Vegan Mofo: Breakfast

23 Oct

I was doing so well!  But then I just stopped posting.  Now part of the reason was because I was in the middle of mid-term season but the other part was I was just blah on the food front.  Sorry!

But this post isn’t for excuses, it’s about breakfast.  I love breakfast, it’s easily my most favourite meal of the day.  That and brunch, which is still breakfast in my books.  But I often get stuck on breakfasts.  For example, all summer and most of September I was having a slice of ezekiel sprouted bread toasted with almond butter and banana slices.  EVERY morning.  And it took me a long time to get tired of it. 

Now I’m stuck on something new.  Well, technically it’s not new because it’s what I had for breakfast all last winter.  Oatmeal.  I looove oatmeal.  It has to be made with steel-cut oats though as I do not like mush for breakfast.


This is the version of oatmeal I’ve been enjoying, Apple-Cinnamon, trying to use up the large surplus of apples we have from apple picking a couple of weeks ago.  It’s delicious and keeps me full until lunch.  What are your favourite versions of oatmeal?

Oh, and I’ve started another blog.  It’s not a food blog and I’m still not sure if I’m going to keep it yet so I won’t give you the link yet. 

I’ll try not to neglect this blog anymore, there are only 8 days left of Vegan Mofo!

    No worries!!! You’re a busy girl, and MoFo has to be put aside sometimes.

    I CAN’T GO ONE DAY WITHOUT OATMEAL!!! It ALWAYS has to be made with 1 large banana and some sort of nut-butter or seed-butter (my favorites = hazelnut-butter, almond-butter, pumpkin-seed-butter, and sunflower-seed-butter).

    I also love oatmeal! My favorite way to have it right now is with sugar, cinnamon, allspice and cardamom (an idea I picked up in India), with raisins and milk. MMmmmMMMmmm… I wish I could have some now.

    I also have some instant I keep here at work that has dried cranberries and flax seeds in it, I keep meaning to try something with those at home.

    I love oatmeal with brown sugar & cinnamon, but haven’t made it in far too long! Your apple version looks fantastic & much healthier than mine. :o)

    I am a creature of habit with breakfast as well! I should try oatmeal, I need something more filling.

    I’ve been oatmeal obsessed! Seriously, no breakfast has ever been more satisfying and I’m not hungry all day!

    My favorites are: pumpkin, apple pie (with shredded apples and cinnamon) and peanut butter cup! MMMMM

    This picture is amazing. I love oatmeal as well. Steel cut are the best. I never have the time for stove top cooking. I cook it in the microwave oven. I posted the instructions here:
