    Lunch. Sometimes im not in the mood for breakfast food and I'll just eat lunch or dinner food. Other than that, oatmeal with fruit is my go to.

    Many Ayurvedic recipes are vegan, like cinnamon stewed apples! :smile:

    Bacon ;)>:)

    When I was non-vegan, I didn't feel the need to announce it all the time. I honestly don't understand the "bacon" commenter mentality.


    am not a vegan nor even a vegetarian but I cringe at such silly comments.

    answer OP's question or don't - no need for stupid jibes.

    Although I am not a vegan, my regular breakfast is 3 weetbix with milk - this could easily be vegan if you just use non dairy milk
    Obviously not high in protein though - if protein at breakfast is an issue for you.

    People have given some good ideas - but simple things like toast with a vegan spread (jam?, peanut butter? marmite? smashed avocado) and fruit would be easy too.
    That would be quite filling for me.

    When making tofu scramble, add kala namak (black salt) as it has a sulfur taste that mimics eggs!

    Today I made a breakfast burrito with a low carb wrap, lite life sausage, 1/4 block of tofu (seasoned with kala namak and pepper then fried in vegan butter), 1.5 cups leafy greens, 1T sriracha, and 1t vegan mayo. It was so good I intend to eat it again tomorrow.

    I do a cooked cereal that's half steel-cut oats and half bulgur. I put a mixture of dried berries & nuts on top (measured carefully, of course!), cinnamon, and enough almond milk to moisten. Sometimes this is what I mix my ground flaxseed and chia seeds into.

    -Oats with different mix ins-Plant protein powder, nut butter, cacao nibs, cacao powder, seeds, berries
    - Plant protein shake or Protein smoothie (Greens, plant protein powder, nut butter or avocado

    "Just Egg" plant based egg is remarkable if you like things like that. Its like egg and no smell or animal :)

    An interfering aside (because I am just that kind of hand-wring-y internet granny type):

    I don't know your nutritional priorities, so this may not be a concern for you.

    Speaking as a long-term vegetarian (not even a vegan), I find that if I don't get a meaningful amount of protein in every meal (including breakfast), it's quite difficult to hit a reasonable total for the day. This is extra true when on reduced calories for weight loss.

    If you stand back far enough and squint, maybe that counts as a tip for a good vegan breakfast? If not, apologies!

    (I already gave some specific ideas, with this idea in mind, earlier in the thread . . . .).

    This has been my issue. I realised I was eating so many carbs and so little protein. I have recently reintroduced fish. I really struggle with the vegan/vegetarian vs getting enough protein. Without animal protein I find I am taking B12 and other supplements and wonder if I’m better off just eating meat? Then I’ll watch ‘what the health again’ .....

    I like to eat savory for breakfast.. you can omit the rice flour in this recipe or substitute with quinoa flour. It is yummy and will keep you full. Very satiating!

    Some of my favorites:
    • A plate of sliced fruits, nondairy yogurt, and granola to snack on throughout the morning
    • A thick slice of freshly baked sourdough with avocado, hemp seeds, fresh herbs, sea salt, and lemon juice + olive oil drizzle
    • Soft-scrambled tofu with black beans, spinach/chard/kale, garlic, and peppers.
    • Overnight oats with protein powder, maca, and fresh fruit
    • Hemp milk smoothie with protein powder, frozen fruit, and golden flaxmeal.

    Usually planning something I'm excited to eat helps me get up in the morning and start my day.

    I make a batch of these on Sunday and then make breakfast tacos with almond milk plain yogurt, tortilla, and guacamole or avocado through the week.

    I usually have leftovers from a previous meal (this morning I had white bean soup with rosemary and garlic). If I'm cooking something specifically, I like pancakes, breakfast burritos, tofu scramble, or savory oats.

    Funny because I just had pizza fot lunch...and my suggestion was going to be leftover pizza or a breakfast pizza. After all, its good every meal, right? :)
