When you can't eat dairy finding a filling, fresh, and quick option for breakfast can be tough. Six years ago my go-to was a cup of regular yogurt or an English muffin with cream cheese. When I realized I was lactose intolerant it was a shock to my system and back then there were no tasty almond or coconut based options. Throw in additional issues with gluten and breakfast became the toughest meal of the day! 

These days things are a lot easier for a V/GF eater. Luckily I'm able to tolerate eggs but I don't always have the time to make them. I'm also a huge fan of smoothies but the extra step of a blender has always been a deterrent. During the week my go-to is a bowl of my favorite almond milk yogurt with this granola. I love using seasonal fruit and during the summer its been mango, figs, and lots of berries. For toppings I like to use hemp seeds, coconut flakes or butter, chia seeds, or cacao nibs. 

PS Luke suffers from very bad seasonal allergies. This year I purchased a local honey and added it to his breakfast. Call me crazy but I think it actually helped!
