Vegan Breakfast

Updated on December 9, 2016

Healthy Vegan Breakfast

Spending 8 hours in bed, after having not eaten for 2-4 hours, means our bodies have gone 10-12 hours minimum without nutrition. This is why eating breakfast is so important.

Our bodies are not designed to go without fuel for very long, so we need to replenish them after such a long break. In this meal, we need to have a good balance of Carbohydrates, Protein and Fats. A cup of coffee just won't do it!

What should a Vegan eat for Breakfast?

I've been a vegan for a large part of my life. I went vegetarian in 1977 and vegan in 1989. I've been through a lot of changes in my diet (yes, I can eat wheat, no I can't eat wheat, can't eat any grains, etc.). I currently don't eat wheat at all, nor do I eat rice (even whole grain), rye, spelt and barley. I just added oats back to my diet. This all has to do with food sensitivities.

I try to get protein for breakfast -- I do this with the help of mung bean noodles. I currently mostly eat mung bean noodles with oatmeal or millet grits (or corn grits). I add to this dried fruit (blueberries, cherries, mango, cranberries, apricots -- all without added sugar) and spices (cinnamon for sure, and sometimes ginger, nutmeg, cloves and/or allspice). I use one cup of unsweetened almond "milk" (almond breeze or silk) and some filtered water. I cook these ingredients until it's soft and cereal consistency. I add chia seeds (for omega 3 fatty acids and protein), a bit of stevia (to taste) and some more almond "milk". This makes a hearty breakfast. It's also a big breakfast and it keeps me full for a while (plus I eat less during the rest of the day).

Another breakfast I've eaten is dried fruits and spices and stevia with corn puffs (I eat a lot of corn). I also sometimes use half puffed corn and half puffed millet.

Another good quickie breakfast is unsweetened soy yogurt with added fruit (I either add compote, which I make earlier -- in a pot with a good cover, I take whatever fruit I can find, apples, pears, peaches, apricots, etc., add frozen mixed berries, a bit of stevia (and sometimes cinnamon and other spices) and cook this slowly (on a very low flame) until it's cooked through -- or I add my own homemade stevia sweetened "jam" -- I take a bag of frozen blueberries, strawberries, mixed berries, etc., put it in a pot with a good cover and cook it slowly as above). I also often add a bit of stevia. To "up" the protein, add some fiber and add some omega-3 fatty acids.
