I’m one of those people who can’t just roll out of bread and eat something. My stomach wakes up about two hours after the rest of my body. Still, I have to have breakfast. I usually eat something pretty light, which in the summer means a green smoothie, and maybe a piece of toast. When the weather starts cooling down, the last thing I want is to chug a glass of frozen fruit.
MoFoers have been cooking up some wonderful cool weather breakfast food. If you’re looking for something savory, check out the Tofu Rancheros that Kristen cooked up over at DC Vegan. She uses Tami’s recipe from American Vegan Kitchen. This would make a great weekend brunch!
I love making a big batch of oatmeal and then just reheating them and adding different toppings. Healthy Slow Cooking shares recipe for Pumpkin Coffeecake and Lemon Raspberry Cheesecake Oatmeal with So Delicious Greek Yogurt. Either of these will keep me full until I hide under my desk with my lunch.
Sometimes I’m in the mood for a big stack of carbs in the morning. I don’t know if I want to eat V.K. Rees’ pumpkin pancakes, or hang one of the lovely photos of them on my wall. I think both. Everything tastes better on a stick, and these adorable heart-shaped waffles from Meet the Wikos are no exception.
The Happy Go Lucky Vegan’s Pumpkin waffles also sound perfect for a crisp fall morning.
Sometimes I just want a doughnut. Unfortunately, I’m not lucky enough to live near Voodoo or Mighty O, but I could certainly whip up these Choconut Doughnuts from tahinitoo.
Sometimes I can’t make up my mind and want a little savory and sweet on my plate. For those days, I’d love this French Toast Sandwich with “Cheezly” Hashbrowns and Spinach Chips from Growing up Veg.
I could also go for the Smoky Soy Curls that Tasty Planet serves up next to a nice stack of fluffy pancakes.
Whatever you decide to start your day with, make it something delicious!
