It’s pretty clear that more people are intrigued by Veganism.

It’s obvious why; you save your health, you save the animals, you save the planet and it prevents pandemics. The advert writes itself!

Many people are still uncertain about how to make the switch. It’s actually really really simple. In fact it’s so simple that you can do it overnight.

But people like exploring a lifestyle before totally committing to it – and with Veganism the simplest place to start is breakfast.

Why Start with Breakfast

Breakfast is practically already vegan if you think about.

The vast majority of us will have something very simple in the morning. We will have something like oats, or some toast or a smoothie to start the day. That’s practically all vegan, and with a few small modifications we can make it totally vegan.

Smoothies

A year back I was heavy into smoothies – especially when I was training.

The main concern with a smoothie is that some people have milk in it.

Apart from that basically all smoothies are made of fruits, vegetables, spices and nuts. Just swap out the milk for a plant based milk like an oat milk, almond milk, rice milk or soy milk and you’re good to go.

Vegan Smoothie!

Toast

If you’re in a rush like I always am, or you don’t feel like eating much then toast is perfect. Just slap on some jam, peanut butter or plant based butter and you’re done. Easy as that.

Oats

This is my go meal. Every single day I have a bowl of oats, with a dash cinnamon, amla powder and flax (seeds or powdered).

I then top that of with soy milk and its delicious anytime of the day especially for breakfast.

Black Coffee or Tea

You can add plant based milk to your coffee or tea, but it’s better to just have it straight. No milk at all and and sugar.

Even though sugar can be plant based based is no good for you.

Start weaning yourself off of it during breakfast and you’ll feel a whole lot better.

Pump up that Breakfast

If you want a Super Breakfast that’s going to power you throughout the day, then this Protein Powered Breakfast will do the trick.

It’s packed a whopping 23 grams of protein, covering a third of recommended protein intake for the day. It also has four fruits in there almost obliterating your daily fiber requirements.

Vegan Beast Bowl

  • 1 cup Oats = 16.9 grams of protein
  • 1 banana = 1.1 grams of protein
  • 1 apple = 0.3 grams of protein
  • 1 apricot = 1.4 grams of protein
  • 1 cup blueberries = 1.4 grams of protein
  • 1 tbsp flax powder = 1.9 grams of protein
  • amla powder, cinnamon powder and almond milk

You need a huge appetite for this breakfast, and it’s clearly a breakfast of champions.

Schedule and Consistency

With these options for breakfast, you’re ready to commence your exploration into Veganism.

However, trying something for a week doesn’t build results.

But should you eat these vegan breakfasts for a month, you’ll start to realize this Vegan thing is actually pretty easy.

It will build those habits, internalize that behavior and change your tastes.

After a while you’ll realize that you actually prefer plant based milk, that it’s a easier way to get your nutrients and even your your reliance on sugar will drop.

Conclusion

It’s never been easier to go Vegan, and the best place to start is with breakfast.

You own breakfast and you’ll own the day, but more importantly you’ll start the change to exploring the entire food fiesta that Veganism has to offer.
