Dairy-free Breakfast Ideas?
0

16 posts in this topic

Hi all - I'm SO sad to have to give up dairy, hopefully it is temporary. :( I can handle the rest of the day, but I really don't know what to do about breakfast. You guys are awesome, anybody have any dairy-free breakfast hints? I can only think of peanut butter on gluten-free bread of gluten-free waffles......no more cottage cheese wtih fruit, yoghurt, milk on cereal (sniff). :( Breakfast is really important to me. I"m lost.

I would LOVE your suggestions....

Thanks!

Susan

Eggs, 365 Organic Rice Milk or almond milk with gluten-free cereal, Silk soy yogurt, fruit with almond or peanut butter, buckwheat groats, hot rice cereal, Bob's Red Mill mighty tasty hot cereal, Arrowhead Mills pancake mix, bacon or canadian bacon (all natural nitrite free is good), gluten-free muffins, fruit smoothies, alpsnak bars, clif nectar bars.

Earth Balance and 365 Organic Rice Milk are excellent dairy replacements. Blue Diamond almond milk is good as well. The only thing I don't know how to replace is the cottage cheese. Sometimes it also helps to think outside the box and eat lunch or dinner type foods for breakfast. Good luck!

How about a good gluten-free cereal with rice, almond, or soy milk? I found I much prefer these to regular milk anyway. Add some blueberries, banana, etc and you have a good healthy breakfast very quickly.

My preference for gluten-free cereal is "Mesa Sunrise" by Nature's Path - it's corn/amaranth/quinoa flakes.

My daughter has a shake for breakfast every morning. Do you have a blender? Whole Soy and Co. make shakes - they come in single serving plastic bottles in the refrigerated milk section. I've only found it at Whole Foods Market. They come in Strawberry, Raspberry and Apricot/Mango. My daughter loves them (I haven't tried them - I can't have dairy but I can't have soy either). Anyway, I put one in the blender with a banana. Or any type of juice (the necter type juices or orange seem to work best - peach, apricot, mango, raspberry, etc.) along with a banana and maybe some vanilla soy yogurt. Anyway, she's had one every morning for years now...

Every morning I make an omelette. It sounds more complicated than it is. I take egg beaters (everything but the southwest flavor - my favorite - are gluten-free) and take fresh spinach, ham and salsa and put it all in a small frying pan. It cooks up in about 3 minutes and I'm done. You can add whatever you like, but it is quick and filling and has veggies and protein so I consider it a healthy breakfast.

I eat two Enjoy Life Foods snack bars just about every morning for breakfast.

Foods by George has some gluten-free/Dairy Free baked goods like English Muffins and Blueberry Muffins, you can have the EM's with eggs and ham on them or jelly

Grits with jelly

Barkat's porridge with brown sugar and cinnamon OR applesauce

Hard Boiled Eggs

Left over dinner!

There are some gluten-free/Dairy Free cheese alternatives that are not bad, you just have to find them, if you have a Whole Foods near you that might be the best place to find them, also I used to use Rice Milk (make sure it's gluten-free), there are also almond milks and soy milks that are pretty good too.

Fruit! Any kind.

I don't do dairy and love rice milk on my cereal--I think its really good. I'd give it a try at least once if you haven't yet. Other ideas: gluten-free bar (like enjoylife), apple and peanut butter, fruit smoothie, frittata's on the go---bake eggs, veggies, meat, spices/herbs in muffin cups and bake. Then keep in fridge or freezer and heat-up in the morning.

Every morning I have an apple with peanut butter and an Ensure. Ensure is Lactose and gluten free! Around ten I'm a little hungry and I have a bannana or grapes. Maybe if you need protein in the Am you could try tuna fish, I know that's not great breakfast food, but it's high in omega 3's and you might not get hungry till lunch! I used to have a bagel and an apple every morning. I'm totally missing bread! Hope you get some good suggestions!

I do gluten-free waffles, gluten-free bagels with PB & jelly, eggs or omlettes with veggie cheese, grits with veggie cheese or plain and sometimes gluten-free doughnuts (occasional treat). I also have a large glass of calcium & vitamin D fortified OJ. You could make pancakes and add blueberries or other fruit, nuts or DF chocolate chips. Pamela's Pancake & Baking mix is good (does have buttermilk in it, but I am sure there are DF ones out there too).

Good luck!

