My diet in New Zealand has been an odd combination of food. Most eaten items would have to include sausages, cheeseburgers, ham and cheese sandwiches, pizza, fresh muffins, Cadbury chocolate bars (soooo good), granola bars (specifically a brand called “Bumper Bars”), bananas, ice cream bars/pops, and biscuits (ie. cookies). Not too exciting! Still, there seems to be a demand to see more food photos, so here you go!
As you'll note in the latter one, I've started to delve into self-catering via supermarket shopping. The backpacker buses stop at markets and ATM's daily, and most people eat this way to save money. I realized I need to join them if I'm to be making this travel thing a long term arrangement. So while I tried to avoid instant noodles while saving for my RTW trip, I now find myself eating them abroad. At least the views are great. :)
One last note on food here. Lots of things are marketed as “energy” including the chocolate bars. It seems a bit misleading. Sure, chocolate is a good source of quick energy, however it'll also turn me into a chubby monster if I keep eating it every day. The nutrition labels also list the energy measurements on the food and drinks, not that I really know what it means, other than it seems akin to calories.
