3 Easy, Healthy, Breakfasts everyone can enjoy.

In case my ‘nutritional plan’ seemed hard to reach. It is important to remember that each meal can be so full of nutrition that these goals are impossible not to reach. The following are the three simple breakfasts I tend to enjoy in the morning. Clean, Vegan, and delicious of course. Each includes, one serving of whole grains, one serving of nuts, and one serving of fruit. Breakfast on! (and please do, it is, as they say, the most important meal of the day).

  • Slice of whole wheat toast. I have been searching for my favorite type of bread, and I have found my winner so far. It is Trader Joes ‘Whole Wheat Tuscan Pane.’ It is more of sour-dough thick sort of whole wheat loaf. The only ingredients are: whole wheat flour, water, sea salt, and yeast. Music to my ears! Anyhow, I spread on some organic nut butter. At Whole Foods, I can even grind my own. This morning, I used organic almond butter (only ingredient = almonds!). Then this is topped off with sliced bananas. 
  • Oatmeal (not instant), cooked with water. Chop a handful of almonds and then blend into a fine powder (or as fine as possible), sprinkle onto oatmeal. Core and chop one red apple into whatever size slivers you would like, sprinkle this onto oatmeal. Mix ingredients together and top with cinnamon. 
  • Cereal with almond milk. Be careful here, cereal can be dangerous ground. It is important to find something enjoyable, but as clean as possible. Scour the cereal isle at your local health food stores and get reading (the labels that is). Remember, strive for five ingredients or fewer, look for whole wheat options, look for low to no sugar added in. Also with the almond milk, check the nutrition label as there should be no additional sugar added, and there should be 1-2 grams of fiber (if not, chances are there are not actually many almonds within the milk). Slice fresh berries on top of your cereal or enjoy a kiwi on the side. 

THERE YOU ARE, THAT SIMPLE! HAPPY BREAKFAST-ING!

  1. I bet you would love making your own bread, too! It can be so fun to see all the little steps that go into it, and then you can add lots of nuts and flax and stuff to add more fun nutrients. Even berries! Oh gosh now I’m hungry!

    • You are SOO right! A bread maker is actually next on my list to get! Although, I have heard it’s not difficult to make without. Do you use a breadmaker or just oven?

      • I have used the oven a whole lot. I always do the same basic recipe, and it’s not a very healthy one (white flour and not wheat) but I bet you can find some awesome ones to do without a bread maker! Plus, you get to knead it yourself and do all that fun stuff. I have seen quite a few people do it without the bread maker, it gives you more options in terms of the shape, and you get to feel it each step of the way…and you never have to worry about buying replacement parts 🙂

    • Hmm, I will def give that a try very soon. And the fact your making the bread def makes it healthier than most of what’s on the shelves! Whole wheat or not! I want to try jalapeños in bread :).

      • I bet that would be sooo goood! And maybe some type of vegan cheruzo or vegan sausage! the beauty of having it in the oven too is that you can check on it more, and add toppings to the whole thing if you want! 🙂 it’s a super fun process

  2. http://www.dancecompetitionlist.com Thanks for that awesome posting. It saved MUCH time 🙂

  3. Reblogged this on Veg Time and commented:
    lovelovelove quick & easy veg meals!!!

    • Me too!! I too used to think it would be soo difficult, near impossible really, to be Vegan. But it’s easier than ever. Only difficulty is restaurants, as they are not really equipped…. I’ll probably have to blog about that too. But I saw your goal of researching it and hope you’re having an easy time. Truth is I have only been vegan for a few weeks myself! Though I have been moving slowly towards it (and towards eating fully clean) for months now : ).

  4. The fresh ground almond butter on that bread toasted is so good. I could see myself eating that every morning… That is if I could get myself to actually eat breakfast lol

    • I wonder what would happen if you tried doing that for just a couple weeks. Just to see if eating breakfast makes a difference to you. Or even one week just to see. : )

      • Its just hard to eat breakfast when your not hungry. I usually don’t start to get hungry until about 12 or later.

      • Your body should physically be hungry, it’s breaking the fast that you just had all night long. Unless you are doing a lot of late night munching? Or if your dinners are very late sometimes? It doesn’t matter when you eat breakfast exactly but it should coincide with your sleeping habits (eat within an hour of waking and not eat within 3 hours of sleeping — in a perfect world anyhow lol). : )
