You Don’t Have to be Vegan to Eat Vegan Food

Oatmeal Breakfast

Vegan Breakfast Ideas

  • oatmeal with brown sugar and cinnamon
  • toast with apricot preserves and a banana
  • coffee with almond milk or soy milk
  • black tea
  • a smoothie with juice or almond milk

Vegan Lunch Ideas

  • avocado sandwich with arugula, onion, and tomato

Of course, these are just a jumping off point, and I tried to stick mainly with simple food that you may even already be eating. There’s a whole world of tasty vegan recipes out there! If you start to feel like your vegan cooking is in a rut, handle it just like you would any other cooking rut: pick up a vegan cookbook for some recipe inspiration!
