Breakfast

Postby powerlifer » Sun May 29, 2011 9:05 pm

Breakfast for me has to be one of the toughest to figure out what to eat and keeping it fresh vegan. So any ideas is appreciated.

Usually i will start either with some fruit, a smoothie(green/protein/fruit), vegan proatmeal(i.e oats and vegan protein shake/soy milk mixture), sometimes gluten/wheat/egg free toast and various pates or spreads, vega thrive/wholefood optimizer which is a meal in itself really. Im out of ideas again, i really am not that fond of cereals ill have them now and again, if anyone has links to good vegan cereals that would be good. I tend to avoid gluten/wheat in most cases but fire away any suggestions and ill modify them best i can:).

So yeah anymore ideas is appreciated.

If I am at home and wake up late then I normally make myself a fry up.
With any number of:
- potato waffles
- tomatoes
- toast
- baked beans
- linda Mc Cartney sausages or sausage rolls
- mushrooms
- scrambled tofu
Potato waffles and baked beans always being a given in any fry up.

Else if I am going to work, I go for a 3 phase approach to breakfast:
1st (07:00): smoothie (protein powder, oats, banana, flaxseeds)
2nd(9:00): 4 weetbix + soya milk
3rd(11:00): bagel with coffee

I love my breakfast. This morning I had oats with two chopped pears and a handful of raisins. Other times I have the oats with pineapple, flax seeds, chopped apple, dates, orange, melon or any other fruit. Occasionally I have weeatbix with soya milk.

Thanks for the suggestions:), i can only digest oats raw i.e not cooked as porridge, ive never been able to get a good answer for years if this is ok. I assume so as many add oats to there shakes.

The fry up sounds delish although if i remember them sausages contain wheat proteins and probably gluten. Might have a cheat now and again though.

Fried smoked tempeh goes well in a fry-up. Stick it in with the mushrooms and splash some soy sauce over the top, lush.

I never get tired of my morning muesli: Fruit muesli with added pumpkin seeds and wheat germs, berries, a little flaxseed oil

and soy milk. Usually a slice of fiber toast with pb, orange chocolate spread or cheezly also.

On weekdays, muesli or weatabix is pretty much a staple as I don't have time for much else. On weekends, it's pancakes or french toast or a good scramble with whatever veggies we have laying around and some smoked tofu or tempeh.

Every morning without fail:

100g oats + 300ml soya milk + 15g pumpkin seeds. Leave to soak 10 minutes for optimal results.

My breakfast has been the same now for couple of months which is weird, usually get bored with stuff in couple of days and have to change (which is probably good in terms of variety).

8 wheetabix (or rather the cheap ASDA or Morrisons copies of them) & 3/4 litre of soya milk with strawberry jam

...a slice of heaven...

Dried white mulberries are awesome and super moreish, they are pretty high in protein for a dried berry if i remember also per weight.

Two big bowls of musli, OJ and a couple of wodges of toast.
Musli here is uninspiring to be honest, and a lot of the interesting ingredients are not available to assemble one's own. Dried white mulberries.... no chance :-(
Have to go to France to get Weetabix, though I can get the Dove's Farm stuff (albeit at 4€/24...)
