  • Too lazy to make these meals in the morning. The pasta stuff didn’t seem delicious as I expected it to. Now I wish I had a loaf of Vietnamese bread right here in my dorm. Does anyone ever try to mix some cereal with milk for breakfast? It’s ok to have a breakfast like this for a few days but no more than a week because it’s way too milky.
    Sometimes I just have fruits for breakfast, maybe a bowl of salad works pretty well for me because I have had enough of meats.

  • In China students love instant noodles but you have already known that China has a good reputation of traditional cuisines. Beijing kaoya wins everyone heart.
    Boiled eggs are pretty simple to prepare but a sandwich may take 15-20 minitutes so it’s not for a busy day.
    I suggest having breakfast with rice and boiled vegetables. It’s time-efficient and provide much glucose.

  • I usually have pasta and sandwich for dinner. I don’t have breakfast, instead I drink a cup of milk. If I am too hungry, I will have some bread or cookies perhaps.
    Thanks for the idea, but I need more.
    Can you write a post about some drinks that we can make quickly in the morning?

  • I would go with Ramyeon because it’s easy, cheap and quick. But of course it’s unhealthy and very bad for skin, but still…
