You should all try my own personal recipe I've created for an amazingly delicious vegan breakfast bowl.

-1/2 cup oatmeal
-one tablespoon chia seeds
-one tablespoon Maca powder
-one teaspoon cinnamon
-two chopped up dates
-one sliced up banana
-one half cup almond or coconut milk

It's the most delicious healthy breakfast I've ever had.

...I eat it at least five days a week.

...so I eat them once or twice a week.

[Show spoiler]
I used to eat those all the time. I think the soy factor made me shy away from them over time. I wouldn't be adverse to going back to them now and then, but only for a once in a blue moon change of pace. They are pretty good!

Lately, I've been hooked on Quorn's Turk'y Roast.

I don't know if I'm planning on going vegan, but it looks like I'm going to mostly end up that way sooner than later. The older one gets, the more they realize how much food really impacts them. Even simple aging issues, like muscle and tendon inflammation get exacerbated by excessive sugary diets.

Eating clean, in general, does make me feel so much better, both mentally and physically. Eating a plant-based diet feels more substantial, more filling than I ever thought it would.

That is a seriously healthy bowl!

I have oatmeal for breakfast almost every day. I like to add blueberries or chopped up plums and sometimes turmeric.

I'm not vegan, not even close. My body craves meat. I've tried going meatless for a few days, and I just feel sick. I'm a firm believer in the Blood Type Diet. I try to eat mostly organic, free range, grass fed, etc.

My typical breakfast comprises of a vegetable/fruit blend with some other goodies thrown in. Most of this goes in my blend, with some stuff left out if I can't find it at my co-op, Costco or Fresh Thyme store.

Spring Mix Lettuce
Red Cabbage
Carrots
1/2 Radish
Kale
Tomato slice
Celery
Cucumber slice
Banana
Pineapple
Strawberry
Blue Berries
Mango slices
1/2 Kiwi
Big scoop of ground Flax
Almonds, Walnuts or peanut butter
Plain yogurt
Filtered water
Organic whole milk
Vanilla, cinnamon and chia seeds after it's been blended

Two eggs cooked in coconut oil and a slice of Ezekiel sprouted whole grain bread with some grass fed Irish butter (Kerrygold)
...and coffee, lots of coffee.

If working out, which I've not been the last few months (no excuse), I'll also take protein.

It was my first time making it. Here is the recipe I used. I tweaked it a little. Next time I'll make it more my own.

Funk me...that looks good.

How long did it take to make?

How much would you say you spent on the ingredients?

Took about an hour or so. However long it takes for you to chop everything and then long enough for the rice to cook.

Less than $20. I think the spices would cost the most, but I like to experiment with different seasonings so I already had turmeric and smoked paprika. I keep rice and wine in stock too.

The carrot sounded like an odd choice, so I left it out.

I havenít found the best uses for turmeric yet, but Iíve been putting smoked paprika on lots of things. It adds a lot of flavor and aroma.

I have a great recipe for Turkish lentil soup that calls for some paprika.

Very cheap, very simple to make.

...very delicious.

One bowl of Special K has about 200% of what you need in a day and has higher bioavailability than taking a supplement.
This! Thank you for mentioning this important consideration.

If you don't eat a cereal with added B12 every day (and really who does?) then absolutely get a B complex supplement to take every day. You may run low on B2 as well, so a B complex is more useful than a B12-only.

You do not want to run low on B12. It feels awful and can be frightening since the symptoms are similar to some serious conditions. And you might be a vegan for quite awhile before the lack of B12 starts impacting you, so it sort of creeps up on you from out of nowhere. So cut it off at the pass so to speak, before you even notice the symptoms.

Finding supplements that do not contain gelatin (an animal product) is a little tricky but they exist, and from major brands at that, such as Vitamin Code. I use Amazon's "subscribe" option because it is a serious factor for vegans, especially vegans over 40 since everyone's capacity to absorb B vitamins diminishes with age.

I am vegan for 4 years, and I was vegetarian for a year before that. It's very easy, especially if you live in the US or Canada. There is literally everything, from cashew ice-cream to tofurky
It's important though not to eat too much junk food, but oreos are my guilty pleasure.

I'm finding it incredibly easy too. It was harder to give up soda than meat. The longer I've been doing it, the stricter I get. I try to limit oil and processed foods as much as possible. Even vegan processed foods aren't good for you. I try to do whole food plant based as much as possible.

I've lost a lot more weight, I feel great and I have a ton of energy. I am honestly eating the widest variety and tastiest food of my entire life. I've had more great meals since gong vegan than any other time. And healthy!

There are so many great vegan youtube channels. I especially like Mic the Vegan, Happy Healthy Vegan, Vegan Gains, and of course Dr. Greger at Nutrition Facts is the greatest.

I went to a whole food/vegan buffet the other day (not my first time) and it is always very tasty, fresh and delicious. The reason I don't go very often are the prices. Here in Germany vegan/whole food is mind blowing expensive. You'll easily spend double or in most cases triple than what you'd pay for normal food.

Is that the same case in America?

Vegan restaurants are slightly more expensive, and some of the vegan processed food can be too, but staples like rice, beans, and vegetables are very affordable. My grocery bill has decreased even though my volume of food has increased.

Two bananas, small amount of your plant milk of choice, a few spoons of cocoa powder, and ice. Blend and garnish with a few berries. Tastes great and no added sugar.
