Vegan Breakfast: Healthy Tofu Scramble

The vegan breakfast of champions! First of all, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Most noteworthy, it is what gives you fuel for your day and, as a result, helps kickstart your metabolism. Because you won’t be starving by lunchtime if you’ve eaten a good vegan breakfast, you are therefore more likely to make healthy food choices later in the day.

If you are doubtful, there are plenty of studies that show that breakfast eaters are healthier – like the study which found that people who frequently eat breakfast have lower rates of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and finally hypertension. Yet, there is a catch to the whole breakfast-health connection: especially relevant, you’ve got to eat a healthy breakfast if you want to reap the benefits.

By loading up on junk food in the morning (like those sugary cereals we love so much), you can experience a blood sugar spike and subsequent crash as a result. Thus once your blood sugar comes crashing down, you will feel tired and hungry for more sugary foods. Furthermore, these typical junk food breakfasts consist of only one or two food groups, so they aren’t giving your body the nutrients it needs to sustain itself until the next meal. To make matters worse, many typical breakfasts — like bacon, eggs, and toast — contain too many calories and burden the digestive system. Consequently, you end up feeling weighted down instead of energized for the day.
