5 Vegan Breakfasts in 5 Minutes or Less

5-vegan-breakfasts-in-5-minutes-or-lessI have subscriptions to several vegan recipe newsletters that come daily, weekly, and monthly. I always marvel at the pictures of French toast, pancakes, omelets, skillets, quiches, etc. And if I had a personal chef, I may even have him make me some of those jewels every once in a while.

But the reality is, I don’t like to cook or prep or mix or stir or flip or clean or anything where I am spending more than 5 minutes in the kitchen. And if I’m like that, there has to be 1 or 2 others out there like that too.

Which is how I came up with my title “throw-together vegan”. This basically means I take foods and toss them together to make an easy, simple, quick meal.

Over the years I have gotten pretty good at this, so I wanted to share 5 super easy vegan breakfasts with you since most of my clients tell me they skip breakfast because they don’t have the time or energy to make it in the mornings.

Here are 5 easy vegan breakfasts…

1. Fruit. This is the easiest because it requires no prep time (unless you consider peeling a banana prep time), cook time, and you can do it on the run. Plus fruit is super nutritious and low in calories so you could eat 7 servings and still be under the calories in a Mocha Latte from Starbucks. Any fruit will work. And eat it until you are satisfied. Chew your fruit though, don’t just drink fruit juice. You want the fiber which will balance the sugar content of the fruit.

2. Protein or Meal Replacement Shake. These are also super easy because you mix your protein powder with water or another liquid like almond milk in a shaker cup or mini bullet. You can even drink out of the cup/blender to save clean up time. I recommend a plant-based shake mix like Shakeology, Vega, or Aloha.

3. Smoothie. This is a little more complicated and it’s easier when you have a high powered blender like a Vitamix, but basically you mix fruits, veggies, supplements, and protein powder in a high speed blender, blend, and drink. You do have to clean the blender which takes 2 minutes and it’s slower to drink a smoothie, but you can drink it in the car on the way to work or dropping the kids off at school, so still super convenient.

4. Juice. No, not a glass of OJ, I’m talking a GREEN JUICE which requires a juicer, so a little less feasible for the average person, but if you DO have a juicer, this is a great way to get in a TON of nutrients quickly and efficiently. Pick 5 random veggies and 2 fruits and feed them into your juicer. Out comes a big glass of energy and power! The juicer does take longer to clean than the blender or mini-bullet, but it’s still not too time consuming. And again, you can drink your juice on the road. Juicing is the most expensive of the 5, but is super packed with nutrients so it’s worth it.

5. Oatmeal. If you just HAVE to have something hot and heavy in the mornings, oatmeal or another hot grain (rice, quinoa, barley, buckwheat, etc) is an easy (and cheap) fix. You can microwave a bowl for yourself in 2 minutes, top with ANYTHING you desire (makes it good for the whole family…choose your own toppings) and then eat. This is definitely harder to eat while in transit, but is still possible if necessary.

So there you have it! 5 super duper easy (and healthy) vegan breakfasts that you can prep, clean, and eat in 5 minutes or less.

No more excuses!! Make yourself and your health a priority!
