VeganMoFo VI: It's Breakfast...It's Breakfast Time


So today marks the first day of me enjoying breakfasts from around the world.  If you don't know, breakfast is kinda my thang.  It's an obsession.  I think if lunch and dinner were completely stopped tomorrow, I'd die happy.  Nothing compares to breakfast.  Any time of day or night.

I decided to start off my adventures in France.  Mostly because I love the simplified nature of it.  From what I read, breakfast isn't so much of a big deal over there.  In 'Merica, we tend to have plates of grease, sweets, and starches.  Over there, a simple pastry or baguette, some jam and/or butter, and some coffee.

Today's breakfast has all the sophisticated simplicity of a French meal, complete with the pig mug.  Oh, and I kinda hate coffee most of the time...so I was drinking English breakfast.  Word to yo motha...

food styling at its finest.  haha.
Okay.  So, because this meal is so simple I also wanted to tell you folks about the best vegan burrito I ever did had.  AND...it's a breakfast burrito!  My work recently started carrying Sweet Earth Foods burritos.  When I saw that they were all vegetarian, I was stoked.  However, when I saw that there was a vegan breakfast burrito, I freaked the fork out!  I'm talking...I bought one a day for about three or four days.  And I kept telling coworkers and customers about them.

I tried all the vegan flavors!  There's Kyoto (edamame, adzuki, shiitakes), curry tiger (lentils, curried seitan, potatoes), anasazi (anasazi beans, chipotle seitan, butternut squash), and the Big Sur breakfast burrito (tofu, seitan, potatoes).  These things are really good.  Nobody is paying me to say this either.  I bought those suckers with my own money.  Yada yada yada...

you can't yada yada this burrito
Tomorrow, I'll geek out about a local bakery and visit the Caribbean.  Plus...PANCAKES!

I love the simple French brekkie--with soy cafe au lait (Loving the pig mug!). Those burritos aren't available here....quelle bummer.

Check out the piggy mug! Mine would hold tons of black java jolt, but hey that is so cute, and so is the breakfast and the cheap ass meals. Thank you, Mo!

I love breakfast so much! I could definitely eat it at any time of day.

I think I love breakfast as much as you do. I'm gonna seek out that burrito when I'm in the US!

Are you gonna make yourself a full English (or Scottish) breakfast?

hey, that's good to know about those breakfast burritos... I think I've seen those around somewhere. Also, I love your breakfasts around the world idea. I have a theory about breakfasts and desserts being the area where we are the most sentimental and least adventurous in our eating.

I lived in France for a while and I never could give in to the baguette and coffee type of breakfast. Not filling enough for this hungry vegan used to oatmeal and breakfast sandwiches.

That said, I miss the luxury of having fresh, cheap baguettes whenever I please. Such a satisfying guilty pleasure.
