What defines a meal: the food that you eat or the time in which the food is eaten?
for example: if I eat Pancakes at 8:00pm, would it be considered breakfast or dinner?
Interesting question! I would suggest the food that you eat is irrelevant in defining a meal but that the time at which you eat in relation to your lifestyle is what determines the nature of the meal.
For example, if you work a regular 9 to 5 job and sleep from 11pm to 7am, whatever you eat at 8am is your breakfast. In a literal sense, you are breaking the fast in which you have indulged while sleeping. Conversely, if you work 11pm to 7am and sleep 1pm to 9pm, a meal at 10pm would be your breakfast.
The way I see it is that all other meals are defined in relation to the time at which you eat breakfast.
Hope this makes sense!
Pancakes are pancakes and can be eaten anytime you want to make them. You can have bacon and eggs for supper and a toasted clubhouse for breakfast and meatloaf for lunch. What counts is food quality and quantity.
