Mitchell - Summer learning journey Day # 7

Hello bloggers. Today is Day 7 of the Summer learning journey. Let's begin!
Activity 1 - Breakfast
If I were to imagine that me and my family walked out of the hotel in the morning and walked across the road to a restaurant. At the restaurant we are offered a traditional breakfast meal. Here is the breakfast list :
Canada – Pancakes with maple syrup

Australia – Vegemite on toast

The breakfast option I would prefer would be the Weet-bix. I would prefer this because I am used to it and it is very good for you. The Japanese breakfast kind of looks more like a dinner than a breakfast but it still looks very delicious.

Activity 2 - Kiwi foods
As part of Activity 2 I have to eat one of the Kiwi foods and take a picture of myself eating it. Here is a list of the Kiwi foods to decide from:  kiwifruit, lamb, whitebait, oysters, tuatua (shellfish), kumara, bacon and egg pie, hokey pokey ice cream, lolly cake, anzac biscuits and pavlova. Here is a picture of me eating one of these Kiwi foods:

Here is a picture I took of myself eating lamb. I did not eat the lamb because it was frozen so I just got this.

Bonus - Is breakfast healthy?
Some people say that breakfast is the most unhealthiest meal of the day. Some also say that it is the most important meal of the day. I think the most important and healthiest meal of the day is Breakfast. It depends on what kind of breakfast you have such as Sultana Bran or Fresh fruit. If you have pancakes that may be unhealthy but If you don't have breakfast you will have not so great learning the day you had no breakfast.

  1. Malo e lelei Mitchell,

    It's great to see you be blogging in the holiday, and joining the Summer Learning Journey program. Thanks for all the info I have now learned that is breakfast healthy? Sometimes in the morning I don't have breakfast but I am still active, and able to do learning really well which is weird. I also loved that photo you took of yourself with the lamb! Keep up the amazing work Mitchell.


  2. Hello Mitchell,

    I am really enjoying reading your posts - plenty of interesting information, thank you! Great to see you have chosen Japan. I have been there once - ages ago - and would love to visit again. Your post reminds me of the breakfasts I had there at my host family's house. We did have the traditional breakfast, but sometimes did have toast. But it was really thick and sweeter than the regular white toast bread we have in NZ - my host mother would fry an egg and put it on the buttered toast. It was tasty!

    Looking forward to reading more about Japan on your blog!

    Haha! That picture is great! I would have done that same thing if there wasn't any food being eaten at the time. It's amazing that you went the extra mile and put all the countries breakfasts into your blog! I'm just sitting here stunned. It looks like a lot of really delicious food!

    Did you know when I lived in Korea and Vietnam I used to eat exactly what the locals did? So for breakfast I often had rice with Kimchi and some egg in Korea, and a kind of pho in Vietnam - which is noodle soup with some special bread stick things.

    I miss the food. It is so much more interesting than cereal.

    I can't wait to read more of your work. You're doing so well!

    Kia kaha,


    PS. Sorry for the deleted comment, I had some bad spelling in my last one.
