When most people go vegan, they are only worried about to to eat for dinners. Dinners are usually when people have meat, so naturally, it’s the first concern.
Also, if you think about it, many breakfasts are easy to just swap out dairy milk for a plant based alternative and bam, it’s vegan.
In the early days there may be a lot of smoothies and oatmeal. Maybe it’s fruit bowls and granola bars.
But there comes a time, for most vegans, when you are tired of those things and you want more.
You want to remember eggs and cinnamon rolls, pancakes, waffles, and donuts. And you can and should absolutely have all of those things!
Today, we’re sharing more than 60 vegan breakfast ideas that aren’t smoothies.
This goes right along with one of the tips for going vegan that we always give is that you should make a list of all the foods you love and then find a vegan replacement for that.
That tip isn’t just for dinner, it’s for breakfast too! Find vegan replacements for your favorite breakfast or brunch ideas.
Our hope in providing so many delicious options is that this helps people stick with veganism and knowing that this journey is obtainable for everyone.
