I've always loved breakfast. Before I decided to eat a vegan diet, my idea of the perfect breakfast was a plate of over-easy eggs, bacon/sausage/ham, hash browns, toast/pancakes and a large glass of orange juice.
So what makes my mouth water as a vegan?
I make my oatmeal from scratch. It takes 10 minutes, tops. I put 1/2 cup old fashioned oats per one cup water. I like the texture of the old fashioned oats, but you can choose any kind you prefer. After it comes to a boil, turn the heat down to simmer. Then do something else for a few minutes. Wash dishes or pack your lunch. When the water has been absorbed, remove the oatmeal from heat. Sometimes I'll add a drop of soy milk, but it's not necessary. Then add whatever seasoning/flavoring you prefer. I put in 2 tbls. maple syrup, cinnamon, pecans, and walnuts. So scrumptious!
To make my delicious smoothie, I thaw frozen fruit in a bowl while my oatmeal is cooking. When it's done, I'll take my fruit and put it in my blender. My favorite smoothie combination so far has been with blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. I'll add about 1 cup of soy milk and a tbls. of chia seeds. Blend it all up until it's a consistency of my liking and enjoy a lovely homemade breakfast!
I'm obsessed with chia seeds!
What's your favorite breakfast?
