Day 51-Nutritional Bite

Diets Around the World- Germany
The Melander family of Bargteheide, Germany spends 375.39 Euros or $588.75 for one week of food. Germans tend to eat ample portions of meat and bread. Pork, beef, and poultry are the main varieties of meat consumed in Germany, with pork being the most popular. Frankfurt, Germany is known as the home of the sausage or Wüstchenins. The U.S. hot dog is similar to the Wüstchenin and coined the "frankfurter" after the German city. Germany produces more than 1500 types of sausage and more than 300 types of bread. Some Germans eat potatoes with pears, bacon, and beans known as birnen, bohnen und speck. The most popular vegetables are potatoes, cabbage, carrots, turnip, spinach and beans. Organic food has gained an approximate market share of 3.0% and is predicted to be an increasing trend. A popular saying in Germany is: "Breakfast like an emperor, lunch like a king, and dine like a beggar." Breakfast is usually a selection of cereals and jam or honey with bread. Some Germans eat cold meats or cheese with bread for breakfast. The national drink is beer with consumption per person declining but still among the highest in the world. The obesity rate was 12.9% in 2003 and 13.6% in 2005, which is fairly low compared to other countries.

Sugar Preacher's Experience

When I was in Germany, I indulged at the pastry shops. If I return, I'll be visiting the organic food markets as a sugar shunner. The last few days, I have been craving sugar. I made chocolate bonbons with brown rice syrup, and my cravings were satisfied. I like the German saying "Breakfast like an emperor, lunch like a king, and dine like a beggar." It probably contributes to the low obesity rate.

I went to school in Germany, and the picture looks about right, except I'd see a lot of families getting bottles of juices, like orange juice, and then mixing it with wasser mit gas (water with gas) as a juice drink. German food is pretty hearty, but you don't see many overweight kids there. Of the traditional german faire, I ate a lot of schnitzel, wurst, rotkraut, and spetzel, and a vast assortment of breads (often mit nuss, or nutella). Also, as far as fast food goes, Turkish kababs selling doeners (similar to a gyro) are really popular.
