hansel = breakfast
croust = lunch (not the meal in general, but something you take to work/the park/the beach etc)
li = lunch
kidnyow = dinner
con = a late dinner
soper = supper


I guess if you wanted to say "Let's have lunch" you could say "Gero'nei livya", and if you were having a roast for lunch you wouldn't call it "croust", it would be "li", but if you were having a sandwich in the garden it would be a "croust". Just my interpretation.
