On the first official day of Vida Vegan Con (Saturday), we were treated to probably the most epic vegan breakfast buffet ever created.
I apologize for all my terrible photos, but the lighting in there was not favorable, and I was just trying to get out of everyone’s way as quickly as possible!
There was fresh fruit galore (even more than you see above) and big bowls of raw chia pudding, plus a variety of flavors of SoDelicious coconut milk yogurt, including the new Greek-style ones that aren’t even on store shelves yet!
There were bagels with peanut butter and the Earth Balance coconut spread I reviewed last week.
Matt and I are both fiends for breakfast potatoes, and these were fantastic.
The tofu scramble was loaded with spinach and mushrooms.
The pancakes were gluten-free, and served with maple syrup.
The gluten-free biscuits and white-bean-based gravy were a highlight for me.
The baked apple cobbler was just icing on the cake. Wowyumwow, so good.
There was also a coffee bar, with all the SoDelicious coconut milks and creamers and Earth Balance soymilks you could ever want.
When it came to loading up my plate, suffice it to say I didn’t hold back. This was not a time for restraint, people!
Our fearless leaders Janessa, Jess, and Michele gave a quick good-morning speech…
…before all 300-or-so of us bloggers went on to attend a day full of classes and panels.
There’s still lots more to come!
