I get this question occasionally, so I thought I’d do a short post on my current favorite vegan breakfast choices from my Vegan Athlete Diet. I keep it pretty simple so that a lot of thinking is not required. Or excuses made because breakfast really is the most important meal of the day …

One of the grain/complex carbohydrate choices below plus a Vegan Shakeology Smoothie

For breakfast grains, here are my main staples:

  • Old-fashioned cooked oatmeal (not microwaved!!) with fresh or frozen berries, chopped nuts, cinnamon and a drizzle of agave syrup, molasses or maple syrup
  • Vegan waffles slathered with peanut butter, almond butter or cashew butter and topped with fresh fruit
  • Breakfast quinoa with berries & chopped nuts. To make what I call “breakfast” quinoa, I cook quinoa using half water and half almond milk. I also sprinkle in some cinnamon as it starts to cook to infuse that. Delicious!

I have some great vegan cookbooks, so I’ll be trying some new breakfast recipes and will share those, too, after some experiments as new Vegan Athlete Diet posts.
