For many people, holidays are a time not only to relax but also to try out new things. That applies not only outdoor activities but also to new eating habits. From organic ingredients to intermittent fasting, alpine herbs to tasty seeds – Tirol is a great place to find motivation and inspiration for a healthier lifestyle.
More vitamins, new flavours, regional produce, organic ingredients – people who are keen on healthy eating often try to combine these factors in their dining habits. Tirol is home to an increasing number of hotels, guesthouses and restaurants that have also committed to these principles by using the best produce from the region to create delicious, inventive meals which will tantalise your taste buds and keep you fit and healthy.
Despite its traditional focus on meat, Tirol's cuisine today has plenty to offer fans of vegetarianism. Cheese dumplings and sweet treats like "Kaiserschmarrn", a thick pancake chopped into pieces, sprinkled with icing sugar and served with apple sauce, are hugely among the most popular dishes in Tirol. Fasting is also a growing trend, with several hotels offering special fasting programmes to help you achieve your goals – from flushing out toxins from the body and strengthening the immune system to losing weight and pursuing the Ayurveda philosophy.
