Breakfast Ideas: 7 High-Protein Vegan Breakfast to Kickstart Your Mornings

As a vegan, you might often find it difficult to include enough protein in your regular meals. That’s because most of us think that when it comes to protein, meat and eggs are the best sources.

That might be true, but it’s also a fact that there are a large number of vegan foods that you get a good amount of protein from. In fact, some plant proteins are considered even healthier than dairy or animal proteins. (1)

So, the next time you are looking to prepare a breakfast meal that is free of eggs, but rich in protein, make sure to check out this post for the 7 best high-protein breakfast ideas for vegans.

We need protein not just as a way to build or repair muscles but also to give us sufficient energy for the day. A healthy breakfast, like the ones mentioned here, can give you about 15 to 30 grams of your daily protein needs. Cool, right?

So, what are you waiting for? Let’s dive right in.
