VeganMOFO Post #2: In celebration of breakfast!

When I get the old "so, a Ve-gun huh? What do you, you know...EAT?!?!" routine, my usual answer is "the same as what you eat, but with no dead stuff". I think breakfast illustrates this really well. My absolute number one favourite thing to have is pancakes, covered in Vitalite and agave nectar, or peanut butter. But often I can't be bothered to make pancakes, or really cook at all, in the morning. So I have toast, or bagels (with peanut butter and blueberry jam) or cereal. Here is a picture of a bowl of cereal (fruit and fibre) with soy milk and vanilla soy yoghurt:

Here is a picture of cereal, soy milk, soy yoghurt, and grapes!

I love cooked breakfasts too: fried bread, onions, baked beans, hash browns, potato waffles, grilled tomatoes, barbecue sauce. Vegan cooked breakfasts like this are easy to find if you're having breakfast out. I really love it when people come round to the idea that being vegan isn't impossible, or even difficult. I even find it fun.

That looks really good. I've noticed that being vegans and vegetarians have a tendency to appreciate food more. Savouring the appearance and taste. I like that. The whole being more aware of what oil goes in the machine sort of thing. It's refreshing.

I've never done the soymilk/soy yogurt combo. Now, I'm seriously intrigued!
