colleague in the U.S. something along the lines of:

foods, when in other cultures people eat completely different foods for
To which the colleague allegedly replied: "What do you mean? Doesn't
everyone have rice and broth for breakfast?"
Classic "Israeli breakfasts", BTW, contain sliced cucumbers and tomatoes,
sometimes as salad; boiled or fried egg; a range of yoghourts and light,
fluffy spoonable cream-cheese; and bread. Cereals are catching on, but they
are a recent import.
