Many new folk on the vegan diet find it difficult to think of tasty and easy foods to prepare. Oftentimes, many folk just do not have the time or energy to search for easy, healthy vegan recipes.

However, to all you vegans out there — be aware that there are many tasty, healthy and easy vegan breakfasts that you can prepare.
Here are a few very easy vegan recipes and snacks to help you choose smart, energy giving, vegan-friendly food choices for your next meal.
Tofu Stir Fry –Tofu is a great source of soy protein, and you can use it in almost every recipe that calls for meat or eggs. A very good lunch or dinner meal should consists of cubing the firm tofu, fry with vegetable oil and raw soy sauce, and add all the organic veggies of your choice: carrots, eggplant, zucchini, cabbage, bean sprouts, pea pods, and onions. Serve over organically grown rice or brown rice and you have a super healthy, hearty meal to fill up even the hungriest appetite!
Cool Cold Cereals — Vegan Cereal — The supermarkets and health food stores offer a wide range of vegan cereals nowadays, so you should try as many as you can and find your favorites! Enjoy your cereal with rice or soy milk and a dollop of yogurt. To make your bowl of cereal healthier, more sustaining and more delicious, add your choice of pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, linseeds, chia seeds, nuts, goji berries, raisins, sultanas or chopped dates! This will turn an ordinary bowl of cereal into a sustaining, enrgy boosting, healthy (and still easy!) vegan breakfast!
Try a bowl of cheerios, 1 cup soy milk, and a handful of fresh strawberries or raspberries. Craving something sweet? Cocoa beans are organic so why not have a bowl of cocoa puffs or cocoa krispies with 1 cup vanilla soy milk?
Vegan Smoothie — This is another easy and healthy vegan breakfast drink, however, you do need a blender.
For a chocolate banana smoothie, blend together 1 Cup rice/soy milk, 1 Tbsp. cacao powder, 1 very ripe banana, 2–3 Tbsp. soy yogurt, a drizzle of agave nectar and a pinch of sea salt. Add more milk if the smoothie is too thick for your liking.
For a berry smoothie, blend together 1 Cup rice/soy milk, 3–4 Tbsp. soy yogurt, ½ Cup frozen or fresh berries, a pinch of sea salt, and some ice-cubes.
For an Acai Smoothie you can also use blueberries if the Acai is not available. Blend together these, fresh or frozen, along with all the other fruit you want (pineapples, mangoes, bananas, strawberries, etc). Add some ice or soy sorbet and blend some more. Top it with some granola and fruit slices for a super cool energy boost!
To create your own vegan smoothie, blend together your choice of the following: soy/rice/coconut milk, soy/coconut yogurt, dates, raisins, sultanas, goji berries, crushed nuts, chia seeds, flaxseeds, linseeds, maple syrup, agave nectar, sea salt, peanut butter, bananas, grated vegan chocolate, cacao powder, molasses, berries, and some ice-cubes.
Kosmic Curried Kale — Everyone should eat more greens in their diet anyway, so this recipe is vegan-friendly and also all raw for those super health food fanatics. De-stem and wash the curly kale, put it in a bowl with a shredded carrot, then blend together 1 part Nama Shoyu (raw soy sauce), 1 part lemon juice, 1 part olive oil, 2 cloves garlic, and adds cumin and coriander for the dressing. Super simple and totally organic!
