What do most of you do for breakfast? I used to eat bagels or cereal :rolleyes:

There are some gluten-free cold breakfast cereals, I generally buy Nature's Path.

Other ideas include fruit, eggs, yogurt, Kinnikinnic english muffins (don't taste a bit like english muffins, but not bad toasted), or maybe a LaraBar if I'm in a rush.

I like fruit for breakfast but sometimes just toast up a Kinnikinnick bagel or Vans waffles. Eggs are always fast and yummie.

i like to have gluten free granola (i like Enjoy Life brand) either w/ yogurt or milk. It takes less than a minute to prepare and u can even put it in a plastic cup and eat on the go w/ a spoon. I mix it up- sometimes skim milk, sometimes soy, and sometimes plain yogurt w/ a little honey (plain yogurt doesnt taste good to me otherwise, but i havent found a replacement for my dannon vanilla yogurt yet).

if you have some time u could slice a banana into it or put in some berries

i also like to make gluten-free frozen waffles- i sometimes put peanut butter and sliced banana on them and they are pretty filling

In a rush:

peanut butter and apple sauce/banana sandwiches (gluten-free bread of course)

instant mashed potatoes

corn bread/muffins (made beforehand)

leftover dinners

If you have a bit more time, eggs are tasty. I used to make a large biscuit, and toss in some fresh onion with the eggs until they got translucent and glossy. Then split open the biscuit, spread on margarine, and put in the eggs and onions. That always hit the spot. You can also put in sprouts, cheese, tomato, etc. I'd sometimes like putting onion right into the biscuit dough.

Cream of rice with fruit should be safe, and the microwave would make it even faster. Heck, a large bowl of rice with margarine and a slice of cheese - Yum!

Kinnikinnick makes bagels that are good. I don't like their version of cinnamon raisin anything. We eat the lifestream wildberry waffles every day. I like them with pb. Kinnikinnick also makes good donuts. Very filling. Cake like, not light and airy. Fill you till you're sick. :lol: We slap extra frosting on them. Pillsbury makes gluten free chocolate frosting. Also, eggs and bacon on a Kinnikinnick english muffin. Those muffins aren't my favorite, but they're ok if you add enough butter, salt & pepper...ketchup, cheese... And toast them first, of course. Chebe is great if you roll it flat, put in scrambled eggs, diced ham and onions and turn it into a "hot pocket." My kids love those.

I make up batches of 1-2-3 Gluten Free's Pancake Mix and freeze the pancakes individually in sandwich bags and then in a big freezer bag all together... I can pull out one or two at a time and heat it up in the microwave, fill it with lunchmeat or fruit spread or eggs and cheese... I also like Kinnikinick sesame bagels toasted with cream cheese, Larabars, Nature's Path Mesa Sunrise Cereal with honey and milk in a bowl... Quaker instant grits with butter and salt and pepper or cheese... Pear Salad (diced pears with Helleman's Real Mayo and shredded cheese), Cheese Toast on Kinnikinick bread, bananas and a Glutino Cereal bar...

I either have a banana and some Whole Foods gluten-free Bakeshop cinnamon raisin bread toasted, or Cream of Rice w/ pure maple syrup, raisins and walnuts. Sometimes, just a banana and o.j.

I like Quinoa Flakes by Ancient Harvest. They are quick in the microwave, or you can just pour boiling water over them and they are ready in about a minute. I add raisins, sugar-free syrup, dried fruit, brown sugar -- whatever strikes me that day. They are a "super food" and so are very nutritious, and filling. Then there's fruit, of course. Toasted gluten-free bread with PB or butter or whatever. Gluten-free pancakes or waffles. Envirokids gluten-free cereals are enjoyed by my 5 year old (Panda Puffs - he would eat them all day if allowed). Eggs, bacon, sausage.... There's a whole lot out there -- and some of it is actually good. :P

Health Valley makes Corn Crunch-Ums and Rice Crunch-Ums cereal. They taste like Chex. I can buy this at my local health food store.

    • I found when I went gluten free I started eating more dairy and that gave me worse stomach aches and bloating than the gluten did. So now I have to avoid gluten and dairy.  Maybe you have a similar problem with something you are eating.  I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Hi! I received my "official" celiac diagnosis last week. I had an endoscopy last month that was originally looking for ulcers and h. pylori, but they did some biopsies of my duodenum since they were in the neighborhood and the biopsy came back "consistent with Celiac's disease" and later. They urged me to get my blood checked and follow up with my primary doctor. My blood work came back negative, but my doctor was confident it's Celiac so told me to stay away from gluten. I've been completely gluten free (or to the best of my knowledge) for 2 weeks now, and my results are mixed. At first, I felt great! My stomach was no longer CRAZY bloated once I stopped eating pasta and bread, my acne started healing, and the red rash on the back of my arms started to fade. That was the first few days. Lately, though, my acne is once again flaring up and I've been SO EXHAUSTED. I feel so tired all the time. Even now I have fatigue in my head, limbs, and I could hardly walk or move my body earlier today. I'm overweight and I like to go to the gym, but what used to be an easy workout for me is kicking my ass! I used to go to the gym and tear it up: HIIT on the treadmill followed by 40 minutes of heavy weight lifting. Now I can hardly finish 3 reps in my first set without feeling like a nap. I can't run anymore because my body feels clumsy and heavy. Also, I'm still bloated. I don't suffer from painful, acute bloating, but I struggle to pass gas and I look like I have pregnant belly. I think I'm also retaining water all over my body, and I'm not sure if that's normal? For whatever reason, I have this belief that water is mainly retained in the core and not arms, legs, and face. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you have to say/what you've experienced. Is this typical to first going gluten free?
    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
