    What did you have for breakfast today?

    Hello.

    The reason I have started this thread is to know more about foreign cuisine.
    The question I am especially curious about is how many eggs does an average Englishman eat?
    It seems that they have them at least for everyday's breakfast
    By the way, doctors recommend eating less than 3 eggs per week because of a lot of cholesterol they contain.
    Fish and chips seems also very popular among British people. I tried it in South Africa and that was very tasty. But fried potatoes is not a health food.

    What about you American and Australian guys ?
    I heard of Americans eating a lot of fast food, however I realize there are people who don't like and even war against it.
    In Australia I heard they hunt kangaroos and eat them
    It must have been a joke .

    For today's breakfast I had a do-it-yourself salad made from raw carrot, beet, apple and grapefruit with smetana, curd with smetana and a cup of green tea. It is not typical breakfast for this country, though.

    Regards, Alex.

    Couldn't you get salmonella or something from raw parrot?

    I had a bowl of cereal for breakfast today. I don't usually take the time to cook eggs or anything during the week.

    Re: What did you have for breakfast today?

    This morning I had two crumpets, one spread with houmous and the other with delicious mushroom paté.

    I normally have two slices of seeded bread with houmous and mushroom paté, or with two hard-boiled eggs sliced on top.

    I very occasionally have cereal - usually a muesli or granola type with dried fruit, nuts and seeds for extra Omega oils, with soya milk.

    I tried houmous but that isn't my sort of thing. Is seeded bread a bread with seeds removed?

    Re: What did you have for breakfast today?

    When I lived permanently in England, I had just a bowl of home-mixed muesli, as did my offspring. My wife usually had the same, with sometimes a slice of toast and marmalade as well.

    Once or twice a month, on a Sunday, we'd have a couple of rashers and a couple of fried eggs each, sometimes followed by toast and marmalade.

    Nowadays, my breakfast is usually just coffee and nicotine, though in winter I sometimes have a bowl of porridge.

    You forgot the sausage in the meat items.

    Non-egg items include pancakes, waffles, and French toast. We had French toast yesterday.

    The traditional English breakfast is not something most people have every day. I eat it about three times a year.

    I had coffee, mangosteen and some toasted rye and oat bread.

    My brother introduced me to crumpet with houmous when I was last in the UK- a good combination.

    Re: What did you hWave for breakfast today?

    Wow, I have never expected to see what I see, I mean your replies.
    How often do you drink coke? I used to drink it much while being in South Africa.
    Toast and French toast refers to the same thing, is that it?
