Food at the Aiki Retreat

There is good food here, but as I anticipated it’s mostly things I don’t eat. (Meat & wheat.) So I’m glad I brought a lot of raw nuts, bananas, and protein bars. There is always a salad bar, and there were scrambled eggs at breakfast. And there’s always coffee and milk. I have it on good authority that one can get tofu and vegetables! I’m going to ask about that tomorrow. The kitchen staff are very helpful! They are glad to check ingredients (sadly, tater tots have wheat in them!), and one of the chefs even filled my ice pack cooler with ice for me today.

Meals have been a great time to relax and connect with people. The atmosphere is universally friendly, including all the instructors. What a privilege and a pleasure to hang out with all these wonderful people!
