Acai Fat BombsNo-bake “fat bombs” filled with nuts, seeds, coconut oil and freeze dried acai berry powder. Keep in the fridge and grab on your way out the door on a frantic morning.
Acai, Avocado And Strawberry Freezer SmoothiesAcai berries are famously rich in antioxidants. This recipe uses freeze-dried acai berry powder as that is the most readily available source of acai berries for most people. These “freezer smoothies” are great for sipping on the go on a hot Summer morning. You can pop it in your bag (in a spill-free bottle) and by the time you get to work it’s defrosted enough to be sipped with a metal straw.
Almond Butter PancakesEasy, low-carb, high-fat, vegan pancakes which can be whipped up and either frozen or refrigerated until needed. Great for packing away with a few berries and taking to work.
Almond, Hazelnut And Cocoa ButterA natural, sugar-free, homemade chocolate and nut spread. Swirl through coconut yogurt or spread onto nut and seed bread (recipe below). If you can’t find toasted, skinless nuts, simply toast them in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for about 15 minutes until golden, and cool.
Avocado And Quinoa Breakfast Bowls (Quinoa And Avocado)This recipe can be made quickly and easily during a quiet Sunday evening or whenever you’ve got spare time to prep a few breakfasts. It’s great for people who prefer savory dishes in the morning, or like to wait unil the late morning before eating their first meal.
Avocado Hummus (Breakfast Side)A super simple, no-cook recipe to keep stored in the fridge to serve as a side to any savory breakfast recipe for extra fat and fiber. Great as a spread for low-carb crepes or with vegan scrambled eggs.
Black Bean Bunless BurgersBlack bean patties, stacked with avocado, cucumber, tomato and drizzled with oil. One bowl and one tray required.
Black Bean, Corn And Avocado SoupFilling, spicy and Mexican-inspired. Beans and avocado are wonderful sources of fiber. Use fresh beans and corn where you can, but you can absolutely use canned goods too.
Blueberry Breakfast CakeA breakfast cake packed with juicy blueberries and topped with chopped nuts. Great for freezing and keeping on hand for when vegan, low-carb guests are staying.
Breakfast Cauliflower Rice BowlsThese bowls can be made the night before a busy morning. I like to make these bowls when I am using cauliflower for my dinner, as it’s easy to simply set some aside and toss it with veggies while I cook dinner.
Breakfast Mug Cakes (Strawberry And Almond)Mug cakes are made in the microwave in a few minutes. They’re a great way to treat yourself to a hot breakfast with a little sweetness, while still maintaining a vegan, low-carb and gluten-free diet.
Butternut Squash And Ginger SoupA classic, smooth, vibrant-colored butternut squash soup. The ginger adds an extra flavor dimension plus an immune-boosting hit.
Cauliflower And Cannellini Bean Hash BrownsIf you’ve got cauliflower lying around in the fridge and you want to use it up while it’s fresh, make these easy fritters and keep them in the fridge to grab and eat for breakfast during the week. If you’ve got extra time in the morning, heat them up and eat with half an avocado. Note: we cook the hash browns in the oven so you don’t have to stand by a hot stove.
Cauliflower Rice With Peas, Carrots And Coconut AminosA vegan, low carb take on the classic Asian dish, fried rice. Coconut aminos are a near substitute for soy sauce, and can be found in most good supermarkets or health food stores. One frying pan or saute pan required.
Chia And Almond Overnight PuddingChia seeds are a wonderful source of fiber and fat. All you need to do is soak them in liquid overnight so they can hydrate and become soft. This recipe uses almond milk and slivered almonds.
Chickpea Pancakes With AvocadoIf you have a spare moment on a Sunday or weeknight, these chickpea pancakes are easy to whip up and store in the fridge for the week’s breakfasts. Serve with fresh avocado, salt and pepper.
Chilled Avocado SoupA cold avocado soup flavored with citrus and coriander/cilantro. Ideal for hot Summers
Chocolate And Blueberry Overnight OatsA chilled, filling breakfast for chocolate lovers (without the sugar or dairy products). Chia seeds provide a lot of fiber and fat, while blueberries are a great source of antioxidants.
