Alice, what do you usually have for breakfast? You wouldn't have a link to an English site with recipes, by any chance?

Corn syrup is bad, I try to avoid it but it's nearly impossible.

Sweden is like Canada in that respect, even though a lot of (now fat) Swedes take up "American" öifestyles with a lot of fast food and soft drinks. Asian food is much healthier.

Traditionally, in U.S. and British culture, bread is "the staff of life." Bread is made from wheat (Triticum aestivum) and is the main source of carbohydrates in sandwiches, hamburger buns, breakfast and dinner rolls, and so forth.

For complicated reasons of national policy and agribusiness, since the 1950s there has been an increasing shift toward corn (maize, Zea mays) particularly in the form of high-fructose corn syrup.

Potatoes can be considered a staple food in the U.S. 

Rice is perfectly familiar to us but it doesn't have the central role that it has in Asian cooking.
