Regardless of what dietary restrictions we may have, we’re all constantly on the lookout for quick and easy breakfast ideas to fill our rushed mornings. If you’re a vegetarian, or simply someone who is trying to eat less meat and more vegetables, grabbing a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich on your way into the office is off the table.
Luckily, it’s pretty easy to eat meatless in the morning when ingredients like fruit, yogurt, and oats often take centerstage. What’s more is that there are so many smart opportunities for sneaking vegetables onto your plate or into your bowl, even if you never considered it previously. Here are 10 great vegetarian breakfast ideas to inspire your morning routine.
