They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. While there is a lot of back and forth on that statement we know that eating healthy foods is great for our bodies, no matter the time of day.
In modern society, we have such busy lives. We don’t necessarily have the time to spend whipping up a hearty breakfast each day. Furthermore, traditional western breakfasts tend to have foods that really suffer if they’re not served fresh. Things like toast, eggs, meats, etc.
We will give you some fantastic, easy vegan breakfast ideas that you can make in bulk! We will also give a couple of our best vegan breakfasts that you can make over a weekend or a day when you have a bit more time. Oh, the wonders of working from home!
Overnight oats are a craze taking the world by storm. They are so easy to make and you can prepare them in batches to take to work with you in the morning if you’re pressed for time. They have a number of amazing health benefits as well that we will take as a bonus!
Simply add half a cup of rolled oats and half a cup of vegan milk to an air-tight mason jar. Combine well with your favourite nut butter, fruit, seeds, syrups, or anything else! You can have a fantastically varied week of breakfasts with such ease.
Tofu Scramble on Toast
A vegan staple. Simply heat up a pan with some vegan butter and crumble in some of this extra-firm tofu. Add plenty of salt and pepper, nutritional yeast, and a bit of turmeric powder. Simply cook until the tofu has a beautiful golden colour and the seasoning is well mixed in. Serve on top of your favourite toast and enjoy! This can be eaten quickly or slowly for busy mornings.
Vegan Breakfast Burrito
If you need a high-protein, diet-friendly breakfast to fuel your workouts then this is a fantastic recipe for you. Take your favourite wrap, containing gluten or otherwise, add some of the tofu scrambles, this vegan bacon, some of this vegan sausage, add your favourite vegan sauce, and enjoy! Add some melted vegan cheese for added protein and flavour too!
This is one of the best vegan breakfast ideas as you can prepare them the night before, take it to work and warm it up when you’re ready to eat. The high-protein content will keep you full for a while!
You can’t beat a classic smoothie. Probably the best, tastiest way of getting in all those micronutrients that we need on a daily basis. Our favourite recipe is frozen blueberries, a banana, a dash of cinnamon, a small pinch of salt, oat milk, and a scoop of protein powder.
You can prepare these the night before, or do it in seconds in the morning. Add a couple of ice cubes if it’s a warm day for it to keep you cooler for longer!
If you have an active working life, we would recommend something a bit heartier for a smoothie. Add some oats, peanut butter, banana, ice cubes, vegan whole milk, and any other fruit of choice to a blender and blend until smooth. The peanut butter will give you that slow-release energy that helps our bodies stay active throughout the day.
Buddha bowls and the like are available for lunch everywhere. However, if you don’t really love breakfast foods, why not try them for breakfast? Batch bake some sweet potato and veggies, add them atop your favourite gram or pulse, top with some delicious seeds, hummus, or another dip, and enjoy! This is one of our most healthy vegan breakfast ideas as it is super colourful and we are always advised to have a colourful meal!
If you were allowed cereal as a kid, one of the worst realizations you make as an adult is that cereal is brimming with sugar. There is no substitute for crunchy cereal with cold milk. It’s hard to justify eating it with this knowledge.
Fear no longer though, at PlantX we have some healthy vegan cereals for you to try! This chocolate cereal from Seven Sundays is only 140 calories per serving! If you love an even chocolatier flavour then try this Catalina Crunch Keto Cereal.
East Asian Vegan Breakfast
There is a lot of evidence coming out at the moment that eating cultured foods is essential for our bodies. Fermented foods have an incredible impact on our metabolic processes. In countries like Japan, they often have a simple breakfast of steamed rice, protein, and miso soup. The miso has an incredible amount of these qualities that have a fantastic effect on our bodies. Simply choose your vegan protein like some lentil-based meatballs, and cook the rice and miso soup. And enjoy!
The most famous and easy vegan breakfast ideas are avocado and toast. Why pay $15 for it in a restaurant when you can make it at home? Simply get some of your favourite bread, and a ripe avocado, and you’ve done it! Garnish with some chilli flakes, fresh basil, and olive oil for extra flavour.
Healthy Breakfast Hash
Potatoes are a wonderful thing to have in the morning as they are one of the most filling foods while being relatively low-calorie. Simply dice and boil some potatoes. While that’s running, sautee some veggies and vegan meat in a pan. Add the potatoes and coat in the flavours you’ve developed in the pan, add some mustard and nutritional yeast to the party, and enjoy!
Who said pancakes aren’t healthy? Have some amazingly delicious, high-protein pancakes to start your day. The best part is, they are easier than ever with this pre-made protein pancake mix. Simply follow the instructions, top with your favourite fruit and sweetener, and enjoy!
