We have a breakfast culture in the US!

We both love to eat breakfast.

  • English muffins
  • Bagels

Strategies for staying healthy and eating a good breakfast in the US:

  • Avoid the drive-thru– it’s disgusting and dangerous! Instead, get out of your car, go into a cafe or convenience store
  • Get your coffee “black” – with no sugar and no cream
  • Eat protein- get eggs, yogurt, etc. don’t eat carbohydrates. Try oatmeal. It keeps you full all day long!
  • Take lunch for breakfast- Order a lunch item for breakfast if all of the options are too greasy

 

It’s very common to have coffee with you at any time during the morning or afternoon in the US. It’s usually OK to take it into your workplace.

It’s common for Americans to walk around with a coffee in their hands in the morning.
