School back in session means families are returning to the breakfast table. Or are they? The most essential meal of the day is also one of the most skipped meals of the day.

It’s time to change… Let’s take back breakfast. Did you know… According to the World Health Organization, breakfast-skipping has been linked to higher levels of smoking, alcohol and drug use, obesity and sedentary lifestyles. Even as vegans, we tend to reach for junk to compensate for missing fuel throughout the day. So I recommend breakfast options to give your body energy and your brain a boost.  If you don’t have time to cook, your blender is your best friend. I love a hearty breakfast smoothie with banana, strawberry, peanut butter, chia seeds and kale. Or I love a hot cereal with quinoa and oatmeal steamed in coconut milk and topped with blueberries.

Bottom line: don’t skip brekkie!
