Tater tots for breakfast?! Yes, please.
That was my reaction when I read through the recipe for the Hearty Breakfast Bowl in Hearty Vegan Meals for Monster Appetites:
Tater tots are topped with scrambled tofu, bacon bits, and a cheesy gravy made from nutritional yeast and ground cashews. It really doesn't get much better than that. I'm a savory breakfast girl first and foremost, and this is the sort of day starter that makes me like getting up in the morning. I made the tofu and gravy on Sunday, so each morning this week, I'm heating the tots in the oven and 15 minutes later, breakfast is served.
I will admit that I felt a little guilty eating tots for a weekday breakfast, so I bought the Cascadian Farms organic Spud Puppies to make me feel a bit better about it.
Remember how I said I would continue juicing every morning after my 21-day Crazy Sexy Diet cleanse? Well, I have been ... until this week. Instead, I'm enjoying organic orange juice with my breakfast. I'll get back to green juicing next week, but I really needed an excuse to use this adorable orange juice mug that I ordered from Lynn at Scissors and Spice's Etsy shop:
Isn't that adorable? You can't really read it here, but the bottom of this four-ounce cup says "Orange Juice Is Good." And since I'm not much of a fruit eater, OJ is good for me. It's the only way I'll get my vitamin C. I'd much rather drink fruit than eat it.
