What are vegan toppings that I should add?
Cream cheese is a no brainer, but obviously it’s not normally vegan. Luckily, it’s getting easier for you to find vegan cream cheese; however, you could also make our cashew based vegan cream cheese or our nut free soy free vegan cream cheese.
Other options include:
- vegan cream cheese from above with fresh fruit
- peanut butter or other nut butter with agave or fresh fruit
- mashed avocado
- breakfast sandwich – vegan sausage or bacon with vegan eggs and vegan cheese
- hummus and your favorite toppings
- vegan chicken salad
- vegan tuna salad

The possibilities are literally endless.
