Easy plant-based breakfast ideas

We’ve long been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it really all comes down to what you refuel with after the all-night fast. Why? Because there’s a big difference between munching on a sugary donut and whipping up a nourishing vegan breakfast bowl. The latter serves as a great energy and nutrient-booster we all could benefit from enjoying first thing in the morning.

Read on as we share five easy breakfast ideas that all happen to be vegan and packed full of flavorful plant-based goodness.

 

5 Easy Vegan Breakfast Ideas

 

#1 Turmeric Tofu Scramble

Skip the eggs, and try whisking up an easy anti-inflammatory tofu scramble instead. You can use cubed tofu, dark leafy greens like kale or spinach, chopped onion, a sprinkle of turmeric and nutritional yeast for a flavorful and protein-packed breakfast.

And, if you need some added flavor, try topping it off with some salsa or sliced avocado.

 

#2 Protein-Rich Oatmeal Bowl

Oats are a staple in many plant-based diets, and they happen to make a delicious and easy breakfast. Try making a bowl of oatmeal topped with some raw almonds, blueberries, flax, chia, or hemp seeds, and a drizzle of pure maple syrup for a breakfast treat.

Looking to add in some extra protein? Try adding a scoop of your favorite plant-based protein powder for an added boost.

 

#3 Veestro’s Rice & Quinoa Pie

Want a done for you delicious option? Try Veestro’s Rice & Quinoa pie, made with brown rice, quinoa, and lots of flavorful add-ins like raisins, figs, and cinnamon (yum!)

 

#4 Veestro’s Chilaquiles

Looking for a savory breakfast option? Try Veestro's Chilaquiles (no eggs included!) Made with lots of veggies and a flavorful green sauce, this breakfast is sure to nourish your body and get your day started off right.

 

#5 Chocolate Almond Muffins

More of a sweet breakfast fan? Turns out, you can enjoy a sweet treat (the healthy and vegan way) for breakfast. Try making your favorite muffin recipe, but swap out the wheat flour for almond, and use pure maple syrup or maple sugar in place of the regular sugar.

Add a slab of coconut or almond butter and voila! You have yourself a much healthier muffin to help fuel your morning without all the added sugar.

 

Get Your Day Started Off the Right Way

What we eat for breakfast helps set the tone for other choices we may make throughout the rest of our day. If our first meal of the day is healthy, we may be more likely to make healthier choices for lunch and dinner too. 

So, get your day started off with a nourishing and plant-based meal. You may be surprised at what it can do for your energy levels as you power through your day.
