Nothing like a classic tofu scramble! Also there is an awesome vegan French toast recipe on the recipe section of these forums!

It really depends on the sort of foods you like.

For me a breakfast could be a banana and a cup of coffee,

a tofu scramble,

a bean and rice burrito

or my current favorite:

Nature's path psyllium cereal with some organic yogurt, milled flax seeds and frozen raspberries. It only takes about 3 minutes to assemble, but it's the most decadent breakfast!

Most days I eat a cup of organic non-fat plain yogurt (or you can do any kind of yogurt) with half a cup of granola and half a cup of berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries) mixed in.

On the weekends I like oatmeal with raisins,walnuts, ground flaxseed, and cinnamon.

Sometimes I'll make a smoothie, or have toast with fruit jam or hummus.

yesterday I had grapefruit and tried some toast with nutritional yeast sprinkled on top - it was really good .

Pancakes are good, especially if you can use a mix and just add one or two ingredients to cook them up quick ... or make some ahead and freeze them to reheat in the toaster oven or microwave ....waffles are good like this too

raisin bread toast, bagel or english muffin with peanut butter and banana slices.

a quickbread slice or a muffin with some fruit or nut butter

I really don't see much difference in breakfast food than any other food. I tend to eat a heartier breakfast than I do lunch with dinner often "grazing." I don't like a breakfast that requires a lot of preparation time.

Don't laugh but my top favorite breakfast food is bean soup. I make a big pot of bean soup, put about a cup worth in a bowl, and heat it up. Maybe I have a piece of toast too. It is a substantial breakfast and gives me lots of energy.

If I am really rushed, I have toast with peanut butter, and fresh or dried fruit (like a hand full of raisins, or an apple). Pretty soon the tomatoes will be ripening and I have grapes and blackberries outside so I will make some jelly or jam. Basically, I go for carbs (for quick energy) some protein (beans, or peanut butter to last you till lunch).

I just made a great simple bean soup with portabella mushrooms, onion, and garlic, and a bit of olive oil. Very Italian. I'll be eating that for breakfast all next week.

Basically, You can eat anything for breakfast, not just breakfast food. Cereal companies brainwashed people into doing that, but I don't see why it is necessary.

--oatmeal with maple syrup

--tofu scramble wrap

--ezekiel raisin bread, lightly toasted with cashew butter

--some kind of cereal w/ soymilk (trying to cut down on cereal)

--sometimes i'll have an egg (cage-free) over-medium w/ sauteed shrooms on a slice of focaccia w/ pesto. if i'm feeling industrious

Tofu scramble with home-fried potatoes and green chile sauce in tortilla.

Rice pudding - made ahead of time, eaten cold.

Toasted corn tortilla with mashed beans and melted "cheese" of your choice.
