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.

    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      Looks like you got some good info from previous posters.   I don't understand why you and your doctor think that dairy contains gluten?  Lactose is a sugar not a protein like gluten.  I think you have some other issues.  
    • Question on posting
      I made an informative video for Celiac Awareness Month that demonstrates how small 20ppm is. Am I allowed to post a vimeo link? Thanks!
    • Celiac Awareness on NBC Nightly News
      http://www.nbcnews.com/nightly-news/video/celiac-disease-affecting-millions-of-americans-often-goes-undiagnosed-692131907739   This was on last Tuesday. So happy that a popular national news program is spreading good information!
    • The US Preventative Services Task Force needs our help - tell them why Celiac screening is important!
      I am so angry. I am all about universal screening for Celiac Disease. It is a tricky disease to diagnose. Your only symptoms may be joint pain, depression, or weak nails, which people will try to cure with medication or a good manicure. With roughly 80% of the Celiac population remaining undiagnosed, universal screening could save thousands of lives. This article popped up in my twitter feed regarding US physicians who are unsure whether universal screening would provide “health benefits” for those who exhibit no symptoms (http://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-celiac-screening-idUSKCN0XU2G6?utm_content=buffer3ed50&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer) First of all, no symptom is a symptom! There is something called “Silent Celiac Disease”, and I personally know several people who have it. They experience no outward symptoms caused by gluten consumption, but their insides are being torn apart. If they eat gluten, they may not feel it, but they are highly at risk for long term complications such as cancer, miscarriages, and osteoporosis, just to name a few. Also, let’s consider the non-GI related symptoms of Celiac. Doctors, how many times does someone walk into your office and say, “Gee, Doc, could you test me for Celiac Disease? I have (insert one of the following)”: asthma bladder infections dental problems dandruff high blood pressure headaches blurred vision leg cramps back pain pale skin brittle nails acne bad bread mood swings ADD Anxiety Depression a short temper night terrors panic attacks irrational anger sinus pressure Those are just a few of the symptoms that people don’t think to associate with Celiac Disease, and I’m sure that you, Mr. Doctor, will not test someone with Celiac Disease if they have dandruff. This is why so many people are undiagnosed! People do not recognize the symptoms and doctors won’t think to give them a blood test. This is why I always say – You cannot know that you do not have Celiac Disease until you get tested. “One concern with widespread screening is that biopsies aren’t risk-free and may confirm cases of celiac disease that weren’t causing problems for patients and didn’t necessarily require treatment, Krist noted.” WHAT?????? First of all, most Celiac screening starts with a gene test or a blood test. That aside, ALL confirmed cases of Celiac Disease require treatment!! Untreated Celiac Disease can cause many problems in the future. “Guidelines for gastroenterologists recommend celiac screening for people with a close relative with celiac and for diabetics who are at increased risk for the disease, Murray said by email.” I was the first person in my family to be diagnosed. 80% of Celiacs don’t know they have it. I would have never been diagnosed if my gastroenterologist said, “Well you don’t have diabetes and no one in your family has it….” No one in my family had heard about Celiac Disease, let alone had been tested for it. And we have all of the tradition GI symptoms. This is not a rare disease. About 1% of the population has Celiac Disease. Take a look at your facebook friends list – have 500 friends? Odds are that you know four or five friends with Celiac. MAYBE one of them will be diagnosed. Maybe. The others will be suffering in silence. “The USPSTF, a government-backed independent organization that reviews medical evidence, issues recommendations that are closely watched by doctors and insurers. This is the first time the USPSTF has weighed in on screening for celiac disease, and the task force will accept public comments until May 30 before releasing final guidelines.” This brought me to the USPSTF website. In their draft, here is what is listed as “Potential Harms” of screening in asymptomatic populations. I’ve included my response: False positive – there are rarely false positives Unnecessary serologic tests and biopsies – umm…only do a biopsy if you have a positive blood test. And what’s so bad about a blood test? Anxiety of complications from testing – I had much more anxiety in my pre-Celiac days, not knowing if I would poop my pants at work. “Some patients with positive serology who do not undergo histologic confirmation may embark on efforts to avoid dietary gluten, which can increase costs and burdens and may result in decreased quality of life” “– I’m glad that you think my life is so terrible. “Limited evidence from long-term followup studies have shown that some persons with biopsy-confirmed celiac disease may never develop symptoms or complications” – I’m not going to risk getting cancer, are you??? The USPSTF is taking public responses to their draft, all of which must be submitted by May 30th. I highly urge you to write in and explain why universal screening is important. My Celiac diagnosis saved my life. If universal screening can do the same for a huge portion of the population – I am all for it. This could be the most important thing you do for Celiac Awareness Month. Read the draft and write to the USPSTF here. http://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/Page/Document/draft-recommendation-statement150/celiac-disease-screening
    • New to this--first gluttened exp. How to feel better?
      Just adding to what others have said.  It does take some time but it's likely you will start to feel better.  It took me about a year but now I feel great.  A good probiotic might help.  I use one from Synergy that my naturopathic doctor sells at her office.  I have gotten in the habit of emailing restaurants before I try them and have had very good luck.  One owner of a very popular restaurant in my area took the time to reply and said she had Celiac disease (she sent great detailed info about their food).  Many of the people responding will even tell you who to ask for when you come in.  Good luck and hoping you feel better soon.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
