Hola, I'm currently studying French and Spanish and am having some trouble understanding the usage and ommission of the definite article in Spanish. I've read that in Spanish it is used similarly to how it is used in English. My Spanish teacher, who is also a French teacher, has always taught us to define the article before each noun (so always a/some/the before nouns). However, if I take this example: For breakfast, I eat cereal and toast. Would this translate as... "Desayuno cereales y pan tostado." Or would we say... "Desayuno los cereales y el pan tostado." The second option is the way we've been taught but I've been told this sounds terribly foreign. Thanks for your help in advance.
