Vegan breakfast which can just be lifted out of the fridge and snarfed in seconds?
26

TalullahTheTigress · 26/09/2019 11:52

Any ideas?

I'm not vegan, but like lots of families, we are trying to really reduce our consumption of animal products.

I do the school run and then the baby and I tend to go on to a playgroup or class immediately, so I never have time for proper breakfast. Yes, I could get up earlier, so I can eat before the dcs, but basically, I love my sleep too much!

So today I had no breakfast and then got home at about 11.30 and stuffed my (already fat) face Blush. This obviously can't continue or I will be ENORME by Christmas.

Any delicious vegan breakfast recipes I can eat quickly on the hoof?

Initial ideas are smoothies wirh vegan protein powder, which I could make the night before and put in water bottles and / or breakfast muffins. If anyone has tried any recipes for these and would like to share that would be fab.

I find overnight oats take ages to eat for some reason...

Yes, smoothie might be a plan.

Amy’s Breakfast Scramble Wrap is really good. Takes 3mins in microwave.

Oh that wrap looks amazing! I wonder if I could make my own version and freeze...

I'll have a look at that link- thank you. I, being a greedy bastard, would also end up stuffing my aforementioned fat face at lunchtime if I ate just a banana for breakfast.

If you are overweight start doing 16:8. Then you don’t need to eat until you get home.

Ursula, thank you. Yes, I am a smidgen ok, 20 lbs Blush overweight. The problem is, that eith 16:8 alone, I end up grazing all afternoon. I have had success combining it with 'No S', but that no longer works, as school runs etc and kids meal times get in the way of my carefully planned three, healthy meals in an eight hour window iyswim?

I'm going to try No S from tomorrow. I definitely think I need to break my snack habit and I think that would work for me. Although, I hear progress is very slow on it.

Thanks all for these suggestions as well! I've bought a pack of frozen green smoothie mix and I have a reusable cup with a straw which goes in the cup holder on my pushchair. Hurrah! I also have all the ingredients for tofu based, buckwheat pancakes.

I've seen a recipe for freezable vegan breakfast burritos too, which I'm definitely going to try.

I'm partial to all things nut butter, so yes, a sandwich might do too.

The tofu scramble wrap is lovely, and I'm sure you could reproduce and batch cook in advance.

There's a Mexican rice one that's nice as well.

I made this version of the Amy's burritos last year (Christmas party season hangover cure!) and they were pretty good. www.emilieeats.com/freezer-vegan-breakfast-burrito/

Oh thanks for that choppo. How were they from the freezer please? Do you wrap them in foil? Does it not stick to the burrito so you can't unwrap them to microwave?

Sorry for all the questions?????

They were ace! I wrapped them in kitchen roll and then foil so it didn't stick. Whack them in the microwave, re wrap in foil, chuck in handbag and enjoy on the train. Smile

I couldn’t get on with overnight oats till I realised that you can heat them up a bit.

Oats, coconut milk, cinnamon, peanut butter and banana. Bing in the microwave for 30 secs to take the chill off. Lush!

Chia pudding is nice, I found the texture much nicer than over night oats, or oat cups, cook loads in a muffin tin and then freeze them.
