Raw Tacos with Mango Salsa

Raw Tacos with Mango Salsa


Raw Lettuce Tacos with nut meat and mango salsa (serves 2)


Nut Meat:

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup mushrooms
  • 4 sun-dried tomato halves
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon tamari

Mango Salsa:

  • 1 mango, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup peeled, diced cucumber
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped jalapeno
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/3 cup roughly chopped cilantro leaves
  • Salt and pepper


  • Firm lettuce to use as tacos


Take a firm type of lettuce and use the leaves as tacos or wraps. I have used baby Romaine or Napa cabbage before.

For the nut meat, mix all the ingredients in a food processor until you have a chunky mixture with the consistency of ground taco meat. Try it and add spices according to your taste.

Put all of the ingredients of the mango salsa in a bowl and toss it around so the flavours mix well. You can make this a little ahead of time to let it marinade and let flavours soak in.

To serve, place a lettuce leave on your plate, top with walnut meat, mango salsa and optional guacamole.

What do yoga and the woods have in common?

18 Jun


As the weather warms, it’s no question that summer is just around the corner – you can feel it coming now – finally! 

But with great weather, comes great responsibility – you have the responsibility not to waste it of course!
That’s why the Nectar Yoga Retreat in Georgian Bay might be the perfect weekend for you – it will be your chance to get outside, wander in the woods, scout out some furry friends or go frolic on the beach.
Did you know that spending time in nature is actually crucial for good health?  I’m sure you’ve at one point been soothed by the sound of the wind in the trees during a long walk or have been moved by the beauty of a snow-capped mountain.  Who wouldn’t enjoy an evening watching the sunset on a beach, sand between your toes with the rhythmic ocean waves lapping at the shore?
Experiencing these profound moments of peace, happiness, or wellness in the context of nature is a universal event, and it demonstrates that contact with nature is an integral part of our well-being as humans.

At the Nectar Yoga Retreat, yoga and detoxifying will be the focus – but the weekend offers so much more with the chance to explore 3000 acres of provincial land, so you can walk barefoot in the grass or maybe even catch a deer or two peeking in your window.
It will be a great time to ditch your desk, leave the office and swap florescent lights for that warm summer sun.
Learn more about the Nectar Yoga Retreat in Georgian Bay, Ontario here.
We hope you’ll join us July 25-27th.
