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!! :):):)

    • Research Celiac Ataxia for potential diagnosis. Look at Milk and dairy for potential head and sinus related issues.  I stopped dairy and I can breathe now! Saturated fat may also be a problem, but it's mostly dairy!
    • It is best not to try and do this on your own. Talk to your allergist. Not all will deal with food intolerances but if yours doesn't find one who will.  Mine had me fill out a very detailed diet questionaire and tested for true allergies before he gave me my starting point. I will admit I wasn't real happy with my starting point since none of my usual foods were on it. He said that I was most likely to react to foods I ate the most so most of the 5 I either rarely ate or didn't really like. The prescribed starting point he formulated was designed to make sure I had adaquate nutrition and enough calories.   It took about 2 weeks before a lot of my tummy issues resolved and I was then able to start adding foods in one at a time for a week before moving on to the next.  He said food intolerance reactions can take up to a week to show up so I had to be sure it was a full week between food additions. I did have to call three offices before I found a doctor who could do the formulation of the diet but this guy truely saved my life. Out of all the doctors I had seen, including specialists in big hospitals, he was the one responsible for finally realizing I was celiac. He of course referred me back to my clueless GI doctor who confirmed the diagnosis by almost killing me with a gluten challenge. I should note that some of my intolerance (not gluten of course) did resolve after I had healed. Even dairy which I hadn't been able to have for years! I hope you can get some answers and are able to heal soon.
    • I'm 43 years old. I'm married and have two teen daughters. After all these years it was one of my daughters who tonight said to me: "you probably have Celiac disease" after hearing my wife and I talking about all the pimples I always get on my arms. I never heard of the disease but I have heard about a lot of people having gluten allergies and didn't know they were the same thing. So I started looking it up on the internet. Turns out I have had all the symptoms all my life and no one has ever said anything about it possibly being Celiac disease. When I was a kid my doctor gave me prescriptions to antibacterial soaps to use for the arm pimples. Hibitane I think was one of them. And I've always had swollen looking ankles as long as I can remember. All my life people have noticed it. As a kid and teen I played lot's of sports and have broken my ankles and sprained them so my mom and I brushed it off at that and so did my family doctor when I was young.  But I always thought it was weird that the swelling continued all these years.  I have had a bloated feeling stomach all my life too and chronic diarrhea. My stomach is always hard and swollen feeling. Not ever knowing what that stuff was related too so I have never mentioned the bloat or diarrhea to a doctor. Just kind of embarrassing I guess. As my wife and I were reading about Celiac Disease on the internet together tonight she pointed out to me that that's probably why these symptoms almost all went away when I did a very low carb diet for about a year straight to lose weight a couple years ago. I had solid bowel movements, no bloat, ankle swelling went down but I thought the improvements were from weight loss and just eating healthier . But perhaps in reality it probably had a lot more to do with not eating all the wheat products/gluten products. So tomorrow I will be seeing my doctor to talk to him about it and to ask for the blood tests. I have read that I should continue eating gluten though until my testing is done. So that is crappy but I guess it's better to know for sure. Something else I think I should point out too is that I get headaches quite a bit after having big meals. Now I am thinking that may have something to do with the gluten too. I have read that some people with Celiac also get headaches with the other symptoms. It's great to see there is a forum like this to help people out with these issues. If I test positive for Celiac I will for sure be following this forum closely for advice and diet/nutrition help.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:
