Vegan Early Riser Citrus Bowl
Are you sweet or sour in the morning?
Well, I am a little bit of both. Over the past year, I have had to become a work-in-progress kind of morning person. I have never been one to jump right out of bed at the crack of dawn, but I now have a delicious motivation for wanting to be the first one up, so it is no longer as painstaking as it used to be. You guessed it, I do it for the breakfast.
One of the things still to this day that is challenging for most people is finding time in the morning to prepare, eat and enjoy a good breakfast. I am a citrus lover but also have a nagging sweet tooth, so for the sake of satisfying my two biggest morning cravings, I came up with a breakfast that is not just unique in flavor and nutrient-dense, but also one that is simplistic for those with a busy life and schedule, because even the busy deserve breakfast, and a good one I might add.
It checks all the boxes, vegan, gluten-free, etc., and is a do-it-yourself friendly so if you are having a craving, what I have learned from experience is that following them sometimes leads to some of the most delicious concoctions, so experiment away.
