Cheap Breakfast Ideas?
0

7 posts in this topic

Just posting in the hope that anyone has cheap breakfast ideas. Obviously, prices and availability will vary be country and location.

 

gluten-free Mueslis and breakfast cereals (Freedom Foods, usually) cost me $11/kg and up, compared to say a wheat biscuit (Weet-bix) breakfast for $3.80/kg. Quinoa flakes are also $10/kg and rice flakes (yuk) come in at $7/kg

 

I have tried before a brown rice with honey and milk breakfast, and that's probably around $2.50/kg for the rice, but I would really appreciate some more ideas.

Are you in the UK?

Anyway.....you can eat anything you want for breakfast - last nights left- overs, eggs, hard boiled eggs are even quicker in the morning, make pancakes ahead, freeze and re- heat, yogurt, gluten-free sausages ( I cook a bunch, freeze and then microwave ), cheese microwaved on a corn tortilla ( add anything else you like, baked potato with cheese and ham, ), left- over pizza, fruits and nuts, etc

Rice pudding with fresh fruit my kids love it. Get the big sacks of rice from the Chinese stores they are cheap, use whatever milk you like.

You can make your own granolas meusli we do as our kids Yates change all the time. We always have dried fruit and nuts at home, we just occasionally buy the other bits and pieces. It's ever the same twice.

A staple muesli type we make, lightly crushed gluten-free honey chex, nuts, dried prunes apricots pineapple papaya chopped and we added shredded unsweetened oconut.

Lots of breakfast protein foods are gluten-free: eggs, bacon, ham, many sausages. Milk is gluten-free, as is butter and virtually all cheese. Peanut butter is almost certain to be gluten-free, but read the label to be sure.

Carbohydrates are more of a challenge, but fruits and fruit juices are inherently gluten-free, unless contaminated. Hash browns are usually gluten-free, but could be contaminated during frying.

None of these require you to pay a premium to buy a "gluten-free" version.

Can you have cheese?  My daughter likes a piece of cheese or cottage cheese and fruit.  She also often eats raw carrots for breakfast.  She just loves them!  Or apple slices and nut butter.  She can't have peanut butter but can have sunseed butter.

 

The Zucchini bread recipe in the recipe section of this website (not the forum) is great!  I make it without nuts and with an egg replacer.  I usually make it in the form of muffins and they do freeze well.  I have made other gluten-free muffins and pancakes and freeze those too.  Have made gluten-free bagels.  Daughter liked them but they are in no way like a wheat bagel.  I have also made a foccacia bread, leaving out the savory herbs that are normally in the recipe and subbing in a little cinnamon and sugar or artifical sweetener.  Cut it in strips after it comes out of the oven.  You can then top it with something like a fruit pie type filling or a little sweet glaze if you want.  Can also add nuts.

 

I like to eat polenta for breakfast.  I buy the tubes of precooked.  Slice, top with a little tomato sauce and microwave till warm.  I eat with some pumpkin seeds or nuts on the side for protein.  But if you can have cheese, cheese melted onto this is great!

 

I also like grits but am usually too rushed in the morning to want to bother to make them.  They are great with maple syrup and butter on them if you can eat that many carbs.  But you could probably get the same result with a drop of maple flavoring.  Oh...  Now I want some!  Saw grits at the store today but did not buy.  *Whips out grocery list and adds grits to it*  Also good with cheese melted in. 

 

You can make a crustless quiche with eggs, any kinds of vegetables that you like, meats, cheese, etc.  Can be eaten cold or hot.

 

You can make trail mix with assorted nuts and seeds, dried fruit, coconut.  Use more seeds than nuts to lower the price.  Unless you get a really good price on nuts!  And you can add gluten-free cold cereal to this to lessen the cost.

Polenta is a nice alternative to breakfast carbs, mix in a little proscuitto and serve on the side with cantaloupe.

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      It is true about hidden guten. I have seen news reports that even products claiming to be gluten-free often times contain traces of it. For example, there is gluten in several gluten-free probiotic brands. So, I have been considering not taking probiotics.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      If a food product contains wheat, it must be labeled by law. I have been gluten-free for 11 years and have found that this whole concept of hidden gluten (aside from cc) is really not quite true.  You have to learn how to read labels correctly to identify what is in the food you are eating.  If in any doubt, do not eat the product until further inquiry is made. Rashes happen for many different reasons but they do seem to occur more frequently in those with autoimmune or allergy problems.  Those would probably be the 2 main causes of them. It can be incredibly hard to figure out and doctors are not much better at helping.  This is why my 89 year old MIL is trying a gluten-free diet because she is having rash and itching problems that are driving her crazy. No help whatsoever from doctor-land.  They just keep feeding her prednisone and that is not a good choice for anyone, never mind an 89 year old.  It's a wonder any of us get the help we need!
    • Eating food cooked on a grill (eg, quesadillas, fish)
      I ordered mahi mahi and baked sweet potato fries off the special gluten free menu last night and had a head ache all day.  They said they cleaned before making my food but I assume it is difficult in a restaurant kitchen.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Hives can be caused by so many things but primarily, it's either allergy related or autoimmune related.  You can have autoimmune hives which can result from having one or more AI diseases.  I get hives but mine pop when it gets warm and wet......I am severely allergic to molds. They just about appear and disappear quickly, if the weather goes from wet to dry. I use Benadryl to keep them from getting too bad, when needed. I also use children's Benadryl because it works just as well as the adult formula but makes me less drowsy. You can be more susceptible to environmental allergies when you have Celiac.  Is this a problem for you and your sister? 
    • Gluten withdrawals/legs welling/bloating
      Welcome to then forum, Mona! No swelling for me but I can encourage you to read our Newbie 101 section under "Coping".  Learning how to be gluten free takes time.  Withdrawal affects some of us, but not all.  Remember this is an autoimmune disorder that is triggered by gluten (unlike MS or lupus where the trigger is unknown).  But when triggered the autoimmune response (aka "flare up") can last for days, weeks or months.  So, please give yourself time.  Try to rest and put up your feet after work.  Hopefully, others here will have good tips for your specific complaint -- swelling. Read through the forum.  Ask questions.  We are here to help.  Like you, my GI just gave me a list of gluten-free restaurants.  Really!   Take care!  You will get better!

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
