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.

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.

    • This salad of roasted beets, carrots and apples is perfect for fall. View the full article
    • I have to tell you that, about 3 years ago, I went to the International Celiac Disease Symposium.  The coffee cross-reactive myth was discussed as we were all consuming vast quantities of Starbucks coffee provided by the Sheraton.  Needless to say, it was good for a laugh.    
    • Yeah, I looked for real scientific studies on gluten cross activity and couldn't find any. I did read something about barely being found in instant coffee--so who knows.
    • Gluten Cross-reactive foods is some sort of odd internet myth.  It started with a company that wanted to sell bogus medical tests.  They have even admitted that the coffee thing isn't true - they used gluten contaminated instant coffee.  However, you have to look at the small print in a lot of nonsense in a large binder of stuff to find that fact.  I did it with one of their company reps.. anyway....   If coffee bothers you, it may just be that it is hard on your system.  Maybe you can get it back after some healing.  And it doesn't sound like you had much protein that week.   edit - just looked at the ingredients- that isn't just coffee - who knows what part of it bothered you?  ingredients on GMO Dark Roast Coffee, Chlorogenic Acid, Garcinia Cambogia 95%,Phaseolamin, Cassiolamine Green Tea 100:1 Extract, Ginseng 100:1 Extract, L-Carnitine with Chromium.
    • Thanks for pointing that out. I just learned about things that are cross reactive with gluten--that have a similar protein structure and the body reacts as if it is a gluten protein: the list of cross reactors includes: Eggs, coffee most other grains corn, potato, rice, yeast, chocolate coffee, corn, butter soy, eggplant, bell pepper and chili pepper and tomatoes. Son of a !!!! This explains a lot. I would be faithfully gluten-free and still have DH flare ups when I certain things. So I just ate sprouted rice with beans, fruit and oolong tea--and I was fine. Then last week I tried this weight loss coffee called SlimRoast which worked UNBELIVABLE (LOST 3 POUNDS IN 2 DAYS) I was eating potato soup with lots of chili paste and soon I noticed I was depressed, I couldn't focus and began to feel that crawling flesh thing I get when I know I have been glutened.  I did more research on how I could love my body and read about glutamine: "Glutamine is also a critical part of our digestive system. It is the primary nutrient for the cells of the intestinal lining where it helps regulate cellular reproduction. Through this mechanism, glutamine helps prevent and rebuild a leaky gut which is common in people with inflammatory and auto-immune conditions. For this reason glutamine supplementation has been shown to be very effective in individuals with ulcerative colitis, CELIAC DISEASE, Crohn's disease, & irritable bowel syndrome." So now have removed everything but the sprouted rice, back on fruit and beans and have added those things that are high in glutamine. Since I eat plant based I can't get glutamine from meat so lots of raw spinach beets parsley cabbage celery kale brussel sprouts and especially red cabbage --in salads and smoothies. So hopefully I am on the mend--miss my weight loss coffee but its not worth getting sick over.
