This post is going to be a bit more relaxed and informal compared to my usual ones. First off, I won’t be writing about any sort of travel tips, but merely reflecting upon my childhood and the hotel that gave me the inspiration for this website. Alexandra Inn (same as my name) was the first hotel my parents ever took me too. If you haven’t read my story, be sure to check out my About Page.
The owner’s were the kindest people on Earth and always delivered the best breakfast. As I reflect back, I am able to see that they were way ahead of their time with regards to health. I was visiting the hotel as a kid in the late 80s and early 90s; no one mentioned much about healthy diets back then. Despite that, the Alexandra Inn hotel owners had an amazing selection of lean protein items.
Oatmeal with Protein Powder
I was stunned to find out that protein powder existed back in the late 80s. The hotel owners actually were putting protein powder in the oatmeal–unbelievable. They were so far ahead of their time it is amazing!
They had a fact sheet about how great eggs were for delivering protein. Sure, it isn’t protein powder, but eggs are simply the best when it comes to protein supplementation. I have to hand it to the Alexandra Inn owners–they were light years ahead of the rest.
And they serve as my ultimate purpose to help people eat and live better on the road. I will be back in the next few weeks to share some of my favorite travel tips. If you have any suggestions, please send me an email using the contact form.
