Turns out, there's a lot of truth to the saying "breakfast is the most important meal of the day." Once we wake up, our body is ready to remove all the accumulated metabolic waste and toxins after spending the night resting, processing, and digesting. When we finally eat breakfast, we are “breaking our fast," and our body is especially sensitive to the first meal we eat. We can help our body by enjoying a plant-based breakfast full of heart and gut–healthy fiber and phytonutrients to clean, nourish, and energize each of our cells — and provide us with the fuel and stamina we need to face the to-do's ahead.
Ready to get inspired? We're coming at your with this colorful list of energy- and health-boosting plant-based breakfast recipes to get psyched about your mornings. Each dish featured below is high in fiber, oil-free, and made without refined sugars. Best of all? All these plant-based breakfast recipes are simple to make and easily modifiable to please your unique taste buds, so you can take care of your body without skimping on flavor!
