Today is the National Day of Belgium, which celebrates the anniversary of Leopold I taking his oath as the country's first king on July 21, 1831. I was a little surprised to find out that Belgians don't really eat waffles for breakfast. It's more of a snack (or touristy breakfast). Instead, Belgians typically eat bread products with marmalades, sliced meats and cheeses, nut spreads like Nutella, and, this is when you have to love them, just a straight-up bar of chocolate.
