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!! :):):)

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hello Elle Among this online community you are not alone in either your symptoms or how you feel about visiting the doctor.  I for one understand the anxiety that you are going through, my own weird nerve stuff and other puzzling symptoms have had me really scared at times.   So much you are going through could very well be gluten related, it really could.   But if it isn't, in the end it is worth trying to find out what it is going on so you can get the treatment you deserve. After all, it could have a really simple, treatable explanation, once the doctors know what it is. I remember reading on another website something that has helped me with my own health anxiety - if one can summon up the courage to go and see the doctor, one should pat oneself on the back and be proud of oneself for doing the right thing.  I'm not terribly keen on the idea of being a proud person - but I think it was meant in the best sense, and it is always good to do the right thing, even if one does it afraid!  It always makes me feel that bit stronger when I'm in the waiting room at the doctors! There is lots of great advice above.  Do take it and make sure you come back if you need further support. There are some fantastic people here to help.

      Hi Elle......do you think you would have better luck obtaining a full Celiac panel from your GP or a gastro doc?  You really need to be tested for Celiac because of all your symptoms.  Many other people probably thought they were dying of some horrible disease because they had so many symptoms that docs ignored.  Very common problem for us.  Plus, your Mom has had "IBS" all her life.  I should add that IBS is not a diagnosis.  No one needs to be told their bowel is irritated......they already know that.  This is where the medical establishment, no matter where you live in this world, fail us.  They need to find the root cause and there always is one.  You also do not need to have any gastro issues to be a Celiac but you do have some, along with all your symptoms mentioned.  Anxiety is a huge problem with Celiac Disease and for many, it goes away just fine on the gluten-free diet, without need of meds...which should always be a last resort measure.  I have never had an anxiety problem in my entire life until after I was diagnosed with Celiac.  I may have had it but with all the other numerous symptoms I had, the anxiety may have gotten buried somewhere.  But guess what? On the extremely rare occasion when I am glutened or cc'd, I get major anxiety for about 4 days and then its gone. B12 is a water soluble vitamin so whatever you don't use, it exits the body in your urine.  It is pretty damn hard to overdose on the stuff.  I take a B vitamin everyday, very high quality ones and my B12 is usually in the high 600 range.  Optimally, it should be between 650-800 so yours was abysmal pre-supplementation.  Absorption can also be affected by PPI's.  You did notice improvement with the tingling sensation and fatigue once your levels were way up so take notice of that. My biggest advice is to get your mother and you tested for celiac, with a FULL PANEL. Then you'll have to wait and see what that shows. You could always trial a gluten-free diet if all testing is complete and the results were either negative or inconclusive. That sometimes happens with people, especially if they have Celiac's other cousin......non-celiac gluten intolerance.  This would be the best route to go with regards to your anxiety, unless it becomes disabling and you need meds, short term. Make sure you tell them that anxiety is a HUGE symptom of Celiac and it is not normal for younger people to have extreme anxiety like that, for no reason. Good luck to you and please call and make the appointment. I understand your fear....I hate doctors and it's pure mistrust. But sometimes you have to address a problem head on.    
    • newbie diagnosed mom - testing 8 yr old now
      good to know. I am not going for a biopsy. I do not have health insurance, i know i know please no political comments. My children do. My husband and I don't right now. If we lived in another state, we would have coverage. I just made an appt to do a full blood panel for my daughter this week. I would rather find some confirmation for her through a blood test, i feel a scope is too invasive for a child.

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Well, if I were you, I would go see your doctor and talk to him/her about all this.  Tell your doctor about your anxiety. When I finally did, my doctor prescribed a low dose of an anti-anxiety med and it has made a world of difference in my life.   About the whole thing with the B12 and the weird symptoms . Keep taking the B12 in the meantime to see if that helps again. But talk about it anyway.  If you want a celiac test, ask for the panel to be done. Your doctor may or may not want to send you to a GI for that. Remind him your mom is being tested. You do not have to wait for her results.  Work with your doctor if possible and if not, maybe find a doctor you can work with. If all you end up needing is b12, that's a good thing. If you end up needing more help, starting with your doctor and a heart to heart Talk will have you going in the right direction.

      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,
