Breakfast is my absolute favorite meal of the day. No hesitation in that statement. In fact, I would like to campaign to make breakfast foods a part of every meal.
In the beginning of my veganism I never really knew what to eat for breakfast. I didn't know anything about tofu scrambles and my first pancake ventures ended horribly. So I decided to take pictures of what I ate for breakfast this week.
Often times it's just a smoothie or maybe some oatmeal. Sometimes, I'll just eat leftovers from dinner. As witnessed here:
|eggplant rollatini and kale salad|
With VeganMoFo going on, I've had to eat leftovers for breakfast or freeze a lot of stuff. It's much harder to cook new things everyday than I thought! Ha ha. Here are some leftovers from last week's Iron Chef challenge. The bowl looks deceptively big. It's only 1/2 cup and the plate behind is a tiny appetizer plate.

Some days I'll crave something super sugary for breakfast: cinnamon rolls, cake, fritters. Other days I only want a green smoothie or juice of some kind. I love juicing carrots because they almost get a creamy texture.

Yesterday I woke up and wanted an epic breakfast, so I had a full English (a first for me)! It was seriously delicious, though I'm making my own sausage next time.
|sausage, baked beans, creminis, sourdough toast, scramble, potatoes, fresh tomato, and English breakfast tea|
Last night we went out with a friend to see a deejay in Palm Springs. I guess staying out as late as we did got to me because I woke up with a sore throat. I opted for tea and cream of rice this morning. Cream of rice is my absolute favorite! I eat it with a bit of cashew butter and brown sugar. I just noticed that my health food store sells cream of brown rice, so I'll have to try that next time.

Other breakfast regulars for me are: pancakes, cereal and yogurt, toast with Earth Balance and jam, breakfast tacos, fruit and yogurt, muffins, smoothie made with frozen fruit and pea protein, and Barnard's brown rice breakfast (from How It All Vegan).
