Vegan Breakfast of Champions

Whether you’re craving something savory for breakfast, something high-protein, or something sweet, we’ve got you covered when it comes to vegan breakfast ideas!

What is vegan breakfast? A vegan breakfast can really be any kind of recipe that does not include animal products such as dairy, eggs, milk, etc.

Lots of classic breakfast recipes on the internet (and on Fit Foodie Finds, for that matter) such as steel cut oatmeal and smoothies are naturally vegan because they don’t use any animal products.

A Balanced Vegan Breakfast

What we love about a vegan breakfast is that you’re inevitably going to be eating fresher and healthier (if you stay away from packaged goods!) because of the sheer nature of a plant-based diet.

A balanced vegan breakfast should include:

  • real-food ingredients (fresh fruits and veggies)
  • whole grains (oatmeal, whole grain flour, etc.)
  • all-natural plant-based sugars (maple syrup, agave, etc.)
  • healthy fats (nuts, legumes, seeds, olive oil)
