Breakfast has long been associated with bacon and eggs, but if you're vegan — or just trying to cut back on meat, eggs and dairy — the standard breakfast fare isn't always an option.
Instead of reaching for the "fakon" check out the slideshow below for 23 filling vegan breakfast ideas that will satisfy all your cravings. From sweet blackberry doughnuts with a fruity glaze to a savoury cauliflower huevos rancheros sans the huevo, these mouthwatering breakfast ideas are so delicious you'll think you're eating the real deal.
If you aren't ready to commit to a full vegan diet, celebrity trainer and author Jorge Cruise suggests trying it for breakfast only. In his new book tiny and full Cruise says eating vegan for breakfast can fill you up without causing you to consume too many calories.
While not all of the recipes in the slideshow are low calorie, it's safe to say they're still lower than their non-vegan counterpart, so bring on the (vegan) hollandaise and "buttermilk" pancakes, and enjoy!
