Breakfast if one of the most important meals of the day, it helps you kick start your day and get all the things done. When it comes to breakfast for vegans things can be quite complicated, since most of the breakfast ideas revolve around diet that is high in protein and vitamins, like dairy products, eggs, chicken, etc.
Being a vegan means you have to skip all the options that include eggs, dairy, and any kind of animal products. He is a list of my top 5 vegan breakfast ideas that will help you energize your body with the right amount of carbohydrates, protein, and fats.
