What is vegan breakfast? A vegan breakfast can really be any kind of recipe that does not include animal products such as dairy, eggs, milk, etc.
A Balanced Vegan Breakfast
What we love about a vegan breakfast is that you’re inevitably going to be eating fresher and healthier (if you stay away from packaged goods!) because of the sheer nature of a plant-based diet.
A balanced vegan breakfast should include:
- real-food ingredients (fresh fruits and veggies)
- whole grains (oatmeal, whole grain flour, etc.)
- all-natural plant-based sugars (maple syrup, agave, etc.)
- healthy fats (nuts, legumes, seeds, olive oil)
