Re: grits

Grits are a great lowfat dish.  They're usually served with butter or
margarine but not cooked with it, so ask that the butter be held.  Seasoned
with pepper they're a pretty good breakfast with a slice of toast.  (If
you've had polenta, you've basically had a firmer version of grits.)  Per
cup: 146 calories, .5 g fat.

I live in Columbia, SC.  Let me know if you're headed this way and I'll
give you some restaurant suggestions.

There's a great vegan Chinese restaurant in Houston called Wonderful
Vegetarian Restaurant at 7549 Westheimer.  (At least it was still there
when I last visited Houston.)  It has a great vegan buffet lunch--simply
