Summer Learning Journey - Day 7

DAY 7/23rd December
Activity 1
You made it safely to your hotel and feel fast asleep. You’ve now woken up and are ready to start your day. Before you start, however, you need to eat some breakfast. Imagine that you and your whanau have walked out of the hotel and into a restaurant across the street. At the restaurant you are offered a traditional breakfast meal. Scroll through the examples below to see a picture of what is commonly eaten in your country for breakfast.
Compare the picture of common breakfast foods in the country you’ve chosen with what you typically eat for breakfast here in New Zealand. I usually have a bowl of sultana bran cereal with trim milk and a cup of tea. What about you? On your blog, please tell us:
  1. What you eat for breakfast
  2. What people in your chosen country eat for breakfast
  3. Which of the two breakfast options (your breakfast or the breakfast in the other country) you prefer. Why do you prefer it?
Canada – Pancakes with maple syrup

Japan – White rice, fish, meso soup and natto (fermented beans)

  1. What you eat for breakfast? Cereal or Smoothie ( Weetbix or Porridge ) -     ( Fruit and other )
  2. What people in your chosen country eat for breakfast? Japan – White rice, fish, meso soup and natto (fermented beans)
  3. Which of the two breakfast options (your breakfast or the breakfast in the other country) you prefer. Why do you prefer it? I don't really know but I think I would prefer Cereal or a Smoothie because I don't know what to expect with the japanese breakfast.

Activity 2
Some of the most famous foods to come out of New Zealand include kiwifruit, lamb, whitebait, oysters, tuatua (shellfish), kumara, bacon and egg pie, hokey pokey ice cream, lolly cake, anzac biscuits and pavlova. Take a picture of you (or someone you know!) eating one of these famous ‘kiwi’ foods. Post the picture to your blog. Underneath the picture tell us what they are eating.

Bonus Round
According to numerous researchers and fitness experts, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. They argue that people who eat breakfast will have more energy, be in a better mood, be able to think more clearly, do better at school and end up healthier than people who don’t eat breakfast.
Interestingly, not everyone agrees. In fact, some people believe that breakfast is not the most important meal of the day because people often eat too much food at breakfast time, gain weight and become unhealthy. They think that it is better to skip breakfast and eat a number of small meals later in the day.
After reading the arguments presented above, what do you think? Is breakfast the most important meal of the day? Why or why not?
Do you disagree or not? - Is breakfast the most important meal of the day?
I agree because it's the first meal of the day so it should wake you up and give you keeps of energy but the other meals are very important to.

Hi Cherise,

I am very impressed by how well you are doing with these activities! The Japanese breakfast is quite different from a bowl of cereal isn't it! I definitely like the idea of having pancakes for breakfast, but I bet they would be very sweet with all of that maple syrup.

I agree with your thoughts about breakfast - it is an important meal to break the "fast" or time you have been asleep without eating. It will give you energy to start the day, although I think your breakfast of cereal would be healthier than the pancakes!

Hi Cherise!

I also agree that breakfast is important and does help give you energy for the day. Another thing which I like to think is part of my morning routine is exercise. It wakes me up and somehow gives me more energy for my day! When I am not exercising I get tired quicker and am more lazy.

It's interesting what works for different people. I hope you find a good routine for yourself too!

Have you ever had miso soup?

Hi Cherise!

I also agree that breakfast is important. Unlike Mark, I don't exercise in the morning, but most of the time I am fine. But yes, I hope you find a routine that suits you!

Keep it up! I love reading your posts!

Hi Cherise,

I love to see you snacking on one of my all-time favourite fruits - kiwifruit! I had never tried it until I moved to New Zealand in 2011 but as soon as I had my first taste, I was hooked!

I am still trying to convince my son, Aronui, to eat more kiwifruit as part of his breakfast but he prefers to have Weet-bix, yoghurt and milk to start the day. I, on the other hand, tend to go for muesli. I love it!

I also love going to the gym in the mornings. Like Mark, it really energises me and gives me the push that I need to launch into the day.

Do you like to do exercise in the morning?

Iisa, Mark, Aaliyahna, Ms Stone and I will all look forward to reading your reply. I hope that you're able to hop back online and blog with us again soon!

Cheers,
Rachel :)
