Calling all vegans or any #fitnessfanatic looking to eat clean and give vegan eggs a shot. Regardless if abstaining from meat and dairy is an ethical or purely health decision, we can all benefit from vegan recipes from time to time.
Vegan Eggs Are Harder To Shop For
If you are wondering about how to make vegan eggs, then look no further because the recipe is simple to follow. However, getting a hold of vegan eggs in the first place can be tricky, as you might need to order them online. Make note that not all Whole Foods stores carry vegan eggs.
While I am not a vegan, I go meatless on occasion just to cleanse my body. A BBC article suggests a more and more people are realizing the benefits of being a part-time vegan:
“But a growing trend for giving up all animal products doesn’t involve going vegan forever. Nor does it even require being morally opposed to eating meat.”
The Flexitarian Fad Is On The Rise
The article continued to tout that rapper Jay-Z and Beyoncé went on a 22-day vegan diet to achieve a “spiritual and physical cleanse.” In fact, there is now a new term for part-time vegans or even part-time vegetarians: flexitarian. Yep, it now has its own name. According to The Spruce, a flexitarian is not a full-fledged vegetarian, at least not all the time:
“Flexitarian is used to describe a diet or a person who eats a ‘mostly’ vegetarian diet, occasionally including meat.”
Vegan Egg Breakfast Recipe
- Follow Your Heart Vegan Eggs (2 scoops = 2 eggs)
- Water (1 cup for every 2 scoops of vegan egg powder)
- Gluten-Free Toast (Side dish)
- Vegan Bacon (Side dish)
- Mix and scramble with either vegetable oil or vegan butter.
- Pan cook vegan bacon as you would regular bacon.
- Note: Vegan eggs take longer to cook than regular eggs. If the eggs are runny, just add more vegan egg powder.
How Do Vegan Eggs Taste?
So, I suppose I am more of a flexitarian, and I recently decided to make vegan eggs for the first time. The entire meal included 2 slices of gluten-free toast and 2 pieces of vegan bacon. I admit the eggs didn’t taste like real eggs, but with a little ketchup, they came close.
