Nutritional Inspiration in Tulum, with Mikaela Reuben.

Wild Wellness Travel welcomes Mikaela Reuben as our resident Culinary Nutritionist and Health Consultant for our upcoming retreat to Tulum, Mexico, May 21st to 28th.  Her expertise is fusing the science of nutrition with the art of healthy eating and food creation, and has been personal chef to celebrities such as Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, and Woody Harrelson. She has molded a career that inspires people to make better health and food decisions by offering nutrition and health coaching through a personalized approach.

Mikaela’s personal approach to daily nutrition is to make good food decisions and aim to have at least two of your daily meals be healthy, EVERYDAY!  She also stresses the importance of getting outside and having quiet time for yourself.  When travelling, her advice is to plan ahead!  Google healthy restaurants and markets and take snacks and nuts in your bag so you can make healthier choices rather than hasty, unhealthy last-minute decisions.

On travelling for wellness, Mikaela believes that travelling somewhere to drink and over indulge doesn't always feel like a vacation as when you get home you feel like you need another vacation to recover!  Travelling for wellness means that you can focus on feeling good so you feel rejuvenated when you return home.  It's wonderful to fully immerse yourself into a wellness vacation when you are trying to make a change in your life at home!  By doing an intensive program it becomes easier to learn more tools which you can use in daily life.  Wellness travel is a great way to create some sustainable and permanent steps in the right direction. 

Mikaela uses her knowledge of the body and of different cultural healing traditions to empower people to live with happiness and health, in balance and harmony with their true self. It’s not just about food and exercise – Mikaela uses human connection to intuitively meet the needs of her clients.

Her philosophy is rooted in bio-diversity; the understanding that each body is unique and thus has a unique path to optimal health. She believes in trying to help people live better and more fulfilled lives, and that happiness starts in the body. Whether it’s in the form of food, love, or experiences, the choice of what we use to fuel ourselves with will affect who we are.

With Mikaela’s guidance and knowledge, we are assured a successful culinary adventure in Tulum!  To find out more about Tulum and the individual programs we have created for you, check out our link:
