Quick Breakfast Ideas, Out Of The House?
0

5 posts in this topic

Hi - I've been doing very well on my gluten free diet since my dx in early March.  

 

The only thing I haven't quite figured out are more breakfast ideas.  I used to grab a quick egg/turkey bacon on a bagel or english muffin in the morning at the local deli.  It's not really possible for me to eat at home before getting the kids ready for school and out the door, and I really enjoy having breakfast and coffee at my desk to start the day.

 

I've been getting the egg/quinoa/avocado pots at Pret A Manger, a single serving of Rice Chex, or fruit, but it's getting kind of old.  The guy at one of my delis is very good about cleaning the grill first, etc., but it always feels risky to me to get eggs out, and besides, I really miss the sandwich part.

 

I have access to a microwave and a fridge.

 

Can anyone suggest any good, quick ideas?

I hate to break it to you, but breakfast (especially a fast one) is the toughest meal of the day, IMO.

I suggest a morning of preassembling your own bagel/egg sandwiches and freeze them - and take one to work and nuke it. I also suggest boiling a few eggs, a few prepacked containers of salsa or guac...get the idea? Prep ahead.

You could also make a really nice, homemade oatmeal and then nuke it at work. Oatmeal stands up well to being reheated. And you can top it with all sorts of delicious options.

Smoothies take a few mins if you've a bullet type blender... a banana, handful of frozen berries plus any other fruit/veg you fancy mixed with either flavoured water, almond milk etc and I sometimes add protein powder.

Or, Nairns gluten free biscuit breaks oats & fruit or any other gluten-free bars or you can make your own granola bars.

Ohhhh my daughter just gave me this wonderful breakfast bar recipe 

 

 


  • Homemade Cliff Bars (no bake!)
  • There is plenty of room for variation here, so let your mind and tastebuds run wild. I have a few variation ideas to get you started. And yes, you can definitely double this recipe and press into a 13×9-inch pan insteads of an 8-inch pan.
  • 1 and ¼ cups crisp rice cereal (e.g., I like Erwhon Crisp Brown, but Rice Krispies are fine)
  • 1 cup uncooked quick-cooking oats
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed (flaxseed meal)1/4 cup finely chopped dried fruit (e.g., raisins, dried cranberries, dried cherries, etc.)
  • ¼ cup finely chopped nuts or seeds (pepitas are great)
  • ⅓ cup honey, maple syrup or brown rice syrup
  • ½ cup nut or seed butter of your choice (e.g., peanut butter, almond butter, sunflower seed butter)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Optional: ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
 

 

Instructions
  1. Combine the rice cereal, oats, flaxseed meal, dried fruit, and nuts in a large bowl.
  2. Combine the syrup and nut butter in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring until melted and well-blended (alternatively microwave in small microwave-safe bowl 30-60 seconds until melted). Stir in vanilla until blended.
  3. Pour nut butter mixture over cereal mixture, stirring until coated (use a wooden spoon at first, then get your hands in it. It will be sticky, but this way you can really coat everything. Just scrape off your hands when you’re done).
  4. Press mixture firmly into an 8-inch square pan (sprayed with nonstick cooking spray) using a large square of wax paper (really tamp it down).
  5. Cool in pan on a wire rack, then chill at least 30 minutes to help it set.
  6. Cut into 12 bars. (Wrap bars tightly in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator).
  7.

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
