Meals in Britain


A traditional English breakfast is a very big meal – sausages, bacon, eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms … But nowadays many people just have cereal with milk and sugar, or toast with marmalade, jam or honey. Marmalade and jam are not the same! Marmalade is made of oranges, and jam is made of other fruit. The traditional breakfast drink is tea, which people have with cold milk. Some people have coffee, which is made of just hot water.

Round about 11a.m. some Englishmen who work have their tea or coffee break. They never call it a meal, of course, as they drink their tea or coffee at the office desk or factory bench.

Then, between 12 and 2 there comes lunch time. Most offices and small shops are closed for an hour and the city pavements are full of people on their way to cafes. For many people lunch is a quick meal. In cities there are a lot of sandwich bars, where office workers can choose the kind of bread they want – brown, white or roll – and then all sorts of salads and meat or fish to go in the sandwich. Pubs often serve good cheap food, both hot and cold. Schoolchildren can have a hot meal at school, but many just take a snack from home – a sandwich, a drink and some fruit.

Those who eat at home usually call their mid-day meal “dinner” and it is the biggest meal of the day for them. It consists of three or four courses. The first course is soup, though Englishmen are not very fond of soup, as it doesn’t leave enough room for the more important meat course. For the second course they have meat or fish with various vegetables, for a change they sometimes eat chicken or duck. Then dessert comes. This is jelly or fruit – apples, pears, oranges, plums, and nuts.

At about 5 p.m. they have afternoon tea. “Tea” means two things. It is a drink and a meal! Some people have afternoon tea, with sandwiches, cakes and, of course, a cup of tea. The tea is very strong with sugar or cream but never with lemon. The Englishmen always drink tea out of cups, never out of glasses.

The evening meal is the main meal of the day for many people. They usually have it between 6:00 and 8:00, and often the whole family eats together. On Sundays many families have a traditional lunch. They have roast meat, either beef, lamb, chicken or pork with potatoes, vegetables and gravy. Gravy is sauce made of the meat juices.

The British like food from other countries too, especially Italian, French, Chinese and Indian. People often get takeaway meals – you buy the food at the restaurant and then bring it home to eat. Eating in Britain is quite international.


II. Insert these words and expressions in the sentences:

Breakfast, packed lunch, take-away, ready-made meal, snacks.

1) These days people usually eat cereal and milk or toast and marmalade for … .

2) … is a meal that you can buy and take away or you can phone the restaurant and ask to deliver it to you.

3) The most popular … in Britain are crisps and chocolates.

4) A typical … might be sandwiches, a packet of crisps, a yoghurt, an apple.

5) … are frozen meals, which can be prepared in minutes in microwave.


III. Put the words in correct order and make sentences.

1)coffee/ you/ like/ some/ Would?

2)order /to/ ice-cream/ you/ like/ some/ Would?

3)table / two / a / We’d / for / like.

4)bill / have / Can / the / we / please?

5)May / pay / card / I / by / credit?

6)menu/ have / we / the / Could?

7)included/ service / the / Is?

Lunch tends to be a lighter meal – a sandwich, yogurt or a light entree. Dinner includes a main course of meat, poultry or fish, accompanied by side dishes such as soup, salad and vegetables. Brunch, a common Sunday meal served between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., is really a combination of breakfast and lunch.

Common dishes. There are a wide variety of foods, depending upon which type of restaurant you go to. Some American-style restaurants have a typical menu.

Restaurants. Americans eat out often. Fast food restaurants have wide popularity. There are two types of restaurants in the U.S.: fast food and full-service restaurants. The style of fast food restaurants is much like than of cafeteria. Patrons go up to a counter to order their meal: hamburgers, hot chicken sandwiches and pizza. It is then placed on a plastic tray which patron brings to a table. A typical dinner costs from $3.00 to $6.00. It is expected that patrons will finish within 30-45 minutes. In full-service restaurants a waiter comes to take the patrons’ order. Dinner can vary from $10.00 to $50.00. It is expected that patrons will finish eating and leave restaurant within an hour.

How Canadians Eat

What Canadians eat often depends on where they live. Traditionally, most Canadians would have at least one daily meal of meat, potatoes and vegetables. Improved transportation and the influence of immigrants have changed the Canadian diet. Grocery stores today stock foods from around the world. Pizza, pasta and spicy rice or noodle dishes are now favourites. Increasing numbers of Canadians are vegetarians.

Canadians eat three meals a day. In some households, breakfast includes pancakes, eggs and bacon and hot cereal. People in a hurry are more likely to eat cold cereal, toast or a muffin with coffee or tea. Lunch is usually a light meal. Most people eat soup, a sandwich or a salad. Dinner, also called supper, is the largest meal, and is usually eaten early in the evening. The biggest family meals

are those served at Thanksgiving and Christmas, when turkey is usually served with cranberries and stuffing. At Thanksgiving the traditional dessert is a pumpkin pie; at Christmas many people serve a Christmas cake.

For some Canadians, life is too hectic for daily family meals around a table. Grocery stores carry prepared dinners that are quickly warmed and eaten. Fast food restaurants also cater to people in a hurry. Meals can also be ordered over the phone and delivered to the door. Most large cities have restaurants that serve food from around the world.

Eating well

One of the most important components of our health is food we eat. Human organism needs a lot of vitamins and mineral salts to function well. It’s

impossible to give a universal advice because we all are different. But still there are some recommendations that would be useful for everybody. The most wholesome food is vegetables, fruit, cereals. We need to eat them every day. It’s good to eat some meat and fish from time to time, but not much. One should avoid eating too much salt and sugar. It’s better to use honey instead of sweets and cakes. But the main thing is not to eat too much. There is an old rule: one must feel a little bit hungry after dinner.

Different food does different jobs in your body, so you need to eat a good balance of all the different types. Eating the right amount is important too: neither too much nor too little.

Protein food makes you grow and help repair your body. Meat, fish, eggs and nuts contain protein.

Milk, cheese and yogurt contain calcium, which makes your bones and teeth strong. They also contain protein.

Carbohydrates give you energy. Bread, cereals, rice, pasta and potatoes are good energy foods.

Fruit and vegetables contain vitamins and minerals. You need these to keep your body working efficiently.

Fiber is a carbohydrate that your body cannot digest. It is good for your digestive system, though. It prevents constipation and may protect against some serious illnesses. Fiber is found in whole meal bread and pasta, wholegrain cereals, brown rice, fruit and vegetables.

Water is important to your blood. Drink lots of water every day.

Foods to cut down on

Sugar gives you energy but has no other benefits; it rots your teeth and too much of it makes you overweight.

Too much fat can make you overweight. Animal fat, which is found in foods such as meat and butter, contains a substance called cholesterol. Over time, this can cause your arteries to get blocked and lead to heart disease.

Some foods, for example milk shakes, ice cream and cookies are mostly fat and sugary.

Some people are allergic to additives, such as food dyes and preservatives, which are put into many foods.
