Chinese breakfast rice porridge is almost like a soup. And you can cook it up loaded with veggies and savory flavors.

Oh, dear, Spork, congee? I saw it with fish heads once and that did it for me. Too much for breakfast! Also there's one that is with soy "milk" and a weird vegetable (?) that looks sort of like a long, skinny loofah sponge. You could get it in sweet (really, not much different from American breakfast cereal) or savory (my choice). But, seriously, give me Lipton's or ramen or leftover home-made from the night before!

I frequently have breakfast salad. Start with fresh spinach and I build from there. Boiled eggs, avocados, sugar snaps, cherry tomates, cheese, sprouts, nuts, leftovers from last night, especially seafood. Yum.

I have vegetables for breakfast all the time, but they're in an omelette or a fritatta, or a Spanish tortilla.

I usually don't eat breakfast, but I do like a glass of low sodium V-8 every morning.

Would that be lotus?

I don't think so (I've had lotus). I'll do some research and get back.

OK, the closest I could find is something that is called Chinese Crullers, but the photos look little like what I had with my Chinese friends. They are long and skinny, but look more like a loofah sponge than what most of use would call pastry. They were then sliced, and put in a bowl of soy milk, either sweet or spicy.

Was it deep fried?

Salads are really good for breakfast. I love a mix of greens and fruits with cucumber, peas, carrots, broccoli, sweet pepper or even some minced chili's that I mixed in with the dressing. Basically whatever fresh veggies I have on hand. Yogurt dressings are really good and high in protein. You can also just toss it with some cottage cheese which is also high in protein. Blue cheese, feta or parmesan crumbles with a vinegar, lemon or lime based dressing are really good too and definitely make you feel awake.
