A Vegetarian Useful resource Group member contacted us and requested for breakfast concepts. Right here’s her story. “I’m a lifelong vegan, in grad college, working part-time, and coaching for a marathon. I run early within the morning (5:30 AM), earlier than going on to work. My job is bodily demanding and I’m on my toes for 7-8 hours. Often I toast an English muffin and unfold it with margarine earlier than leaving residence and eat it together with espresso after my run. I pack a lunch and eat it mid-way via my work shift however I’m hungry means earlier than lunch time. What are some breakfast concepts that don’t require cooking? I don’t have time within the morning to prepare dinner nor can I warmth one thing up at work. I’d like concepts for meals I can eat shortly within the parking zone earlier than work with out making a large number. I don’t like dried fruit, yogurt, or power bars”

It’s not shocking that our member is hungry earlier than lunch! Right here’s what I urged.

“Together with your energetic schedule, an English muffin is simply an appetizer. What would make that English muffin extra of a meal? A thick layer of peanut butter or different nut butter supplies protein and fats and reduces mid-morning starvation pangs. For one thing completely different, you can discover the world of bean and tofu dips.  Hummus is available in a variety of flavors – experiment to see which of them you want. Purée or mash tofu with herbs or pickle relish and just a little vegan mayonnaise to make tofu salad. You should buy ready-to-eat dips and spreads or make your personal, maybe on the weekend when you could have extra time. Baked tofu or deli slices are different concepts for a fast, filling breakfast sandwich. Even one thing so simple as a number of good shakes of dietary yeast in your English muffin with margarine will add some energy and protein together with taste.

Discover a vegan breakfast meat that you just take pleasure in, prepare dinner it forward of time and eat it both in your English muffin sandwich or on the aspect. There are many merchandise within the fridge or freezer case at shops or you may make your personal forward of time.

In a single day oats might be filling and refreshing on a sizzling morning, particularly in case you switch the container with the oats proper from the fridge to an insulated lunch bag with an ice pack. Earlier than going to mattress, combine a cup of oats, 1-1/2 cups of plant milk, a mashed banana, and ¼ cup of chia seeds. Stir and refrigerate in a single day. Add fruit, granola, and/or nuts as you want.

Deliver a container of nuts or granola or peanut butter-filled pretzels and eat them alongside along with your English muffin.

Make vegan muffins on the weekend and produce a few them unfold with nut butter.”

I checked again with our member and listed here are a number of concepts that she’s found:

“I actually just like the breakfast sausages from The Home made Vegan Pantry by Miyoko Schinner! I make a batch on the weekend. Additionally, I’ve been including additional soymilk to my espresso (latte rather than espresso with a splash of milk).”
