fixings and a selection of delicious salad dressings are always available, as are our famous freshly baked breads. Additionally, the Ayurvedic-influenced Buddha Bar offers simple preparations of legumes, grains, vegetables, and an assortment of balancing condiments.
