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.

    • Here is an article, albeit short, about Myocarditis and Celiac disease.  I have read before about a connection between the two and A-Fib is another one that can happen with undiagnosed Celiac. From one over-thinker to another......its the inflammation thing, along with maybe some genetic components to it.  I can't remember how long you have been gluten-free but it can take awhile for things to settle down, especially if your thyroid is wonky also.  I have Celiac and Hashi's so feel your pain, even though I have not had any cardiac involvement.  Some doctors really suck. I have a lifetime of bad with them so do not go that often, only when I have to and am leery about seeing any new ones. I am so done with that attitude of theirs. I think you need to find someone who has knowledge of Celiac and it's related conditions and who actually listens to the patient. That might be harder than finding a needle in a haystack but I wish you luck!

    • So my heart has been doing weird stuff post gluten challenge. Skips beats, arrhythmias, chest pain. It was getting a bit better then worse again in July.   My cardiologist has done 2 stress tests, halter monitor, and we have not caught anything other then harmless pvc's. But I KNOW this is not right for my heart and it has gone wacky out of sync and we never catch it on a damn test. All of my doctor's were connected out of a larger practice, so the GI, cardio, neuro, and primary care can all see the mountains of tests I had and think I am a nutcase the moment I walk through the door. I will admit that I informed the old GI about the DGP test being positive and I sent over some info on the test as they were basically using TTG and old gliadin tests, and they were receptive. But for the most part, I do not trust doctors. I was once told I was in false labor when I actually had 13 gallstones and an infection in my bile duct. I have more horror stories, as we all do. So, my protein and RBC were low in the hospital but all up to good levels now so it is not a vitamin deficiency. My heart has already skipped multiple beats today. The other day, it again went out of rhythm for just 20 seconds or so. I am not drinking coffee or alcohol because of the acidity, so it is not that. I was glutened on August 24th and probably once in July. Does anyone have weird heart issues that vanish eventually? If so, how long does it take? I am an over-thinker, which has its pros and cons. I know we are at an increased risk for CAD which is not really my concern right now. My gut is inflamed, my thyroid is inflamed and my adrenal gland was effected by all of this. I sort of wonder if an exposure to gluten causes some kind of myocarditis, an inflammation that would not be picked up a sonogram per se, and may eventually vanish with a gluten free diet. Has anyone ever had experience with myocarditis? I did a lot of reading on Roemheld syndrome, gastro-cardio syndrome, which is basically a set of cardio symptoms resulting from your gut. Praying it is just that! I just feel like now that I have a diagnosis, I need to rebuild a team of doctors that I feel have my back. This is a sucky disease that can have a lot of ill effects and I need a team I feel is intelligent, supportive and willing to research. I already have a new GI and a great Endocrinologist. I am seriously contemplating a new cardio and neuro as they both talk to me like I am a 12 year-old with "hysterical girl syndrome".
    • I was not officially diagnosed with narcolepsy when I was younger and still haven't.  However, even in my junior high and high school years and on through my college years staying awake was always a struggle for me.  maybe the gluten was a factor back in junior high and just didn't realize it.    There were times in church and other times I would just BAM fall asleep without warning.  Frustrating and somewhat embarrassing to say the least.  Now that I have been off gluten for close to a year now, the "feeling" of needing to sleep is becoming less and less.  Still have periods of sudden sleepiness, but not as often any more.
    • when they first came out, I read the ingredients on them, and they don't seem to contain malt.  But the company, at that time specifically posted on the website that they  are not gluten-free.  So I don't drink them.
