I will be traveling at a the end of the week to Switzerland for only 4 days (Leave Thurs eve/return Tues morn). My nutrition as most know is pretty good. Here with travel out of the country I have some concerns since I am also Kosher and will not have access to the same quality food as I am accustomed to in NYC! I will be staying at a Kosher hotel and will settle for their breakfast of eggs (non omega 3) along with some fruits/veggies based on what is available. I figure I can always buy some nuts/avocado or hope for olive oil.
Lunch and/or dinner will be more iffy I assume. Chicken or fish will definitely not be the best quality and who knows how it will be prepared. From what I hear, this hotel is not restaurant style, rather what is prepared is what is available!!
I plan to take along some wild salmon cans and some sardines too for protein. I have also purchased several of these bars
in the mint version as they do not include nightshades! Any other thoughts or suggestions are welcome. Perhaps pack some hemp protein powder. I am also thinking I may be able to buy some organic kefir while there but am unsure of that too!
I will be in the alps at a high elevation. I have, at least based on email, found a "gym" that has barbells so hopefully I can at least do some squatting while I am there. I am not sure how the IFing will hold up with the elevation. I may try cross country skiing one day but am not sure. (I outgrew downhill and have no intention of doing it anymore now).
My main concerns are handling the elevation and what to pack for nutrition boosts!
