How to Go Veg

Healthy Breakfast Ideas

  • Hot cereals: oatmeal, cream of wheat, creamy rice cereal, or Irish oatmeal, with cinnamon, raisins and/or applesauce (replace cow’s milk with soy or rice milk). Or for a delicious treat, try grits with cooked greens or tomatoes.
  • Cold cereals such as raisin bran or Cheerios with non-fat soy or rice milk and/or berries, peach or banana.
  • Melon, cantaloupe, bananas, peaches, berries, or any other fruit.
  • Whole grain toast, topped with cinnamon, jam or fruit “butters” (avoid fatty dairy butter or margarines).
  • Bagels (skip the cream cheese; try hummus, nut butters, or jam instead).
  • Oven-roasted “home fries” solo or smothered with “sautéed” mushrooms, peppers and onions.

If you like extra protein:

  • Fat-free meat substitutes (e.g., Gimme Lean fat-free “sausage”)
  • English baked beans or chickpeas
  • Burrito filled with “refried” beans, lettuce, and tomato (hold the egg and cheese)
  • Tofu scrambler or marinated tempeh
