I don’t know about you, but breakfast is always a bit confusing for me. I’ve only been vegan a few months now, and my default has always been eggs and some sort of meat. So now that I’m on a vegan diet plan, I’m having to work hard to find things that I like for breakfast.
I mean, all things being equal, it doesn’t matter if I eat my veggies and beans at breakfast, lunch or dinner. But I have always had an expectation of breakfast being very different from lunch or dinner. While I love having breakfast FOR dinner from time to time, breakfast is just sort of a stand alone thing for me. It needs to be a unique meal.
So basically, that leaves me with a tofu scramble, a tofu omelet, and/or field roast sausage. But as good as those things are, they can get a little boring when you have them morning after morning after morning. This is how I came up with the idea for my vegan avocado toast recipe.
Health Benefits of Vegan Avocado Toast
So I found some whole wheat bread in my freezer (I don’t eat bread very much anymore so I freeze it to keep from wasting half a loaf). After realizing that I had some ripe avocados that needed to be eaten, I was on my way to making avocado toast. But I knew I wanted more then that, so I got a little more creative and healthy with the toppings. This vegan breakfast is basic and simple, but packed with health benefits!
- Black beans – fiber, protein, folate, and potassium
- Carrots – beta carotene, fiber, antioxidants, and vitamin K
- Hummus – protein, fiber, iron, magnesium and vitamin B-6
NUTRIENTS IN AVOCADO
There are SO many nutrients in avocado, it can almost be a meal in itself. Avocados are a great source of:
- Vitamins C, E, K, and B-6
- pantothenic acid
Avocados also provide lutein, beta-carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids.
Holy Moses!! It will be difficult for me NOT to eat this for breakfast every single morning. This vegan avocado toast is so crazy good!!
So at least that’s one more item I can add to my list of breakfast foods. After all, with any form of eating, variety is key!
