Planning Your Meals And Leisure Time
Eating is one of life’s pleasures and eating well is essential when on a skiing holiday. You will be burning lots of energy and using muscles you may not use daily in your everyday life.
Make sure you plan some good hearty meals that are warming, filling and full of slow-release energy. Porridge and oats are a perfect choice and fit the bill wonderfully as a warming and filling meal. Add some sweetness with some chopped up fruit, and you have a meal that should keep you going for a few hours.
You will need to take snacks with you, so pack yourself some dehydrated meats like jerky, some protein or sports bars or trail mix bars. All of these can help you maintain your energy whilst out skiing.
You need a meal packed full of lean proteins in the evening to help your muscles recover after the day’s exertions. Eggs, fish, chicken and turkey are perfect options, and you can pair them with your choice of veggies and sides.
If you are planning on cooking for yourself, you need to ensure you have everything you need with you or that you can source these foods locally. If not, then book a campsite or caravan park with plenty of restaurant and food options on-site, so you can have a good meal in the evenings before heading back to your camp to relax and sleep.
