Store-bought vegan breakfast foods are a total life-changer. Before moving to a plant-based diet, a lot of people are daunted by the prep work. After all, not everyone has the time to spiralize veggies
or make banana "nice" cream
breakfast bowls on a daily basis. That's where store-bought vegan foods come in. There's so much on the market these days that finding a quick, cruelty-free morning pick-me-up is easier than ever. With these 14 foods you'll have the fuel you need to make it to lunchtime with a smile on your face.
Kite Hill Dairy-Free Chive Cream Cheese ($7):
You won't believe Kite Hill's cream cheese is vegan. It's so creamy, tangy, and herbalicious that you'll want to slather a ridiculous amount on your bagels.
Amy's Tofu Scramble ($5):
Skip the scrambled eggs in favor of this healthy tofu scramble. It'll give you the protein boost you need in the morning.
Chia Pod Coconut ($4):
When you're rushing around in the morning, it's easy to be forgetful. That's why the hidden spoon inside the cover of these Chia Pods is such a lifesaver — you'll never have to attempt eating breakfast with your car keys as a utensil again.
Upton's Naturals Bacon Seitan ($4):
Chewy, smokey bacon seitan will fulfill all your breakfast desires. It's especially good chopped up and sautéed with some tofu to make a savory scramble.
Simple Truth Meatless Breakfast Patties ($4):
We won't rest until we've tried every vegan breakfast sausage on the planet. Slap some in a pan and sandwich between toasted English muffin halves, and you've got a hearty breakfast.
Kashi Sweet Potato Quinoa Bowl Frozen Entree ($5):
If you love savory breakfasts but never have time to cook in the morning, this meal's for you. Just pop it in the microwave and a few minutes later you have a protein and veggie-packed meal that will keep you going until lunch.
Kite Hill Vanilla Almond Milk Yogurt ($2):
For a lighter breakfast, Kite Hill's got you covered. You can get their yogurt in a variety of flavors, but the classic vanilla is always a safe bet.
Amy's Gluten-Free Tofu Scramble Breakfast Wrap ($4):
Don't be put off by the fact that these breakfast burritos are gluten-free. The crepe-like wrap gets nice and crispy in the toaster oven, adding tons of texture for a satisfying meal.
Sweet Earth Benevolent Bacon ($4):
Thick and "meaty," this is one of the better vegan bacons on the market. It can stand up to sandwiches and veggie burgers no problem, but it's also delicious on its own.
