10 Vegan Breakfast Ideas

If you are already vegan then you know it is so simple and easy to eat a vegan breakfast. But with all the awesome movements towards more veg living like Meatless MondaysVegan til 6... people are looking for easy ways to be vegan in the mornings and until lunch or dinner time! Below is a great list that I found on Care2.com. I like that website and it's a great resource for people new to the healthy lifestyle.

1)     Vegan yogurt with sliced banana and raw cashews – When you’re choosing a vegan yogurt, check that nutritional information, and opt for an unsweetened variety. Even some plain vegan yogurts can be pretty sugar-heavy! You can always add a little sugar or maple syrup to taste, but you can’t take it away.
2)     Pumpkin oatmeal – A bowl of oatmeal is a great way to start the day with some whole grains, but oatmeal can get a little humdrum, if you let it. Try jazzing it up with this pumpkin oatmeal recipe!

3)     Avocado toast – Instead of spreading butter or margarine on your toast, pile on 1/4 to 1/2 of a Haas avocado to start the day off with some healthy fats! A little thinly sliced onion and a squeeze of lemon juice doesn’t hurt, either. A new study found that avocado-eaters tend to be healthier than non-avocado-eaters.

4)     Green smoothie – You can also drink your breakfast! A green smoothie combines all the deliciousness of a smoothie with the power of raw greens. Need some green smoothie help? Check out our beginner guide to green smoothies.

5)     Tofu scramble – If you have some extra time in the morning, you can’t beat a tofu scramble! Loaded with protein and veggies, this is a satisfying breakfast. I like to make tofu scrambles on a lazy Sunday morning, and usually I base mine on this recipe from The PPK.

6)    Chia pudding – Chia seeds are a nutritional powerhouse, and a bowl of chia pudding is as healthy as it is delicious. The best part? You can set those seeds a-soakin’ the night before, so your pudding will be ready when you wake up in the morning – no A.M. prep required!

7)    Loaded blueberry muffins – If your mornings are super rushed, making a batch of muffins on the weekend is a great way to have the kitchen stocked with grab-and-go breakfast food. I love this loaded blueberry muffin recipe from Manifest Vegan. They’re packed with healthy berries, flax meal, and zucchini!

8)    Steel cut oats – Steel cut oats are less processed than the rolled oats we’re used to making. That means more nutrition, but it also means a much longer cooking time. Overnight oats to the rescue! Like the chia pudding, this recipe is pretty much ready, so you don’t have a lot to do in the morning.

9)    Vegan omelet – Say what? Like an egg omelet, this isn’t a busy morning breakfast, but it’s great for a more leisurely morning or even for brunch. Check out this awesome vegan omelet recipe to get you going.

10)    Granola bars – Another grab-and-go option, I like to make a big batch of granola bars over the weekend to eat all week. This granola bar recipe makes enough bars for my husband and I both to eat, and it lasts us all week long.

I love breakfast. I really love the Saturday brunch that Kennedy and I have instituted

If you anyone is interested in learning more about and exploring the health and fitness lifestyle through film, you should take a look at the movie: Jim Morris: Lifelong Fitness.  Jim Morris is a 78 year old vegan body builder and his inspiring story can be found here:
