1 Week of Easy Vegan Breakfasts
Here are my favorite quick and easy food options for the “I need food now” mornings!
Almond Butter Toast + Banana + Flax Seeds + Chia Seeds
Recently this has been my go to breakfast. Since Tim and I got married, I’ve been trying to be the dream wife and make breakfast every morning but if I’m being honest here, most the time I don’t have enough time to cook the works.
That’s when I turn to the trusted whole wheat toast with some almond butter, flaxseed and banana slices. It’s packed with nutrition and protein to hold you over until lunch. Tim loves it, I love it… it’s a win win.
TIP: If you have picky eaters, crush and hide the flax seed UNDER the banana. They’ll never know it’s there HAHA
Oatmeal + Frozen Blueberries
As the weather starts to cool off for the fall, I love incorporating warm meals into my day. It keeps me cozy and always reminds me of the breakfasts my mom would prepare for me as a child. Add a hot cup of tea and a candle, and you have yourself the perfect hygge morning!
I usually pop my oatmeal in the microwave, sprinkle a little cinnamon, and when it’s finished cooking, I stir in about 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries. The frozen berries help to cool off the hot oatmeal so I can eat right away too!
Avocado toast is always a winner! Smear avocado on whole wheat toast (or rice cakes for GF option!) and sprinkle some salt, pepper, chia seeds and flax seeds!
Revitalizing Breakfast Smoothie
I usually end my week with a smoothie because I’ve already worked through the majority of my groceries, but I always have a little almond milk and bananas left over to throw something tasty together. It also makes for a perfect a quick breakfast after a long week of work. Check out my favorite nutrient-dense smoothies here.
Granola + Berries + Oat Milk
I recently discovered oat milk, and OH MY – this was a game changer. It’s so sweet and delicious. I usually stick with almond milk, but sometimes when I want something a little sweeter to go with my granola, I will use oat milk instead.
Pour the granola of your choice in a bowl, and top with mixed berries (I use a frozen berry mix with blueberries, Blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries), then add your oat milk. If you want to get really fancy, try adding some fresh basil.
