What kind of eating habits should be cultivated abroad? Do you cook for yourself, eat in the school cafeteria, or eat out? Which is more healthy, affordable, and convenient?

As a Chinese, I don’t think foreign food is suitable for dinner every day. Once in a while, eating too much will cause discomforts, such as malnutrition, obesity, or stomach discomfort. So, I think cooking by myself is a good choice. Although the cost of buying food is relatively high and it takes time to cook, I have a strong sense of achievement. You can also make every meal you eat well and ensure balanced nutrition.

在不同的国家都有不同的饮食文化，在中国,有“早吃好，午吃饱，晚吃少”的习惯，且食物总要先加热。在美国，常见的午餐以冷食为主，如麦片、沙拉、三明治等，晚餐才是一天中最重要的。所以很多中国学生会不习惯。国外会有一些中餐馆提供符合中国口味的美食。或者还可以通过一些外卖软件来选购自己喜欢的菜品，比如说food panda， take away。如果想要节约生活费的话，可以选择超市的一些速食或者购买一些炊具自己加工来提高自己的生活质量。这个网址详细的介绍了不同国家可能会存在的一些饮食差异：https://wenku.baidu.com/view/d4b7c6397175a417866fb84ae45c3b3567ecddc4.html
Different countries have different food cultures. There is a habit of “eat early, full lunch, and less evening” in China, and the Chinese always heat the food before eating. In the United States, typical lunches are mainly cold foods, such as cereals, salads, sandwiches, etc. Dinner is the most important of the day. So many Chinese students are not used to it. Moreover, there are also some Chinese restaurants abroad that provide food that meets Chinese tastes. Or students can use some takeaway software to buy favourite dishes, such as food panda, takeaway. If students want to save living expenses, they can choose some fast food in the supermarket or buy some cooking utensils to process themselves in order to improve the quality of life. This website details some of the dietary differences that may exist in different countries:https://wenku.baidu.com/view/d4b7c6397175a417866fb84ae45c3b3567ecddc4.html

Most Chinese students studying abroad cook by themselves. There may be economic reasons for this, as well as personal tastes and habits. If you live in or near a big city, it’s more convenient because there are so many different kinds of food and vegetables to suit Chinese tastes. But there are also Chinese stores in smaller cities, which typically stock their food on a specific day of the week, so if you check out that day, you can get fresh ingredients at that time of the week.

Many international students are not used to the eating habits of foreign countries. It may be acceptable to occasionally eat foreign fast food and western food, but long-term domestic eating habits are difficult to change. For example, many foreigners are accustomed to drinking ice water, but we are used to drinking warm water. If you force yourself to drink ice water, it may damage your digestive system (such as the stomach). In addition, a teacher who used to study abroad mentioned to me that it is beneficial to buy a multi-function rice cooker before going to study overseas. Because foreign rice cookers can only cook rice, domestic rice cookers can cook various delicacies, such as soup. Therefore, students with a reasonable budget can buy a rice cooker before going abroad to study.

If you are abroad, I recommend cooking by yourself. First of all, I can ensure the safety of food to avoid illness. Medical expenses abroad are relatively high. Secondly, cooking by yourself can greatly reduce the cost of living. Generally, a normal meal costs several hundred dollars, so if possible, cooking by yourself will save money. 在国外的话，我建议还是自己做饭。首先，我能够保证食品的安全性从而避免生病。国外的医疗费是比较高的。其次，自己做饭能够大大减少生活成本。一般一次正常的餐饮都要几百刀，所以如果可能的话，自己做饭会更省钱。

According to some experience from overseas students I know, it is necessary to learn about cooking Chinese food by yourself before going abroad, especially to European and American countries. Actually, the big difference in eating habits dooms that the students who can completely be used to western food are the minority. In this case, Chinese food can help you to eliminate the sense of discomfort and fear of the strange environment to some extent, then you can concentrate more on your study. Besides this, you can try all kinds of new food in your free time to enrich your dishes.

The Chinese have their own eating habits, and students living abroad may not be able to adapt to the local diet, and may even get sick due to this. Therefore, cooking is the choice of many international students. Especially considering the cost issue, most international students cannot eat in restaurants often. Doing it yourself is also a good way to save living expenses.
