Readers Digest online had this picture of a sumo wrestler preparing breakfast for the rest of the stable. The dish is called Chanko Nabe. From left to right, there's sliced onions, udon noodles, enoki and shimeji mushrooms, chives and napa cabbage. I'm assuming the darker meat is sliced pork and the lighter meat is chicken. Sumo wrestlers are known for fattening up with this meal, not because it's especially fattening but because they eat several dozen bowls in one sitting.
I made this photo my desktop wallpaper. It perpetually makes my stomach rumble.
