today was my very first day of work in denmark! so obviously i did not have caramelized onions on oatmeal for breakfast. i got the idea from tea & cookies and though it is really healthy, filling, and amazing, i would rather not subject my new colleagues to my onion breath all day. on that note, i am brainstorming about what kind of lunch i can take to work. of course most of the other nurses just ate the typical danish lunch of rugbrød and pålægs stuff like cheese slices and shrimp spread while i brought a lazy meal of chickpeas with olive oil, pepper, and tomato sauce. that's IT. ever since i learned to cook a bit more seriously i have really been laying it on thick at home with garlic, chilies, seaplants... since i eat those 'aromatic' ingredients fairly often, the only way i found out that my polite roommates didn't appreciate the smell was through the grapevine. so now i am pretty paranoid about stank-ass kimchi breath especially when i am leaning in close to a patient. x:
besides salads and sandwiches, what kinds of healthy, filling (preferably meatless) lunches won't make the doctors recoil in horror when i want to discuss a patient with them?
