16 Dec Simple, Quick, and Delicious Breakfasts
During this time of the year, there never seems to be enough time to get it all done. To help you start your day off with a delicious and nutritious plant-based breakfast, here are a few quick options – ready in minutes!
Blissful Berry Oatmeal
Oatmeal can seem boring, but not if you add some color and fiber. Use gluten-free steel-cut oats, or one of the power blends from The Soulfull Project, mix with plant-based milk (or even plain water), and add sliced almonds for additional healthy fat and fiber. Top it off with some fresh or frozen berries to add sweetness, flavor, and nutrients to take this breakfast to the next level.

Awesome Avocado Toast
If you have whole-grain bread and avocados, you’ve got a quick breakfast on your hands. Choose gluten-free bread, multigrain or even sweet potato ‘toasts’ for this simple breakfast. While the bread toasts, slice up your avocado, a bit of red onion and some arugula. If that’s not available, slice a tomato and top with anything but the bagel seasoning. Pile your toast high with the added veggies and enjoy a simple, nutritious and delicious option.
Banana Nut Smoothie
Even though it’s cold outside, smoothies are a great quick option. Here’s a simple and delicious recipe. Blend one ripe frozen banana, a handful of spinach (or kale, or your favorite leafy green), about 2/3-cup of dairy-free milk (like almond milk or unsweetened coconut milk), and two tablespoons of natural nut butter (peanut, almond, or cashew works great). Blend together and enjoy.
Quick Quinoa Bowl
If you want a change from oats, try using quinoa or buckwheat in a breakfast bowl. Cook it with plant-based milk and add cinnamon, seeds, nuts, and chopped dates for sweetness. This works well with leftover quinoa as well.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Pudding
This is a great option to make the night before – and, who doesn’t love chocolate and peanut butter?! Combine 3 tablespoons of chia seeds with 1 cup dairy-free milk (like almond or coconut), 1 tablespoon of raw cacao, 2 teaspoons of maple syrup, 1 tablespoon of peanut or almond butter. (The nut butter mixes better if slightly warmed!) Seal in a mason jar, or another container with a lid. Stir and top with crumbled nuts or mini chocolate chips before serving.
Berry Blast Antioxidant Smoothie
Another smoothie that will fuel you quickly is the Berry Blast. Start with a cup of your favorite unsweetened non-dairy milk, a cup of raw baby spinach and half an avocado. Blend until smooth. Then add a cup of frozen blueberries, along with a half of a frozen banana. This combination is full of antioxidants, and it will keep you satiated and energetic until lunch. If you want to boost the protein content, add a scoop of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides before the berries!
These quick and simple recipes, will have your breakfast ready in under 10 minutes and keep you fueled until lunch!
