Hi.

I learn in a dorm not close to my house.

I have gluten-free breads and such in the freezer and not a lot other than that.

I have a problem with finding what to eat for breakfast and dinner. I have about 20-30 min. for each meal, which means I don't have a lot of time to prepare something.

Do you have and ideas what I can prepare with minimal ingredients (I can buy some) and minimal preparation?

I also have a toaster.

Thanks!

A couple of ideas:

- Almond, cashew or sunflower butter on that gluten-free toast. Add a banana or apple.

- Chia porridge: mash a banana, add 2 TBS chia seed and 1 cup of your milk of choice (cashew, almond or hemp are all good if you cannot tolerate dairy! Unsweetened is best) Make this in larger batches so it can sit and thicken overnight in the fridge. Top with nuts or shredded coconut or fruit.

- If you can find access to a stove, make a batch of hardboiled eggs. Do this on the weekend and make enough to last the week. You could also cook up a batch of bfast sausage patties for reheating.

Eggs and bacon are my favourites. You could experiment with microwaving them - just don't nuke the egg in the shell before cracking it unless you want a mess.  LOL

Microwaved eggs work best scrambled. I water them down a little and beat the heck out of them, then I put a lot of cheese in thebowl with them. They take a while to cook. Two minutes, then open the micro and stir them up. Then another two minutes and stir. Then maybe another two minutes. Of course I'm using my tiny, low-powered micro at work. If yours has more power it won't take as long, but it's still a good idea to stir them. Also, you have to eat them while they're hot or they get rubbery.

 

Bacon is great in the microwave. Put it between several layers of paper towel.

 

Good old PBJ sandwiches are quick. And of course there are gluten-free cereals for breakfast. Add some fruit and a slice of cheese on the side. I eat a Lara bar for breakfast every morning. I get the "cashew cookie" flavor and it is quite filling.

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
