Okay, now the important stuff – food! Specifically, what I ate in Copenhagen. If you are interested in the places I visited and things I saw you can read: part 1 here, and part 2 here. There are a few pretty awesome things.
But I’m sure most of you are more interested in what I ate 😛 And what better way to present it than in the form of a What I Ate Wednesday post? This is not everything I ate, as of course, I didn’t photograph it all – wasn’t a priority!
Jenn’s “Love Your Veggies” challenge is still going on, and don’t worry – I most certainly didn’t forget about it.
Breakfast at the airport – one of my pre made oatmeal mixes. Made with hot water, added some banana slices.
Green juice! (veggies!) Copenhagen has a ton of juice bars, and they’re not terribly pricey compared to some I’ve come across in NYC. This was exactly what I needed as a midday pick-me-up after a long morning of travel.
Also got a super filling vegan sandwich – hummus, cucumber, avocado and olives on a seeded bread. They pressed it in a panini maker, and it was crunchy and toasty and delicious. Also kept me full for more than 3 hours!
Dinner that night – I found a super cheap bagel place that had an awesome salad bar. I got a box with root veg and potatoes, broccoli, mixed greens, salmon, and some other stuff I don’t remember. Fun fact, this was probably the least expensive meal my entire trip – and it was the most veggie filled and satisfying.
I mentioned that there was this famous Danish bakery. I had to try it once.
Afternoon snack – a cinnamon swirl danish, and a coffee. Holy sugar overload this was amazing. Also, it tasted real – not like a store-bought pastry with overly processed ingredients. Still, I remember why I don’t eat these things on a regular basis.
Huge mediterranean dinner – the vegetarian plate. It was quite good for what I paid – I got 2 pita breads on the side as well. I was surprised at the quality for a not so great looking place.
Remember how I mentioned that I found a froyo place? Well I had to indulge – I don’t know when the next chance I get for froyo will be. The smallest size original tart (!) with chocolate/nut mix. Hit.the.spot.
I decided I needed a really lunch (froyo didn’t cut it) so I got myself a green smoothie! Yes, there was a stand at the food hall that sold them. This one even had broccoli and a whole orange in it! And was probably the best green smoothie I’ve ever tasted. It also had spinach and rose hip – so I have no idea how to recreate this one, but it was such a good balance of flavors!
I also snacked on the fruit, nuts, and other things that I brought along – and pretty much finished them all. I eat a lot, apparently. I got breakfast at the hostel one day as well, where they had fantastic freshly baked breads – I definitely had a few too many carb-y treats, which has left me with a serious sugar craving these past few days. But, I made sure to keep eating tons of veggies, so as not feel completely sick to my stomach by the end of the trip.
How does your veggie intake change when you travel?
