Taking place during the first month of every year, Veganuary encourages people to try a vegan lifestyle in January and beyond, removing meat and dairy products from their diet for health and ethical reasons. For those keen to take on the post-Christmas vegan challenge, the recently opened Glass House Retreat in Essex is the perfect place to start.
Glass House Retreat is the UK's first purpose-built spa and detox retreat - perfect for some pre-wedding pampering. Set in the heart of the Essex countryside, it is less than an hour from Central London and offers bespoke programmes designed to champion fitness, wellness and detox. With a dedicated culinary team on hand to educate guests on the benefits of a plant-based diet, Glass House Retreat is a great place to kick start a healthy vegan lifestyle with a day trip, weekend stay, or short break.
Glass House Retreat in Essex provides guests with a selection of delicious and colourful plant-based meals, led by head chef and raw food pioneer Miguel Gouveia. It specialises in offering a pure detox experience focused around fresh, organic and locally sourced produce so guests can begin their wellness journey by cleansing away life's impurities. Plant-based diets and juices at Glass House Retreat are rich in vitamins and minerals, low in cholesterol and high in fibre. Glass House champions detox so does not offer junk food, caffeine or alcohol.
Glass House Retreat in Essex aims to educate its guests on the principles of plant-based eating so that they are well-equipped to continue their wellness journey after their stay if they're looking to get healthy before their wedding.
