breakfast (Korean occidentalism)
|Hankyoreh reminds the readers that it's important to eat a good breakfast. It's said that more than 20% are not eating a breakfast at all. |
Below is a table of typical, or stereotypical Korean, Western, and snack types of breakfasts. I plead to be excluded from the category of "Western" if I'm expected to have a breakfast such as in the table: (white) bread, butter, strawberry jam, fried egg, salad with mayonnaise dressing, milk.
What category would the following very very welbing breakfast typical in our family be included: three-grain wholemeal porridge, two pieces of wholemeal rye bread (see pic) with tomato, low-fat cheese, no-fat turkey cold cuts, milk coffee ("latte")?
But what am I complaining: this is a Korean idea of a Western breakfast; I'll allow for some exaggeration if it helps in propagating the healthiness of the Korean kind of breakfast.
