Breakfasts

One of the most common questions we hear from people new to a plant-based diet is “What do I eat for breakfast?” Many of us grew up eating eggs, bacon, dairy, and other animal products every morning, and it can be hard at first to imagine what breakfast might look like without them. As it turns out, it looks fantastic. These vibrant vegan breakfasts and brunch recipes burst with color and flavor.
