Message from Ali:

Since late May of 2016, I have experimented with living a vegetarian lifestyle to see how I feel with that. So far, it has been a great experience. I have more energy and less joint pain, which is critical to my Lindy hop lifestyle!

It has been a full year that I have been struggling with an inflammation in my elbow joint. This pain has held me back from doing the physical and dance training I wanted to do, so I was looking to see if a diet change could help me overcome this problem. After only a few weeks, I started to experience more mobility in my hip joints and reduced inflammation pain in my elbow. Today, I’m back on track with my fitness training, doing the exercises I could not do for a year because of the pain I had.

The challenge

What took me a bit to figure out is what to eat in order to get all the nutrients and especially protein from a vegetarian diet that I feel I need as an active Lindy hopper. I was excited to learn that some of the vegetarian foods actually have a lot more protein than the meat I was eating. Now, I’m making even faster progress in my training because I both have the nutrients and protein I need AND I don’t eat food that causes inflammation and fatigue.

I also felt that reducing how much meat I eat is an important step towards a better environment, animal care as well as my own health and longevity.

However, it’s not always easy to understand how an active Lindy hopper can get enough protein and energy from a vegetarian lifestyle. This is why we want to do the following for you:

What you get

We are preparing a menu for the full week that shows you how easy it is for you to get all the nutrients and protein you need in an active environment such as SwingSummit with only vegetarian food.

Each meal – breakfast, lunch and dinner – will be accompanied by a nutritional fact sheet so that you can learn more about the food you take in.
The main dishes will also come with a recipe that you can take home so you can make the same meals at home if you want to.

By taking care of your food experience for the full week, we hope to inspire you to improve your health and do good for the environment and animals by simply reduce your meat consumption when you also get back home.

But what if I really need meat?

That’s absolutely no problem!
To ensure that you get what YOU feel your body needs, we will expand the self-service kitchen/shop with various kind of meat, protein powder, protein bars, eggs and other food that can give you an additional boost when you feel you want that extra hit.

Please note that this kitchen is separate from the regular meal program. The items in this kitchen will be priced at purchase price.

The main food includes breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, coffee and tea so this kitchen is really just an extra something.
