What my Vegan Kids Eat for Breakfast.
This month I am starting a series called, What my Vegan Kids Eat for Breakfast. People often ask me what I feed my vegan family, so I hope these daily blogs help anyone starting out or gives you ideas for your own families. Please feel free to share what you feed your vegan family as well!
We graze a lot, as many vegans do, so our meals are kind of muddled together. Some of the posts will be broken up into breakfast 1 and breakfast 2.
Every morning we start with fruit and water with lemon. My husband or I go down and get it prepared and bring it back up to the room. The kids sometimes eat it all at once or graze as we get ready for the day. We eat so many types of fruit, so it's never boring. My husband's good at making different shapes and presentations I usually just cut it up and throw it on a plate or bowl! Sometimes the fruit is substituted by fresh juice or a green smoothie. Sometimes all of the above.
Our 2nd breakfast happens when we're dressed and ready and have made our way downstairs. It usually includes some grains like, sprouted grain toast or tortillas, oats or some type of cereal with unsweetened almond milk. On the weekends, my husband does a bigger 2nd breakfast with gluten free pancakes and hashbrowns or french toast with tofu omelletes or something.
1/2 apple in chunks, 1 clementine, 1/2 banana. 1/2 of an Ezekial Sprouted Grain Tortilla with Earth Balance Coconut Spread and cashew butter. I brought up extra clementines, in case they wanted them. My son is currently in love with them will eat a few per day.
Share below what you feed your vegan family!
