Because eggs, bacon, and buttermilk pancakes are the holy trinity of breakfast foods, the words “losing your religion” might accurately describe the experience of trying to eat vegan at Sunday brunch. The whole “no-eggs, no-dairy, no-meat” thing is bound to leave breakfast aficionados with little else but an impending existential crisis on their hands: What IS breakfast without bacon and scrambled eggs, anyway? Even if you’re OK with a quick and dirty breakfast most mornings, finding a satisfying plant-based alternative to grab-and-go yogurt parfaits might seem like more of a struggle than you’re ready to bargain for in the morning.

You could technically eat a bowl of soggy wheat bran and soy milk every morning and call it good, but you should know that sad cereal isn’t the only option (sorry, wheat bran)! A vegan breakfast is your invitation to get creative with the abundance of fruits, veggies, grains, nuts, and seeds already at your disposal. On the typical breakfast plate, a massive omelette takes center stage and fruit is served in a teeny-tiny cup. A vegan breakfast dares you to imagine how things could be different.

Recreating vegan-ized versions of hearty breakfast favorites – like eggz, cheez and fak’n – is just one way to switch things up. In the vegan breakfast-making world, all the ingredients typically seen as unorthodox to eat in the morning are fair game. Thanks in no small part to the versatility of plants, and the ingenuity of many a vegan trailblazer, there are a whole host of flavors and dishes now up for grabs in the AM. Vegan breakfast is a chance to upend the old rules.
