My favorite meal is lunch because we eat different foods every day

Submitted by Crystal Jeon...@''' on Tue, 06/13/2023 - 10:46

My favorite meal is lunch . Do you know why? The answer is really simple . My mum always cooks many different kinds of curries for lunch . My family rarely has breakfast together , but we always have lunch together . So , I'm happy with having lunch .
My mum usually cooks at least four dishes for lunch . She cooks meat curry ( especially beef and pork ) , vegetable salad or fried vegetables , chili pound and soup . Beef is my family's most favorite and we cook it in many ways like fried beef , beef salad , beef soup and sometimes beef steak . Plus our lunch can't be perfect without chili pound or fried chili because everyone in my family likes spicy taste . I enjoy my lunch happily with my family everyday . So , I can't lose somehow such a enjoyable lunch time .

Thanks for reading guys. I'm from Myanmar and You ?

I enjoy every meal I have, because it is important and useful for my body and brain. From my experience when I eat food that I don't like, I feel that that meal doesn't make my day.

I enjoy every meal I have. I am thankful to have food to eat.
I love healthy food and I occasionally have junk food.
Healthy food keeps my body and brain fit whilst junk food gives me fat and a lot of carbs and sugar.

Hi everyone! My favourite meal is breakfast, too. I alway have it with my parents and twinsis Gwen. I was mostly having breakfast at half past five in the morning when we had to going to school. My school always starts at 7.30 am and ends at 12.55. Than I was having electives and other activities, such as foreign languages ​​and music school. But of course is different now, because we have school at distance in Germany. I usually wake up at 6. am and have breakfast at 6.30. Then I go for a walk with Gwen for a half an hour. Than we preparing for each school day in school at distance. For breakfast I eat a bread spreaded with butter and marmelade or muffins, sometimes also pancakes. I usually drink cacao or white coffee. Hardlyever I drink tea or homemade juice, too. Our family always has a fruit in basket on the table for breakfast and hole day. We also talk during breakfast. I like it.

Actually I like an English breakfast very much, but I don't have it often. Every morning I eat some cereal with boiled eggs and a few pieces of cheese. Sometimes I eat sweet cereal with some honey and dried fruits. For my lunch I eat some soup. For my dinner I eat some fish or meat with salad. As you see my food is very simple and healthy.

My favourite meal is lunch. I can eat rice, beans and 'farofa'. In the lunch time, all people in my house eat together. It's very nice. We talk about what we did and what we'll do after. Sometimes I cook for my family. I'm not a great cook, but the meal I cook is enough to get by.
