Throughout North America, we’ve devolved into downing sweet treats that are basically desserts for breakfast. I’m not criticizing desserts; sweetness in our lives is important, especially when they’re natural and nutrient-rich.
Yet breakfast is a time when we are literally breaking the fast since we ate dinner the night before, which could be anywhere from 10 to 14 hours earlier, depending on when you eat dinner and when you wake up. Our bodies need protein, complex carbohydrates, and a good source of fat and fibre to keep our blood sugar levels balanced, boost brain function and keep us energized and satiated throughout the morning. Often, sweet breakfasts like pastries or waffles or cereals don’t offer us those results.
This is where savoury breakfasts can step in and save the day. If you’re vegan or don’t eat eggs, the typical scrambled eggs or omelette with bacon or sausage just won’t work. Thankfully, there are many savoury vegan breakfast ideas that will get your day started off in a delicious, satisfying way.
