Being vegan is hot. From Beyoncé and Jay-Z to wellness gurus like Alicia Silverstone and Whole Foods CO-CEO John Mackey to CE contributor Lauren Toyota, seems like everyone is going vegan. But, what if you could reap the benefits of a plant-based diet without giving up fish tacos and cheese pizza? You can, according to Celebrity fitness trainer and bestselling author of over 20 books, Jorge Cruise. He sings the praises of being "vegan until lunch" in his new book Tiny and Full.

Here at Clean Eating, we've long espoused the benefits of eating a plant-based diet and "going meatless" one to two times a week. Eating more plants will up your intake of valuable antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, giving you more energy, glowing skin and helping to to fight disease. In his book, Cruise suggests supplementing veggie and fruit smoothies with gluten-free, hypoallergenic pea protein powder to prevent protein-deficiency. We recommend Swanson, a clean choice.

According to Cruise, these 5 vegan breakfast should give you more energy and help you to feel full till lunch – when you're allowed to have some cheese.
