4 years ago, i went to an european vacation. It totally change my eating habit. I started drinking more water (and like it), i had a hearty meal at breakfast and the most amazing thing, i didn't eat any carb at breakfast! i ate a medium meal at lunch and at souper i ate little.
After that, my old eating habit came back and i have less energy. I miss that happy feeling to eat something the moment i wake up and liking water!
Do you know what do they usually serve at breakfast in hotels? i totally forgot. I plan to cook it at home :)
plz no pancake, i never saw them in any european hotel i went to. and the cereal were sugar-free. I did an experiment and it took A LOT of sugar to create the same taste as frosted flakes.
When I went to germany for work I ate the best breads at breakfast. They were dark with a lot of different seeds in them.. Freshly made loaves cut at the table.. I miss that. The bread in the US is usually so plain with too much air and no flavor. Their cream for the coffee is so rich.. It's got such a rich color, texture and flavor. I did stay in a relatively small town so everything was probably more traditional. Deli meats, hard boiled eggs, yogurts (most likely plain).. I also lived in Spain for 9 years as a toung teenager but I honestly don't remember ever having anything special for breakfast. I know you said no carbs, but that was my experience...
I know you said no carbs but most hotels I have stayed at in Europe have always served carb heavy foods for breakfast such as bread, pastries, pancakes/crepes etc. They also usually serve eggs, sausages, cheeses, greek yogurt and fruits. There are also a variety of cereal options like muesli or granola.
I agree with noon, most of the hotels I have stayed in served pretty carb-heavy breakfasts. Most Germans eat pretty carb-heavy for breakfast anyway???
These are "typical things" that Germans eat for breakfast:
- breakfast rolls (like kaiser rolls, just a bit different)
- butter, jam, honey, nutella
- meats (processed and non)
- dark breads
- Quark / Curd (??) with jam
- oatmeal / muesli
