Ah, the question what’s breakfast on the plant-based diet look like? First of all, breakfast doesn’t have to be boring. It can be nutritious and filling even if you’re eating a plant-based meal. Try this avocado toast to start your day!
Well, it depends on how you normally eat in the morning. For me, I need something that isn’t too sweet and a bit more filling, even though I don’t wake up starving.
Generally, I eat dinner early and don’t eat after about 6:30 or 7 pm. Then I eat again around 8 or 9 in the morning.
A lot of times I’m just not that hungry first thing in the morning but I know I need to get something nutritious in my system to break-the-fast. I love oatmeal but don’t always feel like making it. I know…lazy! So, instead, today, my go-to is avocado toast. I use the thin-sliced Dave’s Killer Bread (which doesn’t make my gluten-sensitivity act up and it’s vegan and organic).
Breakfast On The Plant-Based Diet Doesn’t Have To Be Boring!
This meal always helps me jump-start my morning. OK, a little lavender oat milk latte with a shot of espresso certainly helped. 🙂
What I love even more is my container gardening is really taking off in the winter. So I have tons of fresh arugula and cilantro. I love the nutty flavor of fresh arugula. Sometimes when it’s store-bought, I can’t even taste the flavor.
I like to make my breakfast on the plant-based diet complete when I top my avocado toast with a few more plant-based foods. So, depending on what I have in stock I’ll do something simple like raw pepitas, sunflower seeds, cashews or my favorite, nut cheese. You can find the recipe and a lunch or dinner meal suggestion here.
The best part about this simple tasty plant-based meal is not only that it’s so easy to make. Toast some bread and cut and spread and avocado on it and top it but also it’s highly nutritious.
Avocados are a staple in my home and mostly used in this way, a top of a salad or for guacamole. They’re rich in Vitamins C, E, K, and B6 and many more nutrients. I absolutely love the creamy texture of a ripe avocado with some grain bread, (gluten-free, if you like) it’s fantastic.
