Most of my clients struggle to come up with simple, healthy breakfast ideas.
I totally get it because I used to be the same way. Before I started eating mostly plant-based, I used to really love a big hearty breakfast such as eggs, bacon, toast and home fries, but I also realized this was not quite healthy or sustainable to eat everyday. I began to notice that when I started my day eating this way I would usually feel pretty sluggish a few hours later.
Now I love to start my day with lots of water, a coffee and a light breakfast. I really notice that I have so much more energy when I eat this way. Of course, there are also some days where I’ll eat a heavier breakfast or treat myself to some yummy waffles because well, #balance.
So if you’ve been struggling with your energy levels or simply want to find some quick and nourishing recipes to eat for breakfast each day then this list is for you.
7 Quick and Easy Plant-Based Breakfast Ideas to Start Your Day Off Energized
1.Smoothies & Smoothie Bowls
2. Simple Pancakes
3. Overnight Oats or Oatmeal
4. Homemade Yogurt (or unseated store bought yogurt) & Fruit
5. Avocado Toast or Sweet Potato Toast
6. Muesli or Granola
7. Chickpea Flour (or Tofu) Scramble
I’d also like to mention that a big bowl of fresh fruit is another staple of mine, but that seemed a little too simple to add to this list. I recommend choosing 2 of these recipes and rotating every other day for the week. This way you can batch cook them on the weekend and have them ready to go for the week. It will save you so much time and you’ll start to feel amazing!
