Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so it’s important to make sure you’re fuelling your body to keep you feeling full until lunchtime.
When you’re following a vegan or plant-based lifestyle, protein-packed eggs that are a filling breakfast choice for many are off the menu, but there are plenty of alternative options to keep you satisfied throughout the morning.
At Garden of Life, our Raw Organic Protein Powders are 100% vegan and organic, and they’re great for incorporating in your breakfast to provide you with extra fuel and filling power.
You can still enjoy your breakfast favourites like pancakes, overnight oats and even a fry-up thanks to a few clever vegan tweaks and our Organic Coconut Oil.
Here are three easy-to-prep ideas for tasty vegan breakfasts:
1. Vegan Pancakes
Adding vegan protein powder into your breakfast pancake mixture can help you to fuel your body before your morning workout. Use plant-based milk (almond, coconut, soy and oat will all add a slightly different taste, so use your favourite), and add any other flavourings or even pieces of fruit you like to your pancake batter.
One of the many wonderful things about pancakes is that you can customise them however you like, whether that’s with fresh berries, agave syrup, desiccated coconut or even some vegan-friendly chocolate chips.
Place the vegan bacon rashers and sausages on a baking tray under the grill and cook according to the packet instructions.
Meanwhile, in a frying pan over a medium heat, melt the coconut oil and add in the halved cherry tomatoes and mushroom slices. Fry for 4-5 minutes, until softened.
Slice the avocado and toast the sourdough bread. Place these onto your plate.
Add the cooked tomatoes and mushrooms to the plate, and finally the vegan sausages and ‘bacon’.
3. Mixed Berry Overnight Oats
Overnight oats are a brilliant quick, easy, tasty breakfast and they’re already pretty filling thanks to their fibre content from the oats.
Adding a scoop of Garden of Life protein powder can help to make them even more filling, providing you with a great source of vegan protein and a little added flavour too. Using our Vanilla Chai-flavoured Raw Organic Protein Powder adds some extra warmth and spice, creating a delicious start to your morning.
