Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Since I was diagnosed about three years ago with Celiac Disease I have been eating Enviro Kids gluten free cereal. Before I was diagnosed I ate Total and Kashi Go Lean. I am about 10 pounds overweight and I would like to lose some weight. I would like to eat something healthy for breakfast because the Enviro Kids cereal is just calories and sugar. I also have an egg every morning and a glass of orange juice. I plan to still keep eating the egg and drinking the orange juice. Any ideas? They don't have to be cereal.

Bob's redmill Hot and Tasty cereal is a good option. It is similar flavor to oatmeal. It has 4 grams of fiber and no sugar. For flavor I add cinnamon, blue berries and soy milk. A cereal like this or one with more fiber and less sugar will help you stay full longer.

Since I have had to cut out all grains and milk I am having a breakfest of sauted diced onions, peppers, tomatoes and ham mixed with scrambled egs. I dice up enough onions, peppers and tomatoes for the week and keep them in a small container in the frig and just spoon out what I need every day. I add a piece of fresh fruit or berries on the side and coffee. Quite tasty and very filling.

I try to stay away from most grains, as well, being type one diabetic. My breakfast is usually a big piece of chopped-up fruit (apple, peach, pear, 1/2 banana) topped with plain yogurt and a small handful of chopped nuts and seeds. DELISH, and nutritionally complete. :)

i guess up north you dont know all the things you can do for breakfast ;)

there are a lot of good "southern" foods, given a lot of them have fat and sugar but they all come from the farmer tradition where it was worked off

some of the healthier things i can think of are:

-grits (corn meal basically that you put butter on along with mix and match of sooo many other things, sugar, salt, peper, garlic, cheese, jelly, etc, how ever i have heard by some people that no self respecting southerner puts sugar on their grits but what ever you like)

-biscuits and gravy, ive made gravy with just a random gluten free mix (probably similar to beths all purpose flour) and it tasted great, the biscuits werent very good but i just substituted gluten-free flour in so if you find a good biscuit recipe you will be good, heck even an ok one will be fine since they get drenched in gravy

-add a meat in and some gluten free toast, the enr-g breads are pretty good so far from what ive found and kroger's (idk if they are up in NY) cary them (at least the one by me does)

-omelets are always versatile

-fruits

puffin makes a "gluten free" cereal but its not in a gluten-free facility so im not sure if it will be ok for every one, ive had it some times but haven thad it enough to know if it makes me sick, i did eat some last night and had isues this morning but i ate a lot of stuff last night and probably more sugar in there than i should have.

I eat a lot of fried mush. I fry a bunch on the weekends to heat and eat during the week. I also make a good sized vege omelet and then nuke a portion for another quik breakfast. Sometimes, leftovers from dinner. I'm very bad in the am. It has to be something I can grab without thinking about! I also eat a piece pf fruit every am. Used to eat Total every morning!

i notice that i have started to eat less too over all with celiac disease, but i still dont eat in the AM, at least until after 10 or 11, i might be hungry but if i try to eat my body just goes "ewwwww" (i think the second part is more genetic though since my father never really eats breakfast)

My first meal of the day is generally my largest, and doesn't resemble what most people think of as breakfast at all. I usually have a big hearty vegetable stew with a freshly baked biscuit, or I'll make a casserole or something. Once in awhile, I'll make Kasha or buckwheat as a hot cereal, and add some raisins or diced apples or some other fruit, a little cinnamon, Stevia and salt. Adding some coconut oil in place of butter/margarine is really tasty too. Teff or amaranth also works well as a hot cereal. Sometimes I'll combine them together, and just cook it for the length required for the one which cooks the slowest. Kasha is roasted buckwheat, and can be eaten as a cold cereal too, in which case it's crunchy - sorta like grape nuts.

If you don't have much time in the morning, make something the night before, and put it in a microwave safe dish. Then in the morning, just heat it up and enjoy. Making extra dinner for the next morning would make it easier too.

Nuts, seeds, and other nutrient dense things are good at any time of day.

I have been eating Enviro Kids gluten free cereal . . . I would like to lose some weight. I would like to eat something healthy for breakfast because the Enviro Kids cereal is just calories and sugar. I also have an egg every morning and a glass of orange juice. I plan to still keep eating the egg and drinking the orange juice. Any ideas?

If you enjoy cereal then switch to Rice Chex. It sounds as if it has far less sugar than the Enviro Kids stuff. Instead of orange juice switch to whole fruit - by drinking juice you are just getting all of the sugar and very little of the fiber. If you skip cereal with milk then try to add some dairy via low cal yogurt - I like the Dannon lite and fit. Instead of a whole egg try using egg whites only - much better for you.

Personally I enjoy egg white tacos with salsa, or pineapple with cottage cheese, or rice cake with peanut butter and sugar free jelly. I think a healthy breakfast should include starch, protein, fruit, and dairy; plenty of starch for energy to start your day, and very little protein and fat (but make sure you DO have just a bit of both). If you want to lose weight I suggest using an Exchange-type plan from the American Diabetes Association. And if you have health insurance that covers it, make an appointment with a dietitian for great advice and a plan of action. Good luck!

Thanks everybody. I will try to add some of these foods to my breakfast in about a couple of weeks or so. I have another box of Enviro Kids and I need to finish that off first.

    • 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"?
    • Weird Reaction
      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.

      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.  
    • Daughter with celiac- need test result help
      You are doing well.  We didn't have a "normal" tTG for 6 years and were also very strict.  Kiddo was dx with hypothyroid as well and tTG fell a lot after getting on meds for that but still didn't normalize.  Finally cam down within the last 6 months (this after a trip to THE Celiac Dr. several years ago).  I wish we had done a DGP much earlier and I had pushed for that sooner.  I would start there and see what happens.     Sounds like you're doing everything right though. Sometimes it just takes time. 
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Remember that you have to be eating a normal gluten diet for the testing so don't cut back & don't stop eating it. Make sure they do the full, current celiac panel: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG

      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.
