Whether you prefer a sweet or savoury start to your day, it’s surprisingly easy to amp up your protein intake with simple and delicious vegan breakfast recipes. From protein-packed smoothies to overnight oats, these dairy, meat and egg-free breakfasts will fuel you throughout the day while helping you achieve your weight loss goals.
Without further ado, here are 11 delicious, high-protein vegan breakfast recipes that are incredibly simple to make.
1. Avocado Toast
Who knew breakfast could be so simple? There’s nothing quite like the creamy simplicity of a slice of bread topped with avocado. Swap out butter or margarine for a ¼ to ½ avocado to start the day off with some healthy fats. Throw on some thinly-chopped onion, lemon juice, sea salt, pepper and chilli flakes for extra flavour. Choose high-protein variety bread to get your protein fill (some brands boast up to 28 g for two slices).
2. Avocado Spinach Smoothie
Combine the nutrition of raw greens into a coconut-water smoothie for a perfect green protein smoothie. The avocado makes this smoothie creamy without any additional dairy.
- 1 avocado
- ½ cup spinach
- Two scoops of your favourite vegan protein powder
- 2 cups chilled coconut water and blend until smooth.
Give a boost to your green smoothie with a sprinkle of chia seeds or cinnamon. Yum!
