Those who follow my blog know that I am a vegetarian and that I am of course raising my own little vegetarian too. You don’t have to agree with it but it’s our choice and it’s what is working for us. I am going for an attempt at a healthier year in 2019 and am attempting Veganuary which, for those who don’t know, is where you go completely vegan (no animal products at all) for the whole month of January to kick things off! To help those out who are looking to join in with Veganuary too, I have created this round-up of great breakfast recipes for those days you don’t simply want toast!
To take you through the 5 weeks of Veganuary, here are 5 delicious looking breakfast recipes I’ve found from some great vegan bloggers.
Vegan Banana Pancakes – we do love pancakes in this house, especially the American style ones and in the past I’ve made them at least once a month. Alyssa loves them with a little bit of homemade strawberry compote from last years fruit picking and I think we could definitely add that to these for her! These come from A Virtual Vegan.
Vegan Omelette with Mushroom and Kale – if I am giving up cheese, I am really glad I don’t have to give up mushrooms as they are a huge weakness of mine and I use them in A LOT of my recipes. You might be thinking but an omelette is made of eggs…well not all of them! Happy Skin Kitchen has produced this recipe with delicious silken tofu and coupled it with some greens to really kick start your day and metabolism! You will feel practically angelic after eating this!
Vegan Overnight Oats – Now I did say that one of my primary goals for 2019 was to lose weight. Generally on a day to day I’ll be trying just to eat healthily and have a balanced diet but I do also adopt some of the primary principles of Slimming World too and one of the breakfasts I came to rely upon was overnight oats. This great vegan alternative means I won’t need to give them up and that doing Veganuary will fit in nicely with losing weight too!
Raw Apple Pie Porridge – I was never a fan of porridge. I didn’t like the taste when I was younger unless it was piled high with some kind of sugar or syrup. However, I soon learnt that adding healthy sweetness could make it taste better plus it was a great filler for long days or diet days. When I spotted this recipe on Wallflower Kitchen, it was greeted with a cheer because who wouldn’t want a bowl of apple pie porridge for breakfast. This is definitely one I’ll be trying out!
Aussie Breakfast Corn Fritters – Often in the past I will have skipped breakfast because I either don’t want to eat too early in the morning or for me breakfast is too sweet and I fancy something savoury. This Aussie-style recipe from Poppy and the Bees is perfect as it’s a real savoury breakfast but also easy to make nice and healthy for a great way to kick off the day. In a pancake/fritter style, I might even get my fussy eater to try these with some veg in!
With this set of Vegan Breakfast Recipes, the only thing you’ll be needing is a giant mug of coffee, a blanket and a good book to accompany the start of your day. If you try any of them out, let me know what you think!
