Ultimate Tofu Breakfast Burrito Bowls

Rating: 4.79 stars
Tofu scrambles up just like eggs, and with some clever spices, even non-vegans will barely notice the difference. Try setting out toppings to let family or guests assemble their own burrito bowls.

Superfood Breakfast

This is a great tasting, quick breakfast concoction jam-packed with superfoods.

Easy Egg White Omelet

Rating: 4.38 stars
This is my go-to breakfast every morning. Fast, easy, foolproof, customizable, and packed with protein, all for fewer calories than your average fast-food breakfast sandwich.

Purple Power Smoothie

Rating: 4 stars
Think you might need an extra boost? Add a scoop of protein powder or a tablespoon of almond butter.

Gluten-Free Hot Breakfast Cereal

Rating: 4.65 stars
This is a whole grain blend of 8 gluten free grains and seeds which are ground in a coffee grinder and cooked. Since going gluten and casein free I have been unable to find any hot breakfast cereals that we enjoy. So I created this one and the whole family loves it. Serve with brown sugar, agave nectar, honey or fruit.

Tempeh Breakfast Sausage Patties

Rating: 5 stars
This is a great vegan, cholesterol-free alternative to pork breakfast sausage. It's very easy to make and can be made ahead for a quick weekday breakfast.

Perfect Summer Fruit Salad

Rating: 4.61 stars
The perfect fruit salad for a backyard bbq or any occasion. There are never leftovers! This is one of my favorite fruit salad recipes, as I think the sauce really makes it. This salad is tastier the longer you can let it soak in its juices. I prefer 3 to 4 hours in the refrigerator before I serve it. Enjoy.

Overnight Oats Blueberry Smoothie Bowl

Rating: 4.67 stars
I combined overnight oats with blueberries, banana, and almond vanilla milk and turned it into a yummy blueberry smoothie bowl! Top with whatever seeds, nuts or berries you enjoy!

Paleo Hash

Rating: 4.78 stars
I was craving a hash and decided to throw together something that was paleo-friendly. The sweet potatoes in this give it a touch of sweetness, the chorizo gives it a flavorful punch, and the egg tops this dish off perfectly! It is an easy dish to choose different veggies and make it your own! Have fun with it!

Morning Fruit Bowl

Rating: 5 stars
This is a very healthy breakfast, for when you just want to start your day with something fresh in the summer. You can use maple syrup instead of agave, and add other nuts or fruits too.

Healthier Basic Crepes

Rating: 4.36 stars
I love this recipe because it is so simple to make. I have made it healthier by substituting whole wheat flour and 1% milk. I like to fill them with non-fat plain Greek yogurt and blueberries warmed in maple syrup. Yum!

Feta Eggs

Rating: 4.59 stars
A very TASTY way to add zip to boring scrambled eggs.
