Cheap Food in Stockholm

Hey peeps! Some of you may know and some may not, but as a student in Sweden we can have tons of discounts on many things, one of them is on food! But why food and discounts are the subject from this post today? Well, using hard data from the Swedish Environment Protection Agency, Swedes generated in 2012 around 127 kg/person of food waste.

Panini Internazionale, offers a variety of salads, paninis, wraps and other things extremely delicious! (well, I do like the food here). The good part is that not only you can find their offer quite tasty, but that they have some pretty good and healthy meals too… sad part, it is not so friendly for a low-budget student; I’m taking about 100 SEK salads, for example…

BUT WAIT!!! DON’T GO!!!! There’s a good part also… as a student… in the last hour before closing, all stores offer all of their products already displayed with a 70% discount! YES 70% DISCOUNT showing your student id (phone or card)!

With this strategy food that could have ended up as waste, now ends up on your table ready to be eaten! Let’s remember that there’s still a fight against world hunger so let’s be aware of what we eat and how much we can actually eat. Prevention is always the best way to cut our waste! Here some pics of what I bought today for 57 SEK (normal price 190 SEK).

Suscribe and don’t forget to share! Until next time, peeps!

Quick Tip!

Do you believe in Karma? I do! And it’s fantastic! No peeps, I’m not talking about the consequences the universe will be throwing at you for cheating on your bf/gf, I’m talking about Karma, Swedish app that helps to reduce the food being wasted. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO):

Roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year — approximately 1.3 billion tonnes — gets lost or wasted.

But whats the magic part with this app? By using karma, you’ll get the chance to be in contact with restaurants, bakeries, and other food stores that will offer you huge discounts at an specific time and place of the day for their surplus of food, saving significant amounts of products going to the trash (e.g. sandwiches, muffins, cakes, etc). Here is a screen capture of how the pages looks 😀

Unfortunately, Karma comes with a price; the price of having a Swedish bank account, thus you must have also a personal number (really complicated system in here, right?). Why? Cause the app is only in the Swedish app store (at least for iPhone). Feeling wild? Ask a Swedish friend to lend his/her credit card! Haha tell them is for a good cause!

Do you have any app like this in your country? Remember to follow and comment! 😀
