Well, I suck big-time at making breakfast (I like my sleep waaay to much) so I usually just have two pieces of hard-bread (they sell it at IKEA I'm sure if you don't live in sweden) and cocoa made on oat-milk. Hard-bread's packed with fibre so it keeps you full for a while.
It gets a bit dull after a while though so now since I've heard so many good things about smoothies, why not?
Do I understand the nature of smoothies right if I say it's fruits and soymilk mixed together in a blender? *is going to shop for nice fruits tomorrow*
smoothies, i've learned, work better with frozen fruits. makes it thick and frosty like a shake. Or just use a frozen banana and the rest fresh fruits My favorite- chocolate soymilk, frozen banana, and strawberries (+ some ground flaxseeds) yummy.
Most of my colleagues have coffee for breakfast and Im trying to get them on to soy milk but they all say Eeeeeew soy milk, thats digusting. I haven't tried it but its disgusting' !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Muesli (you can let it soak overnight in your refridgerator) or oatmeal. Or are you looking for something even quicker? I make a batch of banana or pumpkin or oatmeal muffins and freeze the leftovers for quick breakfasts-on-the-go. Or I make breakfast breads, slice them and then freeze the leftovers.
Or make a sandwich before going to bed (using gluten-free bread, of course) and have that in the morning. Who says you can't have a veggie burger for breakfast?

Soy yogurt (a flavoured kind like peach or strawberry) with FROZEN blueberries is devine. The frozen blueberries some how clump the yougut all together and it makes it a velvety smooth treat. Have it with a glass of orange juice (calcium fortified would be even better).
I got some really yummy puffed millet cereal the other week and I have been eating it everyday since. it's very good with vanilla almond milk.
I also make a big batch of smoothies either the night before or when I get up and have it throughout the day.
I put berries (black, rasp, & straw berries) a banana and some orange juice but you could switch the orange juice for apple juice,pineapple juice, or mango juice.
I also add to that flax seed oil and my iron pills. It's really thick and fills me up!
also you could get some millet grains and cook them up as you would oatmeal...it takes much longer to cook but it's pretty tasty with some brown sugar or maple syrup.
You could get some brown rice bread, toast it and spread some kind of nut butter on top.
fried potatoes are good too. I cut up some potatoes add lots of colourful bell peppers, some jalapenos and onions.
you can buy some gluten-free muffin mix from your healthfood store and bake them up the night before.
scramble tofu with onions, bell peppers and seasonings.
I know some of those aren't very quick to make, but you could make them the night before and just heat them up in the morning. And the more you practice cooking or baking, the easier and quicker it becomes...
Let me know if you would like some more suggestions... I will search my brain for more if you'd like
Like to take raw oatmeal and let it soak in the fridge for about an hour in Silk Very Vinalla Soy Milk; then toss in raw sunflower seeds, pineapple, rasins, and cinnamon. Or,,, just zap an Amy's Organic Breakfast Burrito.
how yummy sounding! i made pancakes with strawberry applesauce today and then i nuked some frozen berries with almonds and some vanilla extract until it was steaming and poured it over the pancakes...too good!
I made vegan pancakes for the first time yesterday, they were so good, I was just cooking one and eating it and made my way through the whole batch.
I have discovered that I am a glutton for pancakes.
I was going to make some more but people are viewing my flat and yesterday the whole place totally minged so I had to throw open all the windows to air it and cos its so cold I was sitting on the sofa watching tv with my hat on, hood up and boots on!!!
I enjoy putting ANYTHING on toast.. and also my latest thing is taking any sort of wheat or similar product [rolled oats.. bulgur.. quinoa i have but havent tried it yet.. etc] and either mashing bananas up with it for the consistency or using a little soy milk.. and then adding as much crap as i can. [raisins, fruit, nuts, peanut butter, flaxseed, anything.. you name it and it tastes AWWWWEEEESOME.. ]
it's funny cuz i love so many of the like more complicated things and stuff, but for me i still LOVE cereal with milk alternative, cut up fruit and some nuts...YUM, it's so wholesome, quick and just good
salt, pepper, cayenne for a little kick, basil or oregano for an italian feel, or if not, u could always use cumin for a little smoky flavour. garlic powder because it goes great with it, a little dill makes it taste more 'eggy' and then the nutritional yeast. yum!

I'm not much of a morning person and usually feel a bit
I used to be a stong black coffee and ciggie gal and eat nothing til lunchtime- prob partly how I ended up with an ulcer .
I still don't like breakfast much but I usually have a huge smoothie mid-morning or muesli if I'm in a rush.
it depends on my mood. usually it is either miso or seaweed soup, bean curd skins stuffed with sweet rice, and tea. if i have a sweet tooth then i will make a smoothie with frozen berries, bananas & soy milk, and a glass of coffee.
I love potatoes in the morning. Either grated or leftover mashed mixed with tofu and a little flour and fried until crisp then served with tofuti sour cream and/or applesauce. Another favorite is sprouted grain bread toasted and smeared with peanut butter. Depends on my energy level in the morning.
i dnt usualy like breakfast..i know i should though..occasionally i wake up hungry and i like it, cos i know i can eat then but usualy it makes me feel sick! i dont mind brunch..usually tofu scrabled or i jus nibble on whatever i happen to have or be making for later....
