Vegan Staples for the Perfect Weekend Breakfast blog title

I love breakfast!  I really do consider it to be the most important meal of the day.  When it came to going vegan, it was also one of the trickiest meals to make substitutions for.  Breakfast is usually jam packed with dairy and meats, such as eggs, milk, cream cheese, butter, bacon, and sausage.  Recently, I was finally able to find vegan substitutions for all my favorite breakfast staples that I gave up when I became a vegan last year 💗 You can read all about that in my post about Veganuary!  Keep reading to learn all about the vegan breakfast staples I am keeping on hand for the perfect weekend breakfast!

Vegan Parmesan Recipe on National Spaghetti Day blog title

Happy National Spaghetti Day!!!

Hands down I am definitely more of a savory eater...I do like sweets sometimes, but I am absolutely more drawn to flavorful and comforting dishes.  My all-time favorite has to be spaghetti 🍝 This was also very convenient when I transitioned to vegan, because most store bought dry pasta and spaghetti sauces are vegan.  P.S. I am celebrating my 1st Veganniversary this month 😉

Going vegan wasn't difficult for me, but I will say the hardest thing to give up was dairy.  I was already a vegetarian, so dairy was really my final hurdle.  I made it a mission to find my favorite substitutes for all of my regular of them being Parmesan cheese 🧀  I took to Pinterest and found a few decent recipes and over time have developed my own version of vegan Parmesan cheese that I come back to time and time again.  It's super duper easy and literally takes two minutes.  Keep reading to get my secret vegan parmesan cheese recipe to celebrate National Spaghetti Day!
