6+ Plant-Based Probiotic Breakfasts

Nobody wants to eat sauerkraut for breakfast. For many of us busy individuals, it can be hard to get probiotics throughout the day when we’re on-the-go. Because of this, breakfast is a great time to get your daily boost of probiotics. There are plenty of quick, creative foods that can be made in the morning. Scroll down for examples!

 

What Are Probiotics?

Probiotics are living microorganisms (usually bacteria, but some yeasts can also be probiotics). Consuming them benefits your gut flora, which performs many bodily functions including manufacturing vitamins such as some B vitamins and Vitamin K. It turns fibers into short-chain fats. 


Aside from these important functions, there has been plenty of evidence linking an unbalanced gut flora to numerous diseases including obesity, depression, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, and others. This is why it’s important to keep your gut flora in balance by eating probiotic-dense foods. 

 

Smoothies + Protein Shakes

Try starting the morning with a nutritious smoothie or protein shake. These are great because you can always make something different if you don’t want to drink the same smoothies every day. To get your probiotic fix, you can add yogurt into your smoothie (this also helps thicken it up). Add some fruit, veggies, superfood protein powder, milk, and anything else you enjoy in smoothies. 

 

Yogurt Bowl

One of the best probiotic breakfast sources is plant-based yogurt with toppings. Add fruits, granola, and a touch of sweetener for a delicious, probiotic-filled breakfast. Yogurt is also a great, inexpensive on-the-go snack if you need to get a healthy snack. You can find coconut yogurt, almond yogurt, and others. 

 

Smoothie Bowl

This is essentially the same as a smoothie, but instead, you put it into a bowl and cover it with toppings. An acai bowl is one example of a smoothie bowl, but you can create one with any smoothie recipe. Add in a little yogurt for probiotics while blending your smoothie. Since you will be adding toppings and eating it with a spoon, you’ll want to make the smoothie as thick as possible. 

A few topping examples include bananas, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, granola, hemp seeds, chia seeds, sweetener, and others.

 

Avocado Toast 

Not only is avocado toast incredibly easy to make, but it’s also delicious. Try adding some fermented vegetables on top of your toast for a flavorful probiotic boost! 

 

Kombucha

Try to switch out your morning glass of orange juice for a delicious glass of kombucha! You can easily find orange or tangerine flavors so you barely notice the difference. This is also a great source of probiotics that you can take on-the-go. 

 

Tempeh 

Tempeh is naturally high in probiotics, and there is plenty of inexpensive tempeh in grocery stores. For breakfast, tempeh bacon is delicious. Stack up your plate with some waffles, greens, and tempeh bacon for a nutrient-dense breakfast. You can marinate plain tempeh in a smoky bacon sauce, or buy a package of store-bought tempeh bacon. 

Tempeh Bacon Sauce:

  • Tamari 
  • Olive oil
  • Maple syrup
  • Paprika
  • Liquid smoke
  • Cumin
  • Salt & pepper

 

Probiotic Vitamins

If you’re running late, you don’t have to miss out on your morning probiotic. A supplement is a great way to get your probiotics.

 

Bottom Line

Overall, breakfast is the perfect time to get your daily dose of probiotics. There are plenty of delicious recipes you can create!
