Featured Blogger: Michele Peterson Shares 8 Detox Secrets from Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita Riviera Maya

At Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resorts, we don’t think feeling healthy should be about sacrifice. It’s our philosophy that wellness extends beyond traditional health, fitness, nutrition and spa approaches, as Toronto-based travel writer Michele Peterson discovered on her trip to Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita Riviera Maya. On her blog, Michele shared her 8 Detox Secrets from Zoëtry Paraiso. After enjoying all that the Cancun Riviera-Maya Wine & Food Festival had to offer, Michele was ready to kick start her own holistic wellness regimen at Zoëtry.

Instead of indulging in frequent cocktails, for example, Michele sipped iced herbal tea. “Chugging three or four glasses of organic tea a day didn’t leave much room for boozy drinks although I did sample a few for research purposes,” she says.

Another tip included eating outdoors to keep portions under control: “Dining on my terrace helped avoid mindless eating while browsing  my iPhone. Executive Chef Antonio Torres’s “green cuisine” philosophy meant plenty of fresh herbs from the resort’s organic garden, big flavors and unprocessed local ingredients. As part of Zoetry’s commitment to Healthy Eating Choices, the menu displayed the calorie, carb and fat content of each dish. Delicious grilled fish vs. pasta most days for me.”

Michele also took advantage of Zoëtry Paraiso’s fitness center and spa during her trip: “After working out in the gym (running on a treadmill while watching the waves break made the time speed by) I headed for a Swedish massage and the Thalasso spa to soak up the beneficial powers of seawater. The water, a warm 27-31C, was so  effervescent it felts like floating in a  glass of bubbly champagne.”
