Breakfast literally means breaking the fasting period of the night before. Around the world, breakfast is the first meal of a day.
Breakfast is called petit-déjeuner (small lunch) in France and it’s usually croissant or toast and jam plus juice and coffee or tea.
When J.J. and I traveled through England, we were treated to their full English breakfasts. This often included bacon or sausages, eggs, baked tomatoes and baked beans, even mushrooms with black pudding and wonderful local breads that were toasted. Served with fruit juice plus coffee or tea, breakfast was the best meal of the day. A large breakfast allowed us to skip lunch.
My daily breakfast is somewhere in between in terms of quantity, but it always includes fruits and vegetables.
