We’re all about good vibes and starting each day with positive mental energy, but did you know that what you eat early in the day can actually affect how the rest of the day goes?
Eating breakfast – literally breaking the overnight fast – is a signal that it’s time to get movin’ and groovin’. It’s a chance to load up the nutrients and start fueling your body and brain for whatever the day has in store.
Too much sugar for breakfast may give you some pep, but it means you’re packing on unnecessary calories first thing – and you’re probably setting yourself up for a sugar crash by midmorning, which means you’ll be hungry and need more fuel before you get to lunch.
A sensible, well-rounded breakfast will kick your metabolism into gear for plenty of energy and multiple studies have shown that starting the day with breakfast can impact your focus and mood throughout the day.
The downside is that breakfast takes time, and that’s something most people don’t have a lot of in the morning. Another challenge plant-based eaters face: finding delicious plant-based breakfast recipes with staying power so you feel full until lunch.
These hearty dairy-free breakfast ideas are simple so you can enjoy an easy and satisfying start to every day. Even better, they’re vegan-friendly recipes that are also lactose-free and gluten-free so you can get out the door worry-free.
Breakfast burritos are always a hit, and this plant-based take on the classic is a sure-fire winner. Start with tofu (or an egg substitute) and dairy-free Ched-Shred, then fold all your favorite toppings into a warm tortilla. Yum!
