Breakfast~~

Post by Xavia » Tue May 23, 2006 7:40 am

What do you usually have for breakfast?
You'd better tell us where you are from.Ok!
I'm the first!
I'm a Chinese,living in North China.
I usually have porridge,eggs,bread,etc.Sometimes I have noddles,dumpling,as well as some I can't write them down in English.
Now it's your turn!

Just a mug of warm milk with Nesquick. I am just not hungry when I get up. Sometimes I also have a magdalene but only because I don't wanna feel hungry before lunch.

I know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I also know the rule that says "have a king's breakfast, a princess lunch and a vagabond dinner" but I just can't eat anything for breakfast. Maybe it is because I was raised that way. Just a mug of milk.

By the way, Xavia, i see that sometimes you have noodles for breakfast. Do you have rice, too?

When I was in Beijing, noodles and rice were part of the Chinese breakfast (there were two types of breakfast: Western and Chinese). I was astonished when I saw it the first day, because I usually have noodles or rice for dinner here in Europe when I go to a Chinese restaurant.

Thanks for your attention!
Actually, you can eat whatever you want if you have enough time.
Yes, in some parts of China people also eat rice at breakfast.Rice can be cooked with egg, sausage, fruit, meat or something else.Delicious!

I'm Vietnamese, too :D
H m m, I often eat " pho " ( have you ever heard about this before? ) . It's also my favorite dish :D .
Of course, a glass of milk is necessary in my breakfast.
But sometimes, I want to change other dishes, such as: cereal, instant noodle and so on.

well, if you are a student and away from home for universty and there is nobody to prepare you a breakfast, it is usually a waste of time in the mornings. everyday i have lessons very early in the morning and i can sleep for at least twenty minutes more instead of having a regular breakfast!! god, it has been for months since i last had a real breakfast :( ..

What's with all the breakfast topics? It's taking over EC.

A typical western breakfast consists of some of the following, not all:

Ham
Eggs (Easy-over is the best)
Sausages
Bacon
Bread/Toast with jam/butter/peanut butter
Hash Browns
Milk
Juice
Coffee
Tea
Last night's left-overs

And pretty much anything else.

Hi!Pal
~I'm from CHINA,too.
I always breakfast on porridge,bread,boiled eggs,milk and so forth. Although porridge is nutritious,I don't like eating it.It tastes considerably weak.

Really? For breakfast? In any case, we have them for lunch, not breakfast. Especially because my personal breakfast consists in just a mug of milk, like I said above :roll:

I'm glad that you joined the topic.
At first, it's just a task given by my English teacher. I want to improve my poor English, but now I find another meaning of doing so.
I agree with the idea that no matter what you have for breakfast, you just enjoy yourself!

italian breakfast

Post by funnygirl » Wed Jul 19, 2006 2:09 pm

Hello,
I come from Italy and, for me, breakfast is a very important part of the day.
My friends don't like breakfast in fact they drink only a coffee and they resist all the day.
For me is very important because, if I don't eat I feel very tired!
So... I usually eat milk or tea with biscuits, or brioche or... crispbreads with Nutella!
:D

Tea,olives,cheese ,tomatoes, cucumber and egg are generally the basic participants of the breakfast in my country.In fact it changes from region to region.Some of them can even eat chicken at breakfast!!
However in brief words,our breakfast is light.I like it!!

i cannot believe that local people eat rice and something like that for breakfast when i just been to singapore.because it is too greasiness and in most time i don't feel hungry in the morning.so i usually go to supermarket or seven-eleven to buy something that steamed and soy milk or milk around 8am.

i am from Vietnam too,
for a long time i have had no chance to enjoy my beloved food. and now just simply i really miss it
sometimes i try to cook the noodle with beef by myself, but i have never found it delicious enough as i used to in Hanoi, although i have read some papers about how to exactly do it.

Hi!
I am from Indonesia.
I usually have rice and fry egg for breakfast. Sometimes i drink a glass of "Milo" from nestle. My mom say that is not good for someone to eat too much in breakfast. But in other way, we must have breakfast. It's also good for someone in diet program. Breakfast could resist feeling of hunger, maybe 1 or 2 hour before lunch time.

In Italy we are not used to eat sausages, eggs, porridge, etc. for breakfast, even if I think it's a right way of starting one's day (one gets energy and has a lot of time ahead for digestion).
I usually have just a cappuccino and toast with honey/jam.

Hi,
My freind have been to China and Thiland many times, and he told me he usually took breakfast outside, there were many moving restaurants (sorry I don't know a precise word). Compared to those shop in Japan, it's so
reasonable, quickly served and tasty. I envy him
Back to myself, I usually eat fruits, yogult, rice and milk. I have no time to make a big brekfast but I try to milk products or fiver rich food.

Hi friends,

At México there are some basic elements in the breakfast: orange juice, milk, egss, bread, cofee, fruit.
Now, because of the stress to live in the principal city (México City),people usually do combination of this elements. Example:Mix mil with fruit and an egg in the licuator and drink (breakfast for students)
Drink a cofee, a donut or a sandwich while you go to the office,in the car, on the street., etc.
Brakfast for workers:Drink "Atole" (milk with chocolate or any other flavor) and a "Tamal" or eat "tacos" on the street.
After that "important" meal mexican people eat whatever they can, while the lunch hour came.

Elba brakfast:
06:00 am Orange juice and an all bran bar
10:00 am begettable, yougurt or milk, eggor cheese
12:00 fresh cucumber with lemmon
15:30 lunch: chicken or fish or cheese, vegetables
17:00 hot tea with lemmon
21:00 More hot tea with lemmon, milk a sandwich or cheese or only fruit like wattermelon, grapes, apricot, or something tht contain enough part of juice.

OMG I´m hungry all the time
2 l of watter.
