Vegan breakfast has been the most difficult parts of the new diet. I'm a big breakfast person, especially before a 12 hour shift. Here's some things I came up with:
Tofu Scramble: (an attempt to replace my desired fried egg)
Breakfast sausage (italian or good ol jimmy dean)
Salt and Pepper
Brown the meat, throw in the veggies and spices, last 2 min. throw the tofu. Tumeric is supposed to be one of the major things I ought to be eating-it's one of the Indian healing herbs. Help with anti-inflammation and some other anti-cancer blahblah look it up. And onions contain enzymes that inhibit inflammatory prostaglandins which, is also right up my ally. Of course, that means eating a lot-so I've been trying to eat onions 2x a day and tumeric for breakfast every day. Busy busy.
MMMM... another mornin with tapioca bread, a spread of veganaise and a cupa English Breakfast.
(To replace the fried egg, on whole wheat toast with mayo, and 2 cups of coffee)
Easy Sunday Morning Gluten-Free Pancakes
1 1/3 c. Gluten-Free All Purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 to 2 Tbsp honey or maple syrup (to desired sweetness)
1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp water, warm
2 egg whites, stiffly beaten (set aside)*
*egg free option=substitute 1/4 to 1/3 c organic applesauce
-In a bowl, combine the first 4 ingredients. Sifting yields a lighter pancake but, who wants to actually do that?
-In another bowl combine oil and warm water (or just throw it all in-whatevs)
-Mix dry and wet ingredients ONLY until blended. Then gently fold in egg whites. Don't over-mix or you'll get chewy ones blech.
-Cook em up like pancakes... ya know... blahblahblah
-They're good warm but don't re-heat well
I'd say I do like them better than buckwheat but, buckwheat is easier to make so it will still win the race sometimes.
