Whereas we surely don't make such elaborate breakfast meals every day (we like to stay on the simple site of a plain smoothie or oatmeal with fruit for the most part), the following goodness is a great inspiration for those who think a vegan diet is repetitive, boring, and tasteless.

Note: Some recipes do contain oil in their original version. We always try to emphasize keeping them low or skipping them completely, when possible. You can do the same with sugar and opt for healthier sweeteners.​​

So, without further ado - get ready to satisfy your cravings with these 30 amazing recipes.
