FitFarms Retreat Spain New Venue

villa 2FitFarms Spain has now been running for 7 years and is extremely popular with returning and new guests. The new site will open on Friday 6th March 2020 and the airport where we collect from is Barcelona.

We started the Spain weight loss and fitness retreats because we had a lot of guests asking for it after they had finished their UK weight loss and fitness retreat programme and understandably because what could be more enjoyable than going through a fun, action packed and challenging programme in the wonderful Spanish weather.

We believe the Spain weight loss and fitness retreat new site is going to be the most popular of all our sites. The main reason for this is the beautiful surrounding country and only be a few minutes drive to the stunning Ginora coastline which hosts some of the best beaches in the Costa Brava region.

The Spain Fitness camp programme always has one sightseeing trip which is mixed in with a famous national walk. The sightseeing trip is going to be Barcelona with the outstanding Gaudi Architecture and before we will be taking the group on a walk with breathtaking scenery where the coastal pine woodland meets the sea.

The accommodation has a real wow factor as it’s set in 200 acres of farmland with stunning countryside scenery. The rooms are large with en suite facilities and the furnishings are neutral with a farmhouse contemporary feel. We will be using the lawned grounds for outdoor activities such as retro sports day and team games which are always fun and challenging.

The first dates are 6th March for the 7 nights retreat and the 8th March for the 5 night retreat and the collection meeting point is Sixt Car Rental hire in the arrivals hall.

 

Weight Loss Retreat Jerk Chicken

This is one of our weight loss retreat classic dishes which we have on every week. The chicken is a complete protein and we serve it with Kale instead of the traditional Caribbean way which is served with rice and peas. The reason for this is that kale contains a lot of fiber, antioxidants, vitamin C, Iron, and vitamin K.

12 chicken thighs with the bone on

1 whole lime halved

FitFarms Weight loss retreat Marinade ingredients 

TBSP ground all spice

3 TBSP of good quality honey

2 TBSP of Coconut or Olive oil

2 TBSP Soy sauce

1 Lime juice

1 TSP of dried thyme

3 scotch bonnet chillies. Remember to take the seeds out to decrease the hip.

1 small onion

3 garlic cloves

Roughly chopped ginger about a thumb size

Spring onions large bunch roughly chopped

1 large bag of kale

 

First of all Dean the FitFarms weight loss retreat chef makes the marinade by putting the spring onions, ginger, onion, chillies, thyme, lime juice, soy sauce, oil, honey and all spice in a food processor and makes a paste.

Then Dean makes a few slashes in the chicken and rubs in the marinade. This is then sealed and left at the top of the fridge overnight.

The next day they are taken out of the fridge and put into an oven at 180 degrees for 45 minutes.

When the chicken is cooking take a large bowl and put a little bit of water and butter in it and bring to the boil. Then add the kale and put a lid on the pot. Let is cook for 7 minutes then toss it so the butter mixes in with the kale.

Put a healthy serving of kale on a plate and place 2 pieces of jerk chicken on the top.
