''what do you eat in germany?''

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

sometimes people ask me this question
and the answer is actually very simple.
i eat the same things every day.

breakfast: fruit, fruit and fruit.
blackberries (with vanilla soy yogurt), kiwi, oranges and banana.
(sometimes almonds or pine nuts)
yes, this is a lot of sugar.
no, i don't eat all of them at once.
...or at least i try not to.
i asked my friend andy the other day,
''what would you think of me if i only ate fruit and nothing else?''
and he said,
''i would think you'd be diabetic in 4-6 weeks.''




lunch:1 of 2 types of sandwiches,
depending on if i'm eating at school (a packed lunch)
or at home (where i can cook).

my packed lunch consists of
a peanut butter and nutella sandwich
(with or without bananas)
on wheat bread
and.............
......a half liter of milk.
the milk here is sold by the liter
and, embarrassingly enough,
i have to stop myself from drinking the entire bottle.
i am my father's daughter.


if at home,
i will cut 2 slices of this ''vollkornbrot''
and spread honey on both sides
and scramble one egg
with a tablespoon of pesto oil,
a little salt and a lot of pepper,
add 2 slices of swiss cheese
and then make a ''honey-egg&cheese'' sandwich.
and it is so good.

and dinner: spätzle
(this pan is not my portion size)
((i make a whole pan when serving friends))

with the following (not pictured) chopped vegetables:
3 mushrooms, 1 carrot,
1 small can of corn,
1/2 a potatoe, 5 cherry tomatoes, 1/2 an onion,
some broccoli, artichokes,
a little salt and a lot of pepper
and pesto.

i love eating.

Who DOESN'T love eating!!! It's so nice that you're able to find healthy things while in Germany.. while I was there it was hard to not give into a doner and bratwurst diet...
