When I am asked how one would be able to prepare breakfast on a plant-based diet, I simply wonder what’s so difficult?
I personally like variety, but my body loves some sort of routine so it knows it will get great nutrients for the whole day.
I turn my attention to simple oats you can buy anywhere, simply shop for the unprocessed kind.
The key here is to buy a plant-based milk. I love cashew milk, it has been my discovery of 2017 – it is light yet creamy and it is perfect for coffees and also to prep some morning cereals. You can make it warm or cold, it is delicious. Almond milk is great is you like that slightly bitter taste that almonds have. Similarly, you can find soya milk almost everywhere. You can find rice or hazelnut milks too. I prefer cashew though.
Finally, when your breakfast is ready, top it with blueberries and maybe some seeds. Each day you have an option to mix an match your cereals, oats and fruit.

Yield 2 servings
This easy to make (if any cooking required at all!) recipe for your healthy breakfast is simple and also versatile.
Choose between different oats and cereals, plant-based milks and fruit. Enjoy hot or cold!
For 2 people (a bowl each)
- 150 g oats (unrefined, whole)
- 1 cup of cashew milk
- handful of blueberries

I prefer my oats slightly soft, so I mix half a cup of oats with a cup of cashew milk. Leave it to soften for 5-10 minutes. Top with 1/4 cup blueberries and sprinkle a tablespoon of seeds. Enjoy!
