This was my post-race breakfast! (The ham and eggs on the side was for my boyfriend).
A tartine is an open faced, usually warm, sandwich popularized by the French. Toast up some fancy bread. I used walnut levain bread from San Francisco’s classic Acme Bakery. Mash up 1 whole avocado with the juice of 1/4 lemon. Season with salt & pepper and spread thickly over your bread. This is all part of my vegan diet focused on healthy fats and satiety!
Alrighty, lunch break over. Talk to you soon.
Vegan banana French toast (recipe from http://thesimpleveganista.blogspot.com/2013/02/banana-french-toastyes-please.html?m=1), friends, football, free streaming of playoff game online with British commentary =_=…best post 11 mile run breakfast ever! (Seriously though xoxo)

Just made some of these tasty pancakes Saturday morning after a warm-up and 5 mile pace run. The smell of pumpkin spice filled Ben’s kitchen and living room making it feel like the holidays. It’s hard to get vegetables in for breakfast, especially if you prefer sweet over savory, but pumpkin puree is a delicious and nutritious way to get a serving.
This recipe is great because you can pour everything into one big bowl and just mix! Get your large skillet and plate for serving ready.
This would make a great Thanksgiving breakfast!
Gingerbread and Pear Pancakes…vegan and fluffy
Ben and I have been making breakfasts together lately. Variations of pancakes are easy vegan recipes! So far, we’ve made banana walnut, gingerbread with pear compote, and chocolate chip pancakes.
What inspired this creation: Zazie’s gingerbread pancakes…pretty magnificent right?
Ben made “compote” from microwaving frozen fruit…so classy. Overall, these pancakes are excellent! Wholesome Chow is a convenient, low sugar mix. They are filling, made from whole grains, and warms your morning tummy with cinnamon spice. The cooked pears make the disk more delectable and special =). Basically, add cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, or pumpkin pie spice generously to your usual pancake mix.
Do you have any other vegan breakfast ideas that omnivores like too?
P.S. I’m going camping in Sequoia National Park & Kings Canyon tomorrow!
I drink carrot juice every morning! It’s especially refreshing after a hot session of Bikram yoga. Carrot juice is great for your skin (but not too much like 3 glasses a day will make your skin orange). After indulging in Jamba Juice’s fresh pressed orange-carrot juice for a couple months, I decided to be more frugal. I buy big cartons of Odwalla’s carrot juice and orange juice. I mix 8 ounces of carrot juice with 4 ounces of orange juice. I like Odwalla because both juices are fresh squeezed and not from concentrate. For some ideas, I’ve tasted Odwalla’s organic blends of carrot and fruit. All are really good and the beet-carrot-ginger is especially healthy and hardcore veggie.
Pomegranate-Persimmon Holiday Pancakes
Happy Holidays everyone! I am alive, well, and sleeping A LOT this week. I’m on winter break and planning to do lots of blogging =) First off, here’s a recipe I made for breakfast.
I had a sample of pumpkin pancakes made with Wholesome Chow’s baking mix at New Leaf Grocery stores (alternative Whole Foods in northern California) and thought it was really tasty and handy. All you really need to do is add almond milk to make some pancakes! Also, my new favorite Almond Milk brand is Califia Farms. They use pretty much all the same ingredients and preservatives as Silk, Almond Breeze, and Trader Joes, but it somehow it tastes smoother and fresher. It was on sale one day at Andronico’s (reason why I’m broke) and I decided to try it…needless to say I fell for the gimmick and now I’m hooked. I buy it even when it’s full priced for $4.49! -___-
I love this recipe because the persimmons add natural, understated sweetness and a soft texture. Therefore, you don’t need to add any sugar or butter to make delicious, fluffy pancakes! I haven’t been eating much dairy so I appreciate simple recipes like this that doesn’t use fake butter or margarine (exceptions for dairy & eggs for my friends’ home-made baked goods infused with love and the amazing ice cream I just tried from Bi-Rite Creamery omgodddzz…good thing this place practices moderation through expensive prices and small scoops!).
TIP: Open pomegranates in a big bowl of water. The seeds will sink and the outside bits will float to the top! Learned this from my roomie!
I miss you guys, talk to me! I have lots of ideas and too little time. But, try this recipe out…persimmons and pomegranates are in season! They look festive and I’m sure the whole family will enjoy them.
Merry Christmas my lovely friends. Let me know what’s challenging for you during the holidays and we can write a post about it!
Fall Breakfast on-the-go:
Taken with Instagram
Hello oatmeal with white beans/pear/almond/cinnamon! I was thinking about you all 16 miles this morning <3 #food #love #running #healthy #fitness (Taken with Instagram)
Who here doesn’t like protein powder? I kind of hate it…but still want to add protein to my meals that aren’t so loaded. For example: oatmeal. Oats are like a blank canvas. The possibilities are endless. Try adding chickpeas/garbanzo beans or white beans to morning bowl of oats for more natural, whole protein and fiber. These mildly flavored beans blend right into the oats and you don’t even taste them!
My Powered up Back-to-School Oatmeal:
Try it and tell me if you like or dislike the beans!
Broccoli Banana Smoothie:
This is quite a luxurious and rich smoothie. It’s perfect as a stand-alone breakfast-on-the-go option since it contains ~300 calories, but fills you up an incredible amount. If you want to also eat something else for breakfast, consider using unsweetened almond milk instead of soy. If you’re really hardcore, just use water, but I don’t think I can handle this recipe without something smoother. For me, I had 75% of this recipe, toast + avocado, and decaf coffee + soy milk for breakfast.
Also, also! If you are trying to increase your calorie intake & and gain needed weight, avocado smoothies are great for giving you calories and nutrition without bloating!
Hi everyone, this was one of my first Green smoothies I made with my new Vitamix 5200 the wonderful sales people at Costco convinced my mom to buy with just one taste of a smoothie. Very simple fruit and spinach recipe from Vitamix’s Whole Food recipe book! I enjoy having a green smoothie and cereal for breakfast! Next, I’ll share one with broccoli and cucumber :D
This is my last day in Cancun and I’m so excited to enjoy the breakfast buffet right right now and swimming in the infinity pool and in the ocean (okay wading and letting the waves crash on me), walking, sketching, and taking photos all day! Of course I did 6 miles of rolling hills this morning on the treadmill, followed by some tricep dips and yoga.

P.S. I can only ship to USA addresses.
Cinnamon Pear Oatmeal
Do you like apple-cinnamon-sugar flavored instant oatmeal? Or do you just want to add some flavor to your bowl of oats without anything gross? Well try this out for change! Pear’s are softer that apples so they mix more easily in the oatmeal.
Easy eggs with tomato, green onion, avocado, salt & pepper. Paired with wheatberry and soy milk…tea and an orange. A complete breakfast for me has protein, fiber, vitamin C, and calcium.
Oatmeal is great, but it doesn’t have much protein. But for just another 100 calories, you can get a whopping 14g of protein from Siggi’s skyr (Icelandic style yogurt) or even 17g from plain Greek yogurt!
Try making Overnight Oats using greek yogurt to power up your breakfast!
PS: And I don’t go an buy oatmeal from Whole Foods on a daily basis…This was on an interview trip! (Whole Foods in Washington D.C.’s Foggy Bottom is beautiful btw!)
