If you’re wondering where the term “spa cuisine” comes from, you may have already guessed—it comes from the spa experience. Imagine you’ve spent a luxurious day relaxing in mud baths and hot springs and getting a massage. You would naturally work up a hunger. So spas and retreat centers often have restaurants or cafes that offer healthy, detoxifying foods and drinks. Nourishing and delicious, they can even help you shed a few of those extra pounds.
