I found weird the picture of pasta, I recognize that in other countries the type of preparation is different but it cost me a lot to identificate that aliment. Also, althought the beans are delicious and perfect to get proteins, I surprised by the fact that british people eat this kind of food too. I had no idea.

I don't like to eat beans, porridge, or jam. I always put butter on my bread. I never put jam or even cheese on.

Usually, for breakfast, I eat toasted bread with butter or cereals with yogurt. I always drink a black coffee to awaken. I also like sometimes to drink hot chocolate at the weekend.

For lunch, sometimes I eat salad, or pasta with hot cheese, or seafood rice. Seafood rice is a typical Spanish food called "Paelha".

In Portugal is very common for people to eat codfish in differents ways. I like it boiled it with potatoes. Actually, codfish with boiled potatoes is a typical dish of Christmas night in many Portuguese houses.

I like pizza, kebab, bisuits and chocolate cake, hamburgers, in short, all the foot that make you fat...

From the food offered, I don't eat chips and cereal. I do not find this food good for health. I am following a paleo diet. I love salad, poultry, eggs, vegetables, nuts, berries and fruits. My favorite beverages are chicory coffee and herbal tea. Very rarely I eat bread and pasta. These are simple carbohydrates and I try to avoid them.

From foods that are on these food pages, I usually eat eggs, pasta with cheese and tomatoes and I often put some butter in pasta that make it less stuck. I like to eat salads with different vegetables, and sometimes I buy bread to eat with cheese, but as it's expensive and it make been fat, I don't eat these foods regulary. From others foods that are not in these pages and I often cook, I usually like to eat hot vegetables, rice, and I also try to make some cakes chen I have time. I also eat meat like chicken, beef or pork, it depends, but I try to not eat meat in every meal.

I definitely eat most of these foods. Some food I eat more than other, for example I very rarely eat porridge but I think this is mistake because porridge is very healthy.

On the night I made in dinner some sandwiches with fried eggs, cheese and salad. Actually I don’t like beans and porridge but I like chips very much.

I have never eaten cheese; basically, I do not eat or drink dairy products. They say a big lie to people that they are essential for the body due to being the great source of calcium. But they do not say to people when we heat them we kill the most useful enzymes that are necessary to absorb the calcium. For instance, when you drink a glass of milk, your body takes calcium from your bones to digest it. Food and medicine industry both are under political and economical governments policies. They make pain and then sell medicine or supplement to you.
