So to say "I eat food" is "Ik eten eten".

No, it should be "Ik eet eten."

Fun fact:

In spanish, the word "comida" (food) happens to be the past participle of the verb "comer" (to eat). So it is possible for spanish speakers to form the sentece "Nosotros comemos comida" (We eat food), but if we translate it literally, it would be "We eat eaten" which sounds almost exactly like one of this sentences in dutch.

Just something I found interesting.
