Breakfasts have always been thought of as egg-based dishes. From the traditional egg, bacon, and toast to the delicious egg benedict creations, eggs have defined breakfasts throughout history. But just because you have either given up eggs and are pursuing a vegan life, or cannot eat them at all, doesn’t mean you should have to forgo a delicious breakfast.
There is no shortage of egg free breakfast recipes out there. Eggless breakfasts are certainly as beneficial to you as breakfasts that center around eggs. With the right ingredients, gluten-free substitutes, and plant-based ingredients, you can make sure you start the day off right.
From on-the-go breakfast bars to protein-packed bowls, you will soon see that there is no need for eggs in the morning.
