Question by Chaya: Can you help me with creative vegan breakfast option?
I’m trying to fit into some tight perimeters here….
Can you tell me a creative, tasty, PH balanced, blood sugar stable, gluten, soy and sugar free, low carb/starch VEGAN breakfast?
I know yummy things like pancakes and muffins and french toast can be made vegan… but even using whole grain flours those still are not really healthy for you.
I know some awesome, protein rich scrambles can be made with tofu, tempeh, and mock sausages… but I’m sick of the soy, the gluten and the processed stuff!
I love a good smoothie… but too much fruit is acid forming in the body and I’m working on PH balancing. It is also not always very filling/stabilizing for the blood sugar in someone who has had bouts of hypoglycemia.
I’m no stranger in the kitchen and I’m a vegan of many years, so I’m really looking for inspiration that is generally more creative than simply “saute veggies and roll them in a low carb tortilla” or “spread nutbutter-of-choice on __________”
Anyone want to brainstorm with me here?

Try a green smoothie– less fruit more veggies.
I make smoothies with tons of greens (spinach, kale, turnip greens, etc.), add a little fruit for sweetness, I also add some herbs like lemon balm and I grow my own stevia which is nice because a couple of leaves sweeten it up naturally without spiking the blood sugar. Put in a little juice or water just to get it smooth.
I also find humus really good even for breakfast; Im not vegan so I make a honey & pickled ginger humus (my son’s recipe) for a breakfast humus, but you could replace the honey with something else, it just goes to show you how creative you can be with a pound of chic peas. I eat it on a wrap, slice of bread like a toast spread, or with fruit or veggies or anything really you can scoop it up with.