My husband makes eggs with veggies and bacon every morning except one day a week and that day I eat cereal with rice milk. We precook the bacon so he only warms up enough each morning for a slice or two each.

If you want to stick to the basics, use dairy-free butter substitutes on pancakes, soy/rice/nut milk on cereal, or soy yogurt. Other things I have:

peanut butter on rice cakes

hot cereal

pancakes/waffles with fruit jam

muffins (made the night before)

scrambled eggs (w/ or w/o a corn tortilla)

any sort of leftover from the night before

a smoothie with fruit and coconut milk

THANK YOU, THANK YOU guys for those suggestions! Somehow I was just drawing a blank and kind of in a state of grief at not only losing GLUTEN, but then dairy. But, my stomach is about 3 inches flatter than yesterday....

I think that in heaven, there are great, fluffy clouds made of ice cream, BREAD, good fluffu gluten-filled muffins, homemade CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES, rice pudding.....and we will eat them all day with big glasses of milk!! :):):)

    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      The DGP IGG and TTG IGG versions of the celiac tests.  
    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      I am also IgA deficient. My doc took more blood and looked at 2-3 other markers in the blood work , transglutinase, and 2 others. My biopsy showed blunted cilia in sm intestine, but my IgA was low. He suspected Celiac due to cilia so ordered other blood tests. I also presented atypically, burny stomach and reflux...and very little else.
    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      If you have Celiac Disease, and you are IgA deficient, what do they check on your labs to make sure you are not being "glutened"?

      Hi again Richie, A lot of coeliacs have a problem with coffee, maybe you do too. It could explain the shakes you describe. I am sensitive to coffee, and haven't touched caffeine since last summer. (The detox lasted for 10 days and it wasn't pleasant, so if you ever give it up, do it gradually).  Sometimes when you're intolerant to something, when you have it, it makes you feel 'better' but it doesn't last and usually end up worse, it's like a drug - and in the case of caffeine it is. I also take a daily probiotic (gluten free and dairy free etc)., which is good for healing the gut.
    • Weird Reaction
      Cristiana and Flowerqueen, I haven't been officially diagnosed as Celiac but I had a DNA test in March 2015 which revealed I had the Celiac gene on both sides so it was advised that I have a test to see if I did have it. I didn't but I went off gluten immediately and haven't "knowingly" eaten it since. Before the DNA test I didn't have the nausea and trembling type feelings that I do now but I occasionally got the shortness of breath which I used to put down to being a smoker. (I quit almost 16 years ago) Anyway, this morning I woke with the nausea feeling, the trembling, loss of appetite, feeling of doom again but it happens so intermittently. I do have some unavoidable stress in my life all of a sudden so maybe it's all connected some how. But on the plus side my bowel movements have returned to normal and I go often especially after waking and having coffee. (Oh, and Cristiana don't worry about tmi with me. You would have to try pretty hard to offend me and nobody has done it yet. haha) I always think the worse to. The internet and Google are great but information overload becomes a real possibility creating some frightening scenarios. It's just interesting that the coffee with the MCT Oil (Brain Octane is the actual name) and butter makes me start feeling better and the nausea, trembling, anxiety seem to be extinguished by it but coffee with low fat milk doesn't although I do get more energy from it. I did read somewhere that MCT Oil was good for gut health though and if I had to describe it it would be like it just smooths over all the bad stuff with a nice soft lining.  It was recommended in my DNA test that I have more fats in my diet and low processed foods but I occasionally have gluten-free biscuits, gluten-free ice-cream (my true weakness) and gluten-free weet-bix. I've checked most of these items ingredients and they are pretty good. There is a lot of gluten free rubbish out there though which I completely avoid. Thanks GFinDC for your reply. I was going to speak to my Naturopath when I see her about Immune Health. My plan usually involves the Liver Tonic I mentioned above and heavy on the L-Glutamine which, apparently, is supposed to be excellent for gastrointestinal health but I'm not going to supplement with anything just yet until I get my blood work done and see if it reveals any deficiencies. I'm suspecting Iron though. Because I've had recent tests all coming back good I'm thinking a possible scenario would be a die-off effect I've heard of where all the bad bacteria have been killed off but your body can't rid itself of them quick enough so you actually feel or get worse before you get better. That's where the detox strategy comes in and I'm assuming replacing them with Good Bacteria via Probiotics. Again, this is what I have read in the past but it does seem to make sense in some cases. I do feel better in having found these forums though.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
