3 Plant-Based Breakfast Recipes For Every Kind Of Morning

As we enter a new world of social distancing and increased handwashing, our lives are starting to shift a little. We’re cooking at home a little more, going out a little less, and focusing on all the ways we can boost our immune system and lower our stress levels.

Each of these plant-based breakfast recipes serves a different purpose as we navigate our new world. From make-ahead muffins to replace the usual coffee shop grab-and-go, to the simple smoothie to nourish the work-from-home crowd, and the drool-worthy pancakes — complete with the immune-boosting powers of cinnamon and ginger — that could replace your big group brunch.

So stay calm, wash your hands, and enjoy getting creative in the kitchen, while benefiting from the nourishing nutrition of plant-based goodness.
