Veggie for a week
The food at Swing Summit is completely vegetarian. There will be three meals a day plus a snack in the afternoon. Plenty of legumes and whole grains will be served to make sure you get enough protein.
However, everyone is different and we recommend bringing some nuts and seeds (or a bit of protein powder) if you would like to up your protein intake.
We can accommodate vegans too, do let us know in advance (when filling the registration form) and Marjorie will make separates meal you.
But what if I really need meat?
That’s absolutely no problem. To ensure that you get what your your body needs, we run a self-service kitchen/shop where you can find some meat, eggs, snacks and other foods that can give you an additional boost when you feel you need it.
Please note that this kitchen is separate and this food is not part of the regular meal program. These items will be priced very close to purchase price.
The board includes breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, coffee and tea so this kitchen is really just for the extra little something – like ice cream :).
Each person has a very personal relationship to food. What we enjoy to eat, what we perceive as healthy, nutritious and good quality is not the same for everyone. We appreciate that. To help you understand the food experience at Swing Summit, here is what people have said about the food in our surveys:
“I loved the veggie stuff. I am not a veggie, but: YUM. It is amazing that the kitchen crew produced such quality for such a big group. The only improvement, if any: deserts.”
“Food was great and it’s a meat eater saying it :)”
“I have never eat so good during a dance workshop. It was high quality food. Thanks to Marjorie and her team. ”
“I always miss fruits – but thank you for the fridge”
“I liked the served food, however, I would have expected more proteins in the dishes, given the work our muscles had to do ;-). More legumes, eggs, nuts or tofu for dinner would have been very good.”
“I had to get used to the vegetarian food. I’ve never been hungry, but sometimes I really missed the meat. Marjorie did however a marvellous job.” stub content goes here
“Food was good. Carrot cake was amazing. Lasagna/ parmigiana too. Porridge at breakfast kept me bouncing all day”
“I like the idea of having a vegetarian week (not only because i am vegetarian), because the food was tasty and nobody challenged it due to personal likings. Having extra meat is very thoughtful.”
“It would be perfect if we had vegan salty alternatives to cheese at breakfast (houmous, tapenades ?), but I understand that we are a few vegans at the camp. More fruits would be great too. If it could be not too expensive, organic food would be welcome.”
“I am used to vegan/vegetarian food so it was just great. they made a big effort, even served food for dinner. I also like the buffet so everyone could serve his own. I appreciated the healthy, colourful way they cook. and there was enough for everyone. At home I usually eat more fruits but there where fruits in the shop and at the market. thank you”
“I enjoyed the vegetarian food. Not a big fan of onion and garlic, but it seemed to work. There was Kurkuma in nearly every dish. Snack Time in the afternoon: fruits or something sweet would be nice next year. Fruits were offered only twice in the week (apricots, watermelon).”
“I’m not a vegetarian but the food was overall yummy enough to make me not miss meat at all. There were a few less interesting meals, but that was a matter of personal taste. I would like to have had a bit more variety in the salad (spinach, arugula, watercress are delicious leafy greens), more fruit and a bit more overall protein on the meals. I have no special needs, but sometimes I felt I was eating just carbs. I love them, but my belly collects them like crazy. Also, getting more nets to protect the food from the bugs would be amazing. “
