How will the food be while I’m on the program?
BEYOND BORDERS programs include 3 meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner). These meals are vegetarian, nutritious, non-spicy and cooked at our facilities by BEYOND BORDERS cooks. BEYOND BORDERS provides only vegetarian (mostly Indian) cuisine while on the program primarily for health and hygiene reasons; variable quality of meat and hot spices used for preparing curries can often lead to indigestion and sometimes serious gastrointestinal problems. There are a variety of excellent options for dining out close to most program sites where participants who need their fix of meat can enjoy a meal. Eggs are sometimes a part of the BEYOND BORDERS menu. Vegan meals and special dietary plans can be customized by BEYOND BORDERS staff provided the requests are sent to us at least 1 month prior to the participant’s arrival into India.
