Solar Springs Bundanoon – The Food

January 24, 2011 · 8 comments

With 211 photos to look through, I’ve decided you can hear about my week away at Solar Springs bit by bit. And of course we start with important things, like the food :D

Breakfasts

There were more fruits on offer in a fruit salad, but I stuck to red fruit faves!

Most mornings had a warm dish on offer – scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, piklets (had that!), tomato/mushrooms etc… but most mornings with my egg phobias, I stuck to porridge with fruit salad, and a little yoghurt. Made more exciting with the addition of pepitas and sunflower kernels. There was toast, spreads, muesli and cereal also on offer. All awesome fuel for a day of bushwalking and gym sessions!

Lunch

Each day, there was a warm option, along with salads galore and fresh breads. With fruit to follow. Most days I simply loaded up on the salads, and filled up on those. Enough to get me to dinner, regardless!

Dinner

Solar Springs Bundanoon, Jan 2011

Three course dinners at the Health Retreat? I’m in! There was a slight overload of potatoes, which was weird given I’m told all the time to not eat too much white potato as it’s higher GI and no good for me ;) Apparently, though, one of the nearby towns is a potato community, so at least we were eating local produce? (or not eating it, as the case may be!). There was also more meat than I expected, but like all things, it was a little exercise in portion control that some succeeded at more than others!

Tea and Coffee

Yes, there was coffee available at the retreat, but it was cheap and not for me, but there was a selection of herbal teas on offer which I drank day and night, and a cook coffee shop down the road – the Bicycle Cafe – which had awesome coffee :) Escaped there a couple of times in the week. I also had a so-so coffee at the Fitzroy Falls National Park visitors centre (it didn’t need sugar, so it wasn’t too bad!).

Fruit Basket

There was a fruit basket for those who got peckish between meals, which I’m pleased to say I wasn’t – I had an awesome plum on recommendation of one of the trainers… yum!

Do all these yummy foods appeal to you? Along with not needing to plan meals, or make decisions beyond which salads do I want? Yeah, me too! :)

Zomg! Oh, I hope I get to go somewhere like this at some point in my life! So glad you were well-nourished, my dear! And woot for porridge-y goodness, even if there was no nut butter on top ;)

The porridge was great :) the seeds made up for the nut butter ;)

For half the price of Golden Door, I’d say so to Solar!
