Traveling to Mumbai, How to Eat Safely
Posted by lgchristianson at 04/27/2013
Next weekend I'm traveling to Mumbai on business and will be there two weeks. I will most likely be very busy the first week so won't do much other than working and then back to the hotel. I didn't do my homework as far as getting shots for Hep A, B or malaria. Too late for that now.
I try to avoid all medications and don't even consider an aspirin unless I really have pain. I'm not a total vegetarian by any stretch but avoid all dairy and red meat. Usually make an organic green smoothy for breakfast every day. Just looking for some tips to avoid getting ill...
You should be fine as long as you stay away from street food, raw salads, and uncooked fruits & veggies (unless you peel them yourself). I was really ill in India once and you don't want to get sick there. I wrote a little article on tips for staying healthy, here:

Also, call the airline more than 24 hours before the flight to make sure your vegan meal is reserved.
