Food for Thought

Food warms the soul and the stomach! As a Bronx native I’m very well aware of the tourist trap that many people visiting New York are caught in. Well this foreigner is gladly getting trapped in Copenhagen and all her food options! What I was pleasantly surprised about while being a guest in a homogenous country is the different food options. I appreciate and understand that authentic food is a difficult craft to master especially if it’s a different culture. Well the K is home to people of many diverse backgrounds and the food tastes delicious!

Just a heads up. Eating out is ridiculously expensive here in Denmark. You’ll be hard pressed to find a Dane without lunch from home. That’s because well there’s a massive tax on fast food here (also considered a ‘sin tax’) which encourages people to live healthier lifestyles! I’m very tempted to eat out for lunch especially because of the massive academic gaps in my schedule and sometimes I do treat myself! However being here has helped me appreciate the value of cooking meals for yourself more often! There’s a sense of accomplishment that comes along with cheffing it up in the kitchen!

I’m very physically active so I’m somewhat self conscious about what I’m eating. I use to get really annoyed whenever I broke my diet when I wasn’t suppose to. Mannnnn, I started throwing that out the window because I have to reward my body and tastebuds for being so good to me. Plus I’m in incredible shape and a little something here and there won’t kill me!

Tell me that doesn’t look great! When I get back to the states I do want to cook more often for myself and others! It’s a great life skill to have and a great way to save money! Eating is a great way to connect with others. A snack needs to have a snack feel me?

Peace love and happiness as always!

    Just out of curiosity – have you tried the ryebread?

    I enjoy reading these blogs from DIS students – it is very enjoyable to see my own country experienced through the stories you share – so thank you.

    Kind regards,

      Yes, I have tried the ryebread and I’m a huge fan! I find Danish food choices to be quite interesting and wholesome in a way. Thanks so much for taking the time to read my blog! I’ve never blogged before however I think it’s a wonderful outlet to reflect and share our thoughts and ideas with others!
