Thank you to Nadine Horn; Jörg Mayer and Netgalley for the Advanced Reader’s Copy of this fabulous book!


Breakfast is one of those meals that’s easy to do if you’re sticking to the basics. Which, let’s face it, often include sausage, bacon or some other type of meat and although delicious to most, there are ways to get around the traditional and stay cruelty free at the same time.

Think of your normal breakfast favorites with a twist and turned up a few notches too. You can still have a bagel, your favorite breakfast burger and even porridge.

Smoothie and Juices

I love a good smoothie and the one section of this book that grabbed me right away was filled with new recipes I hadn’t ever thought of. Take a peek.

Plus….The photography was mouth-watering and made all the dishes look so SO delectable.

Plant–ify your mornings with these 80 delicious, healthful, and diverse vegan recipes for drinks and meals—perfect for every day and special occasions

From clean and green to syrupy and sweet, breakfast and brunch are beloved for their nutritional value and social cachet alike. But what’s a vegan to do in the face of morning spreads of sausages, pancakes, omelets, and lattes?

Add in pantry basics including breads, sweet and savory spreads, and nut milks galore, and this book becomes a comprehensive guide for starting the day full, energized, and focused.

Fast: Unwrap a Breakfast Burrito with mushroom and chickpea “scramble,” or spoon up some ‘Nana Nice Cream with overnight oats for concentrated energy on the go.

  • Filling: Boost your workouts with Power Waffles, Breakfast Sausage, Tempeh Bacon, and mini Breakfast Burgers.

  • Fresh: Relax and greet the sun with a tropical Green Smoothie Bowl, or sip your way to a healthy glow with the Super Antioxidant Shake.

  • Fun: Wow your brunch guests with Glazed Baked Donuts and Pesto Bread, and whip up batches of fresh nut butters and jams for a treat any time of day!
