Breakfast is the perfect area to get started on a vegan journey! Meal planning isn't as overwhelming as you can easily switch out ingredients to make them vegan. In this podcast episode I talk about what a vegan breakfast looks like and how to plan it.

Tips from the episode:

Put breakfast on autopilot - Try not to overthink breakfast

Plan 1-2 breakfast meals a week - You can start with oatmeal, pancakes, smoothies and bagels

Replace your non-vegan ingredients with vegan options - You can even eat vegan scrambled eggs using Follow Your Heart vegan egg and by making tofu scramble.

A few weeks ago someone asked whether or not my 3 sons (14, 12, 11) are vegans.
Even though my kids eat vegan meals at home....they are not vegans. 

Does this surprise you?

It sure surprised the lady who asked that question.
