Put yourself in a completely different culture for a month and you start to develop some wild cravings. Some of these cravings have come out of nowhere.
My current diet consists of:
Breakfast: Strawberry yogurt, water
Snack: Americano from Emma’s
Lunch: Kimbap (think sushi), water, fun size candy bar
Dinner: Ramen noodles with kimchi or mixed veggies and eggs.
Eat that for a month straight and you start to develop cravings for:
sour dough or multi-grain bread, REAL cheese (think gouda, swiss, or aged cheddar), fruit (it’s very expensive here), home brewed coffee, peanut butter, dill pickles, asparagus, and red wine? Not all in one meal, of course. Really simple, right? Wrong. From what I’ve discovered so far, if I can find this stuff at all, it’s pretty expensive.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my Korean food. So this is when they say: “you can’t have your cake and eat it too…”
stupid opportunity cost theories. 😛
