Some of us skip breakfast for so many reasons. Not the time, not hungry, and the latest intermittent fasting. While there is not much I help with if you are not hungry or intermittent fasting. However, if you believe you do not have time, here are some quick breakfast ideas. I was a pescatarian for several years before transitioning to a plant-based diet, so it wasn’t easy to think of breakfast choices.
Here are some of my go-to breakfast choices.
Oatmeal topped with berries, flaxseed, hemp seeds, walnuts, and raisins
Overnight oats topped with berries and nuts
Chia pudding topped with berries and walnuts
Avocado toast topped with sliced almonds
Breakfast burrito (beans and veggies in a tortilla)
Veggie Sandwich or wrap (lettuce, tomato, cucumbers with avocado and/or pesto)
Banana bread or muffin
When making oatmeal, I like making 2-3 extra servings at a time and just store in the refrigerator. Chia pudding and overnight oats should be prepared the night before. I also add my salad to a mason jar so it is ready. I typically make banana bread one day, and my leftovers freeze, so I pop them in the toaster or oven as a quick item.
The avocado toast, breakfast burrito, and veggie sandwich require more time. I use my homemade gluten-free bread, bagel,or biscuit.
However, I would only do a breakfast burrito if I had leftover beans from lunch or dinner the day before. I typically would also slice my veggies the night before, so making my sandwich or burrito takes less time.
