Breakfast Food/breads Question

9 posts in this topic

I'm awaiting biopsy but am testing gluten free foods.  I tried Vans frozen waffles and blehhh did not like, bought some nature's path waffles and those were much better to me, alot closer to eggos.  Any other brands out there?  I did not see any others in Whole Foods or Trader Joe's.  I also cannot find gluten free pancakes at either store at all though I do know they exist as I have seen the Van's ones advertised online though both stores only have the gluten ones.  I asked the girl next to me who was grabbing some of the Van's gluten free waffles and she said generally if you find the pancakes take a photo because you don't see them too often.  As far as bread goes I saw Whole Foods keeps em all frozen yet Trader Joe's does not for some reason?  I'm assuming its probably not a good idea to buy the non frozen bread as far as it lasting long?

Unless you live in the city where the gluten-free bread is made, the bread is frozen to ship. Some stores thaw it out and some leave it frozen. My WF thaws a few at a time. I usually ask for one from the freezer in back. If its thawed, I just put all or most of it in my freezer.

Many people like the Pamela's pancake and baking mix. You could make a bunch and freeze some. Some people even use them to make Pb & j sandwiches.

Schar bread is not frozen. We really like the baguette. You cook it about five minutes.

Unless you are in need of a door stop or sumphin'. :wacko:

 

Oh and I must add.... I love Van's Waffles and eat them every morning toasted with Peanut Butter (melted on the hot waffle) and Orange Marmalade.  WELL, almost every morning.  I never ate EGGO's, my kids did (before my dx) The cool thing on this diet, is you discover new priorities. ;)

If you find Krusteaz waffles they're pretty good. I wouldn't buy frozen pancakes since they're so easy to make. Either from scratch or the mixes are generally pretty decent too. I can't recommend Bisquick for breakfast foods, but it is awesome for impossible pies. Other than that though I haven't run into a pancake/waffle mix I haven't liked. By far though, my favorite everything in a box is Hodgson Mill.

 

You'll find that everyone likes a different everything best. Just the same as the gluten world. You'll just have to keep trying them all and decide for yourself. You'll also quickly realize that most of the prepackaged stuff is expensive, and in comparison to what you can make yourself, not good at all. Before you know it you'll have so many kinds of flour in your freezer you won't have room for waffles. :lol:

I buy the unfrozen Udi's from Trader Joes all the time. I put it in the freezer as soon as I get home and it's fine.

Everyone likes something different, but honestly, make your own.  Make a big batch of pancakes and freeze them yourself.  Way tastier. :)

I bought unfrozen Udis at Whole Foods and it was moldy by the next day.

My TJ's has gluten-free frozen waffles right by all the regular ones, so they definitely make them. Maybe if you talk to the manager then they could order some for the store?

 

I'm guessing, because you didn't list it, that you don't have Wegmans (mostly in the north east) but if you ever go where there is one, their gluten free frozen waffles are better than the normal ones and you get more per box. I would buy them even before I got my celiac diagnosis.

Another idea is to make banana bread.  It is great as French Toast, too.  I slice mine thickly, place wax paper between slices and freeze.  Easy peasy.  Or how about making muffins or cupcakes?  Very simple to make gluten free.  Eggs Benedict is one of my favourite things for breakfasts/lunches.  Just buy English muffins or use bread (homemade is best) or even bagels.  Toast 'em first and Bob's your uncle!  :D

    • healthy bread recipe?
      Ok thank you for the input! I am happy to hear what you think about her biopsy. Her GI is actually getting a second opinion from the celiac specialist. Our appointment is in a week. I have always thought she had celiac too. I asked them to do a biopsy years ago and they did but it was normal. She has more neurological symptoms than GI. She has headache and POTS. But she was reacting to all kinds of foods all of the sudden a few months ago. The low histamine diet really helped and she tolerates more foods now. I make almost everything from scratch, there is no gluten anywhere in the house and I don't use gums because she and I react to them. Breakfast is the hardest. Eggs are high histamine, she can't have oats, can't have fermented foods (yogurt), Breakfast is a nightmare. Many fruits and veggies are high histamine. She eats the ones she can tolerate. That's why I was asking about breads. What do you eat for breakfast? Are flax seeds safe or are they like oats? I can't find any flax seeds that say certified gluten free.
    • Diagnosis and Test Results
      I have been struggling with  symptoms for over a year and had lots of other testing done by my GI.  She did the celiac disease blood test a few weeks ago.  It came back positive for the two genetic markers but my antibodies were negative.  I received the results by phone from the (stupid) nurse who only relayed to me that "your tests showed that you are positive for Celiacs Disease.  you need to go on a gluten free diet and follow up in a few months".  I was so surprised by what she said it didn't even occur to me to call the doctor directly so I took it upon myself to research the disease and going on a strict  gluten free diet.  The first two weeks were horrible!  EVERYTHING I ate gave me diarrhea.  After two weeks, I started to feel better but anytime I inadvertently ate gluten by accident or was cross contaminated, I had horrible diarrhea again.  I spoke with my GI doctor today (I work at the hospital where she works) and she explained the blood results better to me.  (I still haven't expressed my anger about the nurse to her yet...but I will!) It doesn't make sense to me that I have the gene, have been experiencing IMO full blown symptoms (significant weight loss, malnourished, diarrhea, migraines, increased depression/anxiety, etc) but my antibody test was negative.  Could it be lab error?  I asked about an endoscopy and she said we could do it but it still may not confirm the disease.  I've also researched IBS and I don't seem to match up with those symptoms. Part of me wants to know if I have a gluten intolerance or the actual disease.  Either way I'll continue to follow the gluten-free diet but I think it's important to know if I have an autoimmune disease correct?  Or does it? Just looking for some guidance...
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Absolutely, absolutely, absolutely!!!!!!! Your doctor seems to think all her villi have to be completely wiped out for her to be celiac. Like cyclinglady says.... get the records & get a second opinion. BTW, I happen to agree with all the rest she said too but I just wanted to emphasize the second opinion part.  
    • Nothing left to eat
      I usually have sautéed yellow peppers, kale (or spinach) mushrooms as a base.  Then throw in some leftovers like baked sweet potato, or chicken chunks, add an egg and call it a breakfast!
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Lay's regular chips are gluten free.  You might have reacted to the super greasy chips or one of the other ingredients in them.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
