Let us start with the names of the meals.
In the south, meals carry their internationally known names: Breakfast – Lunch – Dinner. While in the north, it is a little bit different.
"Dinner" stands for lunch, and "Teatime" stands for dinner.
So how does an English day go? You have to start your day early, Brits usually take their first meal of the day between 7:00 to 9:00 am.
The traditional breakfast is called "Full English" and consists of eggs, bacon, sausages, fried beans, mushrooms, and baked beans with a decent cup of coffee.
Nowadays, most people eat a much simpler meal.
It consists of a bowl of cereals, a slice of toast, orange juice, and coffee. Now you are good to go.
You get a quick lunch at work or school, Lunch is not the main meal of the day. It is just a quick snack. Lunch is usually grabbed around 12:00 to 1:30 pm.
Most of the time, lunch consists of a sandwich, crisps (potato chips), fruit, and a drink. There are several options you can pick in sandwiches.
These are tuna and mayonnaise, chicken and bacon, ham and pickles, or steak and onions. All of this is packed in a plastic container.
