Breakfasts are one of my favourite meals of the day and I think they are important to start your day right. I love everything which is sweet and with fruits and normally enjoy my breakfasts with a cup of green tea. Which is good for your metabolism by the way 😉
The following five recipes are all healthy, include lots of protein and to me they are all super delicious. You can vary them with any fruits or spices, so you get hundreds of different breakfast recipes. If you are trying to loose weight, those recipes won´t stop you. I ate them all during my weight loss period and still eat them now while trying to keep my weight. So they should work pretty good for you, too!
If you want to save calories I recommend you to eat them with berries as they have less calories than most other fruits. Let´s start with two recipes with chocolate, for all the chocoholics out there!
This one has maybe a little more calories, so I don´t eat it too often. But I feel like I´m in heaven when I eat it. It´s warm, creamy and chocolatey. What else do we need to start the day good and happy?!
3/4 Cup oatmeal
1 Cup plant milk (I use soy or rice milk)
1/2 mashed banana
Cocoa (about 1 tablespoon, depending on your chocoholic level)
Mix all ingredients, put them in a pot and cook it for about 5-8min. That´s all! Make sure you stir it a lot so it doesn´t stick to your pot. Some people add sugar to their oatmeal, but I think the banana is sweet enough. Once it´s finished you can eat it with any fruits you like, my favourite is strawberries and blueberries.
If you want a variation you can add some apple before you cook it and cinnamon instead of the cocoa. Try anything which you think might taste good, being creative in the kitchen is so much fun.
I never thought that cake could be so healthy and so quickly baked! I´m sure you will love this one, even my non-vegan boyfriend loves it and he is very critical when it comes to vegan food!
1/2 mashed banana
2 tablespoons flour (I like spelt-whole-grain flour)
1 tablespoon vegan protein blend (if you don´t have it, just add more flour)
1 teaspoon cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
some plant based milk
Mix all ingredients (I just do it right in the mug with a fork). I often add some frozen rasperries, but you could also add other fruits, use vanilla instead of cocoa or whatever you like. Once mixed, you put it in the microwave for about 3-4min. I like too keep the time a bit shorter because I love it a bit more creamy and I top it with some fruits afterwards. I´m sure the oven should work, too, if you don´t have a microwave.
If you want the ultimate chocolate experience you should try it with this simple and vegan choloate sauce: Put about 1 tablespoon of agave syrup in a small bowl and mix it with cocoa until it gets the texture you want. So delicious! This one is also great with ice cream, fruits or any sweet meals.
This one is quite simple, just mix soy joghurt with looots of amaranth pops. You get them at Edeka or Alnatura here in Germany. I use around 150g of soy yoghurt and just add as many pops as possible without making it too dry. Then top it with any fruits you love.
That one is best to make the evening before and leave it in the fridge over night. I add the fruits in the morning so they are fresh. I also added some chocolate spelt crunchies to the pudding on the photo, I got them at Alnatura.
200ml of any plant based milk
4 tablespoons of chia seeds
Just mix everything and put it in the fridge over night. In the morning add your fruits. If you want you could also put the fruits in the mixer and then eat them together with your pudding or add any tastes to your pudding the day like cocoa, cinnamon or agave syrup as sweetener.
Of course we won´t eat real eggs 😉 It´s just silk tofu but you almost won´t notice especially if you haven´t eaten eggs for a while.
200g silk tofu
1 garlic clove
1 small onion
your favourite veggies (mushrooms, tomatoes, pepper,…)
curcuma, salt and pepper
Stew your onion and veggies. If you add tomatoes which I always do, I add them in the end. Turn up the heat and then add the silk tofu.. Squash the tofu so it looks like scrumbled egga, you can also do that before but I always do it in the pan. Keep it cookin until all the water of the silk tofu is gone.
In the end add curcuma (I like to use a lot of it ^^), salt and pepper. If you want you could also add some fresh herbs, I prefer basil, parsley or chives.
