Vegan MoFo – 1 Rise and Shine! Tell Us About Your Breakfast. 2 Recreate and meal from your childhood.

Right, so I am a day behind the other Vegan MoFo’ers. In my excitement to join in on the daily vegan blogging challenge I missed that this year there is a theme to follow! So today we will have two posts in one so I can catch up. 🙂

I am not a huge breakfast fan. I keep trying to start the day with a variety of healthy breakfast options (green smoothies, muesli etc… actually I love green smoothies) but I am such a fan of Real Food that more often than not I eat leftovers for dinner or skip breakfast all together in favour of a lunch served around 11 am. A few days ago for example, I woke up and whipped up a quick bowl of minestrone for breakfast. I justified it by telling myself that now I am (nearly) 42 I can eat what I want.

Today however I very unusually had a cereal craving. So breakfast was weetabix, soy milk, cheerios, bran flakes,  walnuts and sunflower seeds.  Baby-Gusto is also not much of a breakfast eater…… and recently has been a vegetable refuser…… so I made him beans on toast. In time-honored ‘Sneaky Mummy’ mode I spread his toast with a thin layer of mashed avocado and sprinkled in a few crushed sunflower seeds before covering the lots with baked beans. Yum.



For Day 2 of Vegan MoFo we were tasked with recreating a meal from our childhood. I have not been as creative as many other bloggers, so went with a simple pumpkin soup with ‘cheesy’ croutons. I used vegan sliced cheese.



The pumpkin soup was a simple blitz of onion, 2 sticks of celery, 1 clove garlic, 2 carrots, 1 sweet potato and a whole butternut pumpkin. Topped with a sour dough and ‘cheese’ crouton. Gorgeous lunch.

I’ll post a link to other Vegan MoFoers daily. Today, check out JoJo.

JoJo is Vegan In Brighton. Except that she is currently touring Europe, lucky thing. 🙂
