A Week of Vegan Breakfasts

July 13, 2020



Breakfast might just be my favorite meal of the day. I love fruit, am not much of a chef so I enjoy the simplicity of cooking easy recipes, and I also grew up frequently hearing the phrase breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

I am a vegetarian, but eat as a vegan while I am home. I have a strong passion for travel, and so while being vegetarian is not too tricky while exploring other countries, it has still posed a few challenges. I feel that trying to follow a vegan diet would be very difficult and would also limit my ability to immerse myself into different cultures. 

While much of the reason that I try to avoid animal products is simply because of the negative health effects, a large part of it also has to do with the environmental benefits. As I mentioned in my blog post in which I shared five simple ways to live more sustainably, reducing your meat consumption is one of the most efficient ways to reduce your carbon footprint; while going one year without paper saves 8.5 trees, going one year without beef saves 3,432 trees. I strongly encourage you check out the resources I included in the post, especially the documentary entitled What The Health.

In conjunction with the video I published on my YouTube channel, I am going to be sharing with you a week of vegan breakfasts. I oftentimes stick to eating a variation of the same breakfast, and so it was very enjoyable to film the video and create this post because it forced me to experiment with new recipes. I hope you find inspiration from at least one of these options, and let me know which is your favorite!
