Exclamation Breakfast..

So I've slowly been working towards vegan but there are two main problems I can't get past: Breakfast and snacks. I do great with lunches and dinner but for breakfast I ushaly eat things like ego blueberry waffles and pancakes just like junk food kinda breakfast. and snacks I've been lessing them to healthier options that are vegan (I'm only a teenager so you can;t take away my candy and chips!) but what could I make for breakfast mostly? (and don't say smoothies I hate them I can't stand the seeds from all those berries!!!

Are you looking for healthy or just ideas? Here are some of the things I eat (not necessarily healthy - I make up for it with a salad for lunch if I need to)

- breakfast sandwich with caramelized onions, tomato slices and vegan pepperoni slices on a toasted vegan bagel
- plate of hash browns fried up with some sliced mushrooms, red pepper, salt, pepper and a vegan sausage...all topped with ketchup
- on weekends, I cook up a large batch of mini vegan pancakes, separate them with wax paper and freeze them to throw in the toaster during the week
- my usual 'healthy' breakfast is a bowl of vanilla coconut yogurt with frozen blueberries and flax and hemp hearts on top with some granola for a bit of crunch
- for snacks I like corn chips with guacamole or with salsa and cashew sour cream

Hope this helps to inspire you! I think there are other breakfast threads here on VB as well.

Tofu eggs, homemade pancakes/waffles, breakfast burritos (tofeggs, vegan sausage, daiya cheeze, etc), tofu quiche, vegan muffins, granola there's a whole range of things.

You could always make berry-free smoothies. I personally love a combination of mango, pineapple, banana, orange juice and coconut water.

I'm not sure if this answer will be helpful, but you don't have to eat breakfast food for breakfast. You can eat lunch/dinner foods for breakfast, too. My breakfasts are usually soup, beans / corn, pasta, or something else like that.

Oatmeal! You can even make it the night before, so easy, and you can change it up by the things you add (fruit, or peanut butter, etc). Example:

Oatmeal!
Here's another vote for oatmeal. I eat steel cut oats about 75% of the time. To save time, I make mine overnight, as well. Here's my method:

(Makes one very large serving!)

Bring 9/8 cup water to a boil in a saucepan.

Place 3/8 cup steel cut oats in the boiling water. Cook the oats in the boiling water for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Turn off the heat, place the lid on the pan. Leave the covered saucepan on the stove overnight. (And, no, you don't need to refrigerate this. I've been doing this for over 10 years and have never had a problem.)

The next morning, scoop the oatmeal into a microwave-safe container and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. Place in a bowl with your favorite toppings (I usually have mine with a splash of almond milk and either blueberries or strawberries). Enjoy!

Sounds great, @BobJustBob
I refrigerate mine overnight because I live in a warm place and don't cool the house too much. My room temp probably averages 80-82ish.
