Meatless Monday at the Booth

Good morning Boothers! It's another glorious Meatless Monday here at the Green Phone Booth.

So often when we discuss Meatless Monday, we talk about dinner. I thought I'd change things up today and find out what everyone has for breakfast on Mondays.

I rarely eat meat for breakfast. Not for moral reasons, but more due to lack of time. The kids usually get oatmeal, or some combination of fruit with cereal, pancakes or yogurt for breakfast. When I find myself with a few extra minutes I'll scramble some eggs, but that doesn't happen too often during the school year.

Looking around on the interwebby I found some yummy sounding suggestions including~
  • Bean burrito
  • Trail mix with fruit
  • Peanut butter & jelly sandwich
  • Smoothie
  • Granola bar
  • Blueberry (or other fruit) muffin
  • Cottage cheese with fruit
There's a nice website called The Veggie Table that has a good list of Meatless breakfast ideas, as does

What are some of your favorite meatless breakfasts?

Don't forget to share some of your MM meals with us using Mr. Linky below, or by posting them to our Facebook page.

I love granola for breakfast. I just finished eating a bowl. I make my own:

My lunch break at work is 1pm and I eat breakfast at 7am, the fruit and nuts in the granola keep me full and energized.

I generally have oatmeal with whatever fruit I have frozen (rhubarb until I run out!) and soymilk.

One of my favorite for-company breakfasts is french toast made with thick homemade bread dipped in a mixture of almond milk, maple syrup and cinnamon or nutmeg, then fried in my cast iron pan with a bit of vegan margarine. The bread has to be fairly solid so it doesn't get overly soggy, but with the right bread you don't miss the egg. The almond flavour is so good, especially nice topped with fresh strawberries!

I do a (non-vegan) breakfast of yogurt and low-fat granola with carberry juice. Since I count Weight Watchers points, that weighs in at 3.

I've been making my own granola. I like that I can control the ingredients - no HFCS for us thank you! It's a lower calorie baking fix than brownies.

For breakfast I like to do oatmeal. I buy a big container of plain oats and flavor it with brown sugar and sometimes dried fruit.

Scrambled eggs are so fast & easy. I would love to know your secret for making pancakes faster than scrambled eggs! ;-) Eggs take just as long as oatmeal.

@Pure Mothers - I make a giant batch of pancakes once a month, then freeze them. It makes for a quick breakfast in the morning!
