Your Shot: Breakfast Around the World

If you’re the kind of person who grabs coffee and an energy bar while running out the door, it may be time to rethink your breakfast.

In Thailand, people sit down with steaming hot bowls of rice porridge called jok, brightened with bits of pork or shrimp and fish sauce, of course, or maybe Non Khai pan egg, in which the whites are scrambled but the yolks left wholeIn Iceland, you may wake up with strong coffee, a hot bowl of hafragrautur, or oatmeal, and a swig of cod liver oil for the kidsBreakfast in Kenya could be a thin porridge called uji and a cup of chai, or maybe a fried doughnut made with coconut milk called mahamri. 

Whatever you choose today, take a little extra time and enjoy this gallery of inspirational breakfasts from our Your Shot community.
