Breakfast is important for everyone and vegans enjoy an endless variety of morning meal options.

Vegans Eat Quiche?

Howard’s Favorite Quiche

You don’t need dairy or eggs to make fantastic breakfast classics, so vegans need not forgo familiar favorites like  french toast, pancakes, biscuits & gravy, cinnamon rolls, breakfast burritos, bacon, quiche (yes, vegans eat quiche and bacon!) omelets, casseroles, bennies and even plant-based versions of fast-food breakfast sandwiches – we’re just loving the compassion!

Diary & Egg-Free French Toast

If you prefer your morning meal on the savory side, try creamed spinach on toast, veggie corn cakes or a hearty breakfast bowl.

Grab and Go Vegan Meals

Keep mornings simple with grab-and-go meals like whole grain toast topped with prepared hummus and slices of veggies, eggless salad or nut butter and jam. For power packed raw breakfasts on the go that you can make ahead of time, try Tess’ Raw Cinnamon Rolls or Sarah’s Goji Berry Energy Balls. Or try a multi-seed porridge

There is a large and growing variety of commercially available vegan cereal and a bowl topped with your favorite plant-based milk is a great way to start your day. For a guide to vegan cereal brands see  http://www.onegreenplanet.org/vegan-food/guide-natural-and-vegan-cereal/  Also, don’t overlook the crockpot. Cooking oats and other grains overnight make morning meals a breeze. A great resource for vegan crockpot meals is http://healthyslowcooking.com/

If eating in the AM is not your thing, drink your breakfast with a healthy juice or smoothie.

Everyone has time for a healthy start to their day.
