Top Five Alternatives to Eggs for Breakfast

Even if you aren’t following a plant-based or vegan diet, eggs can get boring. However, as a traditional breakfast food, eggs are certainly easy and accessible. If you are sick of eggs or are looking for vegan alternatives, check out this list of five foods that can take their place as your breakfast staple.

Peanut Butter Waffles


  • 1 protein waffle, toasted
  • 1 tablespoon Smucker's Natural Peanut Butter
  • ½ small banana, sliced

How to Make It: Nuts are a great way to transform waffles from a carb and sugar bomb to a balanced breakfast, thanks to their abundance of protein and healthy fats. To make this an all-star breakfast, opt for a KNOW Better waffle, which boasts 18 grams of protein per waffle. Spread one tablespoon of Smucker's Natural Peanut Butter onto a toasted KNOW Better waffle and top it off with one half of a sliced banana.

Vegan Loaded Avocado Toast

How to Make It: Vegan Sausage is a solid option when it comes to upping the protein content of your breakfast, assuming you pick a link with a high nutritional content. Slice up three links and enjoy it alongside a slice of Ezekiel Sprouted Whole Grain Bread that has been covered in one-quarter of a mashed avocado for a savory morning treat.

Banana-Nut Oatmeal


How to Make It: Oatmeal is a must during colder months, and by creating your bowl carefully you can make sure you're hitting your protein goals for the morning. thinkThin's Banana Bread Bowl is a step in the right direction, especially because of its low sugar content. To further up your protein intake, prepare the oatmeal with skim milk and add in one ounce of crushed walnuts for an extra kick of omega-3s.

Tofu Scramble with Toast


How to Make It: Even the most devoted carnivore can benefit from the occasional vegan meal, and breakfast is a great place to start. Saute ½ cup of firm tofu and 1 cup of spinach and mix in a sprinkle of turmeric and ¼ cup of Bob's Red Mill Large Flake Nutritional Yeast for flavor and protein. Add a slice of toasted Ezekiel Sprouted Whole Grain Bread for some high-quality carbohydrates and fiber.

Apple and Peanut Butter Smoothie


How to Make It: Turn your favorite healthy snack into an equally nutritious smoothie with this recipe. Throw 1 scoop of Sun Warrior Blend Raw Plant-Based Complete Protein Powder Vanilla, 1 sliced apple, 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk, 1 tablespoon of Smucker's Natural Peanut Butter, and a sprinkle of both nutmeg and cinnamon into your blender. Once all of the ingredients are thoroughly blended, pour into your favorite glass or to-go container and enjoy your super high protein breakfast creation.
