There are several good reasons why you may not want to start off your day by cracking open an egg. Eggs are chock full of saturated fat and cholesterol, and a recent study found that an egg-eating habit can be just as bad for you as a smoking habit. According to the study, the narrowing of the carotid artery in egg-yolk eaters was found to be two-thirds that of smokers.
Or perhaps you’ve been intrigued by new studies coming out about how important your gut bacteria are for your overall health. One such study found that eggs yolks contain a compound called lecithin, which the bacteria in your gut convert into a chemical known as TMAO. High levels of TMAO have been linked to an increased risk for a heart attack or stroke.
Whatever the reason may be, these amazing recipes will make it a lot easier for you to skip your morning omelet (at least one that’s made with eggs!).
This is a fluffy vegan omelet that is well-suited to a special breakfast or brunch get-together. Your guests will be impressed. This recipe is formatted for six people, but it can easily be made for four or two. You can serve six people in a short time once the batter is ready, even with only one or two skillets, but extra skillets do help.

This is sorta like an Eggs Benedict meets Eggs Florentine… sorta. But It’s yummy regardless of what you call it. It’s entirely plant-based, and to keep it light and healthy, we replaced the bread with a tomato slice. but that’s up to you!
This recipe uses a simple combination of oils, spices and one “secret ingredient” to create an extremely flavorful and satisfying dish. Tofu scramble is perfect for a protein-packed weekend breakfast or brunch, but also makes an excellent dinner!
This recipe is inspired by the breakfast egg white, spinach, feta cheese wraps sold at Starbucks, using a delicious egg-like tofu pattie wrapped up all neat and tidy along with creamy sun dried tomato cream cheese, roasted tomatoes, fresh spinach and some tangy baked almond feta. Each bite is packed with so much incredible flavor! Once you get these all wrapped up you can keep them in the fridge for a quick and tasty protein-packed breakfast or lunch.
